Shot of the Day

We were at the Copenhagen club “Simons” last night and hoisted our SIGNUM x DANDY DIARY-Shirt as a banner. We officially made territorial claims – and a few seconds later, ecstatically danced striptease in the cage.

A great evening that was. We love the Copenhagen Fashion Week very much.

Anna Wintour: How the VOGUE KIMYE Cover arose!

Doesn’t matter what Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are doing (XXL-back presentation, cheezy music-video making, wearing red shoes, coming late to the LANVIN show during the Paris fashion week) – everything and really everything is used either as a headline or often as very-funny photoshop-masterpieces made by the World Wide Web.

No VOGUE cover has caused a bigger discussion this year than the one, that shows KIMYE happily together.

The i-net mob indicted Anna Wintour and her myrmidons. One felt betrayed. The bible of style VOGUE all of a sudden lost style. Also fashion-celebrities commented on the cover in an appalled way, even vengefully announced to withdraw from their VOGUE subscriptions.

Anna Wintour recently spoke with the CCN journalist Alina Cho in an interview, about the notorious cover:

“I see the role of Vogue to reflect what’s going on in the culture. The first celebrity that I put on the cover of Vogue was Madonna, and that was considered completely controversial at the time, too. It’s such a long time ago probably no one remembers, but she was a very controversial figure. Now she’s part of the establishment. I think if we just remain deeply tasteful and just put deeply tasteful people on the cover, it would be a rather boring magazine! Nobody would talk about us. It’s very important that people do talk about us. Going back to Estée Lauder’s decision to make Kendall Jenner the face of Estée Lauder. What a fantastic decision that was! They have a wonderful brand that’s very traditionally American, and they decided they want to shake it up and reach a different audience. Now and again one has to do things like that. I think it’s part of the excitement and part of being a journalist. I hope another Kim Kardashian comes along this year!”

Uuhhh! We can relax again, because also Wintour doesn’t think that KIMYE is seriously stylish. She has allowed herself and her high gloss product to be part of a PR-gag. That worked fantastically. Chapeau, Mrs. Wintour!

Lumbersexuality – simply fat, old Hipster!

After metrosexuality and spornosexuality, is it lumbersexuality going to be in?

Media as The GuardianThe Daily Beast and Buzzfeed presented ‘lumbersexual’ as the ‘next big thing’. Men with enormous beards and bellies in lumber-shirts, in work-boots, with wool-beanies on their heads and a freshly tapped beer in their hand.

But is that really the new trend? Men, who combine checked patterns with checked patterns, and who look like they have chucked some trees in the wood. No, not really. The look has been existing in the gay-scene for years (‘bears’ or ‘cubs’).

Plus we already know about the core-elements of the look (beard, lumber-shirt) from the hipster-scene. The picture (view the photo), which was used to express lumber-sexuality in a photo, has also been used to present the usual example of a hipster to their readers.

The hipster already was an anti-movement to the metro. The man became a man again. Sun-studios, picked eye-browes or shaved chests – all in all a no-go for the hipster. ‘Lumbersexuality’ is therefore no new anti-movement to metrosexuality, as it is celebrated in the media, but simply a continuation of the hipster-movement.

Therefore an old, fat hipster, who is drinking beer the whole day and who is just to distinguish by experts of ‘gay bears’. Therefore: no ‘next big thing’!
