Savile Row vs. Abercrombie & Fitch

Under a quite casual motto, “Give three-piece a chance”, tailors of the infamous Savile Row in London protested against the store opening of a proletarian fashion label, ABERCROMBIE & FITCH.

Till now, the American label hasn’t been present in the street where Prince Charles, Winston Churchill, Napoleon and probably every stylish Englishman bought their suits.

According to the British Vogue, city government has already spoken out against the establishment of A&F:

“Savile Row has a unique character — currently there are no high-street chains present (…). A management plan should be put in place to ensure this character is retained.”

 To see half-naked A&F sellers, teenage-girls taking cell-phone pictures, and even louder screaming fags, in the “Golden Mile of Tailoring” would be a terrible stylistic inconsistency. Still, we can’t consider the management plan against new high-street reatailers new advocates of libertarian values.

We would be way more excited if the long-established menswear specialists put the new ABERCROMBIE-stores on fire in old-fashioned hooligan manner and, true to style, wearing three-piece suits, of course.

70s Rockstar-Chic: LUISA VIA ROMA – Spring/Summer 2015 ‘Backstage Pass’ Editorial

If you want to believe the hip stylists of the Florence-based luxury store LUISA VIA ROMA and if you were paying attention at our last fashion week opening party in january this year, you know it already: the 1970s are currently brutally hip.

In their new editorial ‘Backstage Pass’, in which the LVR-stylist Carmel Walsh is showing the hottest pieces of the spring/summer-collection 2015, we can see a lot of 70s glamour and glammy rockstar-styles by, among others, DRIES VAN NOTEN, DOLCE & GABBANA, LANVIN, SAINT LAURENT, HAIDER ACKERMANN and BALMAIN.

If 70s rockstar-chic, then please like that, we think. That one has to have at least as much cash as the Rolling Stones, is obvious.

‘Born to Fail': the worst Leatherjacket in a long time by MATTHEW MILLER

To paint a critical message with white colour on your designer leatherjacket is pretty much the worst thing that one can do in his, in this case luckily, limited life.

It becomes EVEN worse and totally sickening, when one buys a designer leatherjacket (view this one by Matthew Miller) with a critical message drawn on it. What kind of people are that? I actually don’t want to know – and wish those asses a similarly bad haircut, like the poor dog, who had to wear this fucking jacket as a model.

In case someone still feels like getting this jacket for 1.350,- dollars: follow here. And please never come back.

New York Fashion Week: Hood by Air AW 2015

HOOD BY AIR presented their new collection ‘Daddy’ in a cellar-like setting at the Wall Street, the centrum of finance.

The mastermind behind HBA, Shayne Oliver, showed classics from the world of fashion, like button-down shirts, sweaters and polo t-shirts in the typical unisex Hood by Air Silhouette. Therefore it came to an hybrid between polo shirt and dress. Or camel coat and tank top.

The models wore locks in-front of their mouths and tights over their heads, like burglars. The soundtrack of the show, total freedom, was ended drastically, followed by jazz, underlined with the statement of the Empire:

“I wanna show you a faggot really can run this company”.

It becomes obvious how appreciated HBA is also in the art-world, when looking at the guests who attended the show, for example Klaus Biesenbach and Grace Coddington.

It seems that HBA, even after the diss by their once supporter A$AP ROCKY, is still very hip.
