First and foremost I would like to hereby apologize for the crappy title ”Sportugal”, but nothing better crosses my sunstroke mind yet. Please just do not pay attention to it.
Portugal, Praia da Luz, 32 ° Celsius. Just in the heat of noon yesterday I slipped in a variety of courts, to throw myself dressed in the latest sportswear into a battle with different balls. Logically, I wear the colors of the reigning German football champions Borussia Dortmund: black and neon yellow.
My outfit consists of a black New Era cap, a pair of maximally sporty sunglasses with gradient skull-shaped custom glass, a neon yellow goggle strap (très sportif), a neon yellow vest from American Apparel, black Pêşmerge pants from Turkey, neon yellow sport socks from American Apparel and black-yellow-performance shoes from Nike. In addition, I carry a red sunburn on my nose and shoulders, trendy amongst the British hooligan scene.
What happened at the end of my ultra-busy sports day, I had mentioned yesterday.
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.

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)
