Look Book: BALMAIN HOMME – Spring/Summer 2013

French fashion label BALMAIN HOMME is demonstrating impressively what not to wear if you are attempting to even remotely communicate style and taste in the upcoming Spring/Summer.

Because those who will be seriously running around with cross earrings, tight leather jackets, low-cut t-shirts, and skinny jeans is most probably a small-town Hedi Slimane fan (whose work has always been a guideline for BALMAIN) but certainly very far from being cool. Believe us, true story..

We say: thanks, but no thanks!

To show some Balls: a Sign of Independence!

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.

No-Go: Coat Slinging!

 

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)
