Of course, we haven’t just designed a shirt and slammed you against the skull. No, of course, we have once again made a film, to bring the idea of our SIGNUM x DANDY DIARY shirt closer.
And that’s the point: in Green Invasion, the Berghain bouncer Sven Marquardt, fashion journalist Jan Joswig, a goat, Prada Model Frederick Schaller, musician David Moon and a bunch of drunken punks worship a four-meter-high totem. They are celebrating an orgiastic, destructive and very peculiar exhibition – whose sanctuary can be only one thing: the DANDY DIARY x SIGNUM -shirt.
And who wants it a little deeper, more boring and conceptual, should quickly read, what we’ve written out of sheer bravado in our press release for the film: “The elusive unease about the hidden evil in the forest goes hand in hand with an already almost occult fascination for the beauty of the original, the microcosm of the forest, goes into the living and dying so unaffected by civilization. The forest is always a poetical vanishing point, which can serve as a refuge from the industrialized working society. The forest as a possibility is always present. “
Who is eligible under this more like not quite understandable surge has still not got it correctly, what it had to do with our shirt, read following remarks: “The forest is our world’s volatile desire for solitude, serenity and naturalness. With the shirt, we can carry this mysticism, as a living, moving tree into the urban areas of our city – and thus break the separation between nature and civilization, at least aesthetically. “
Yes, we’ve actually written that. But that, of course, doesn’t matter. Just watch “Green Invasion”, you’ll know what the point is – namely, Mad Max in the forest.
