On the last day of my US-trip I had a little spare time, and decided to have a stroll through the trend-district Bushwick. I was wearing a falling-apart straw-hat. Also known as circular saw.
The pictures of me and my new Bushwick buddies were taken by Mr. Michael Moser. A photographer who lives in New York, and who’s international break-through, we are very sure, is soon to come.
This way, to see the first series, which we produced together in New York.
Who, like us, still has troubles managing the t-brake while inline-skating, even after years of practicing, can finally breath out: RICK OWENS has attached a massive brake-block to the current shows, which he designed for ADIDAS as for his fall/winter collection 2014.
We think that that is just fair and imagine through that, that Rick is not the most accomplished blader himself.
We are with you, Rick! Full solidarity with the brake-block-brakes! One with the underdogs!
P.S.: The shoes can be ordered for unattainable 790,- US Dollar, here.
In his latest campaign, he concentrates on the ‘model-of-the-moment’ Edie Campbell, or on her family.
In the video and on the pictures of the campaign, you can see Campbells mother, father, sister, brother and a wild bunch of cousins. Our favourite: her brother Arthus, who’s mullet is longer than Toni Garrn’s legs.
The family-history is showing a reference to the ‘mother / daughter / logo’ by Lanvin. In the campaign-video, which is three minutes long, one can see the family-members playing soccer, hugging each other or just babble along. And, not to forget, the horse of Edie Campbell. Like in all Lanvin videos, also the chubby Elbaz has his scene.
The campaign was shot – as one realises quickly because of the set – by the visionary Tim Walker. Guy Stephens was responsible for the video.

For the so-called “Impossible Project”, our favourite man behind the camera and in-front of the pissoir (look at his Instagram-account for more clarity), he recently followed us to London with a Polaroid-camera and took many pictures, which we are happy to release here.
What you see is: Dandy-Dave, Dandy-Jakob, Dandy-A$AP Rocky, the rapper Skepta, strippers, muscle-boys, asses and a little bit of fashion. Still it was fashion week, there in London, a few weeks ago. Enjoy!
After yesterday it was so incredibly hot that we could not motivate ourselves to write a single line at Dandy Diary, it looks very different today again. And that includes our new favorite drink.
We have asked our friends and acquaintances, consisting of mostly bartenders and drinkers, what we should drink. One of the guys was then talking about the “Chivas Cooler”. We have, of course, understood nothing but didn’t bother and drank. And indeed a lot. Delicious stuff that is.
It is thus clear: our summer drink for 2012 is the “Chivas Cooler”, which is nicely mixed as follows (original recipe from bartending and seafaring legend Philip Mollenkott):
5cl Chivas (12 years old, important!)
20 cl ginger ale
1 oz fresh lime juice
Fill with ice
Please try out.
We have ordered dozens of bottles of Chivas to be delivered home now. We have finally earned this for the first and hopefully not the last drink-post on our blog.
