Trend: Designer Bottles

It’s highly trendy in the alcohol industry to let artist designs bottles for booze.

The vodka brand ABSOLUT has been doing so for a while now and may have collected more artists than Wrhol had in his Factory. The most interesting for us fashion people is the GARETH PUGH-bottle.

The Paris-based music- and fashionlabel MAISON KITSUNÉdesigned an absinth bottle for PERNOD. It looks good.

On the beer market one holds to the classical clientelle and lets musicians design bottles. HEINEKEN’s recently got the METRONOMY band to do it, BECK’S got BLOC PARTY.

In Champagne field one stays French: MOET instructed the Paris-based night club owner and graffitti artist André Saraiva to design a botlle of rosé.

It looks like anyone might design a bottle of booze. We find it totally great but are asking ourselves: when are bloggers (us, for example) gonna be able to do that ?

It doesn’t have to be a soda bottle. A bottle of poppers would be absolutely fine for a start. We could surely present several ideas already.

Million Dollar Deal: PUMA wants Rihanna as a Designer

The german sportswear-manufcatorer PUMA is currently vying for a favour by RIHANNA. Rumours say that the enterprise from Herzogenaurach has offered the barbadian singer more than a million dollars, if she designs for PUMA

So far, so uninteresting.

In case that Rihanna accepts the offer, she would not only be a designer for PUMA, which has already been done by Beoncé’s sister Solange Knowles, but would also mean that she is not allowed to wear clothes by ADIDAS anymore from the moment of signing the contract, on. That is written in the contract between PUMA and Riri, if you want to believe some insiders.

We think that something like that is really great. On one side, because it is very amusing, that the enmity, which started in 1948, between ADIDAS and PUMA, is still on-going. On the other side, because we hope, that that goes along with Jeremy Scott losing his job as a designer for ADIDAS. Rihanna is one of the most consistent promoters of his horribly loud designs.

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’!
