A Platform for Young Talents: Designer Scouts

Der Support für junge Designer in Deutschland fällt leider recht dürftig aus. Es fehlt an finanzieller Unterstützung für junge Talente, wie es sie beispielsweise durch das British Fashion Council in London gibt.

Langfristiges Denken wäre angebracht. Denn wenn die Berliner Designer erstarken, dann mit ihnen auch die Berliner Modewoche. Doch Ausnahmen, das heißt Plattformen für junge Designer, gibt es auch in Berlin.

Beispielsweise das Projekt Designer Scouts. Diese Saison fand das neunte Fashion Event des Projekts Designer Scouts statt. Mit dabei waren die Designer Franziska Michael, Marc Andersen und Emilia Tikka, die im Rahmen einer Gruppenschau ihre Arbeiten präsentierten.

Und im zweiten Durchgang zeigte das Männermodelabel Studio Laend Phuengkit ihre Spring/Summer 2013 Kollektion. Männermode mit einem asiatischen Touch:

Bean Bag and Box: Alexander Wang is also doing Interior

ALEXANDER WANG is daring to touch another, more peripheral, fashion-issue after the H&M-cooperation: Interior.

He designed a ‘Bean Bag Chair’ for the Italian label Poltrona Frau and a booze-case – or rather wrapped it with black leather.

For 8.800,- dollars you can buy the luxurious bean bag, for 18.500,- dollar the box. One can only hope, that Wang used his own ball-skin for the pieces, considering the price. Everything else would be: rude.

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)
