The Actor Franz Dinda Talks About Style

Franz Dinda is a prominent sponsor of the first Topman in Germany. We met the actor at a style-interview in a café in Kreuzberg.

Dinda is on time, grinning broadly, wearing a turquoise-colored longsleeve, a jacket with brown elbow-patches, over it. In the breast pocket of his jacket he carries a pen, wears bright green socks, gray trousers and leather shoes.

We asked him what he thinks of the current trends like Baseball and creepers, what his biggest fashion sin was and how he has found his style.

Describe your style.

Still in style.

Can style be taught?

If your environment sharpens your senses when you busy yourself with the topic, then style can certainly be learnt. Like almost everything else in life.

How did you find your style?

It has grown with my aesthetic sense. Eventually I got, that clothes are not only functional, but also visual. But my style is evolving. What I wore three years ago, I would burn today.

Important issue: style sins. What are your biggest ones?

Red cowboy boots with flame pattern. I loved her above all else. Why? I ask myself today. Pointe shoes, so the cut on the shit, I feel today as “Still in Style”.

What will you wear at your own funeral?

At the end of our little conversation we want to hear your opinion on four current fashion trends:

Trend 1: Baseball

It’s great on the baseball field.

Trend 2: Transparency

No-go.

Trend 3: Creepers

Terrible.

Partycrasher SpongeBob!

No, you were not hallucinating: SpongeBob was actually attending our recent Dandy Diary Fashion Week Opening Party.

SpongeBob, who is usually just hanging out with weird inhabitants of the ocean in the city of Bikini Bottom came to our Dandy Diary FW party, to rave to hippie sounds and – as the professional that he is – to promote his new ‘SpongeBob’ episodes.

The new episodes are airing from the 23rd of february on, monday til friday at 5.40 PM on Nickelodeon Germany.

In the first episode, SpongeBob’s best friend Patrick is suddenly turning into a super-hero and wants to clean up Bikini Bottom. In another new episode, the small evil Plankton, is getting a pet, but of-course not a normal one. Mr.Krabs on the other hand is spending an eductional and adventurous night in a bank-safe.

Oy, oy, oy – this is where it’s happening, Bikini Bottom. Therefore: Kids, chips and turn on the TV.

The next Dandy Diary party will be held in Bikini Bottom by the way.

Dresscode: Seapunk!

SPECIAL

 

DANDY DIARY-Feature at ARTE

As if we didn’t have had enough to do, our party, fashion week, bell-bottoms and those alpacas, there was also a camera-team following us in the middle of january, from the favourite tv-channel of all smarties: ARTE.

Well, well – therefore there are again nice Dandy-videos (including porno-extracts), unseen pictures of our crazily-wild scandalous party and finally also a close-up of the alpaca ‘Ferdinand’ to watch. Already for the last part, it was already worth it.

And hey, this is ARTE. Not ProSieben. That is gratifying. Even for us extreme haters. 

You can watch the whole show here, for the next three months. Do it, homies, otherwise there is punishment!

P.S.: That we are in the very same show as the god of trouble and Liam-bro Noel Gallagher, is of-course nothing but the highlight of our career. 

TRENDS

 

C’est cool: Patches!

We are urgently asking for jackets, pants or sweaters, which carry an uncountable amount of patches.

Since we do not have time, nor the passion for a fabulous DIY-piece, were hereby want to ask all the PR-agencies on the planet to send us designs by their fashion-designers, which have patches on them (you can find the address in our legal info)

As often, Raf Simons was the pioneer of the trend ‘patches’. Or at least the designer, who’s influence can also be found in the collections by other designers. Simons showed designs in his SS 2015 collection, which showed images of personal memories (friends, family, astronauts, sharks etc.). He used the patches as some sort of mood board.

Kit Neale and Astrid Andersen have refined their pants with patches in their current collections (AW 2015). Sandro PARIS did the same with their already mega-hot leather jackets. And the Danish young designer Martin Mitchell made a jeans-vest.

The rule ‘the more the better’ counts of-course also for the patches trend! Go for it!

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.
