After 1342 Fashion Shows, 78 hours of small talk and 498 glasses of champagne – yes I counted – I went to find some sun, now enjoying a well-deserved vacation in Sardinia.
The location for Look du Jour – 69 is a ruin in the mountains of Sardinia. I am wearing a tank top by American Apparel, Sandals by ZIGN, a Borsalnio hat, a citreous quilted vest (no idea about its origin), and way too short shorts, obviously on purpose. Because wearing your pants at half-mast is the shit as we all know.
Since we like to dare and challenge our readers now and then, here’s a close-up of my feet, a premiere. Enjoy!
A dick was enough to make the fashion world freak: RICK OWENS - sent out his models with coats and tunics, which were cut out at the crouch or had a hole, on the runway.
Under the designs of the ‘prince of darkness’ the models wore nothing, therefore the viewers, and a few minutes later also for the rest of world, could spot some penises.
Rick Owens told the i:D magazine backstage, how it happened that he broke that taboo:
“I thought it was the most simple, primal gesture-and you know I love a simply tiny, little gesture that packs the wallop. Not many people can do that. I mean, it’s a straight world now. And it also, I think, says something about being independent. Who else can really get away with that kind of stuff? It’s a corporate world.”
To show some balls – apparently a sign of independence. Rick Owens is one of the few independent designers, since his label does not belong to a luxury-conglomerate like LVMH or PPR.
The last time, that Rick Owens was shocking the fashion world is not so long ago: In 2013 he sent out raging dancers on the runway.

A few years ago, streetstyle-experts started wearing their jackets or coats around their shoulders, instead of putting their arms through their sleeves. The technical term for that is ‘coat slinging’.
Recently, the german newspaper BUNTE (!) reported about the styling-trend. ‘Coat slinging’ therefore officially became a ‘no-go’. So: dear friends with good taste, please stick your arms in your sleeves from now on.
Because a sleeve without an arm, is like Justin O’Shea without Veronika, like Cara Delevigne without eyebrows: somehow not complete.
In 2008, Scott Schuman (aka: The Sartorialist) has revealed the first case of ‘coat slinging’ on his blog, afterwards an epidemic broke out, from which the fashion-world still has not recovered.
It has been enough: put your jackets on properly again! Otherwise you appear like a gay fashion-journalist from 2010 (who would put his arms into sleeves nowadays)
