This Thursday, i.e. tomorrow we’re celebrating the launch of the first FASHION DESIGNER FOURSOME with a crazy Top Trumps tournament.
For this illegal gambling event we have invited friends from Hamburg’s and Berlin’s fashion scene. As the first prize we’ll be giving out €1,000 – the winner takes it all (obviously black, tax-free, and in cash).
The exact tournament has not even been announced to the guests yet. We will only communicate it on Thursday around noon while trying at the same time to lead on the police, making them look in all the wrong places. – because illegal gambling is unfortunately still illegal.
Since we don’t only want to the tournament with all of those face we already know though, you, our readers, have the chance to win two spots for the tournament.
Those of you who want to enter the Foursome-tournament-invitation-competition only have to be friends with us on facebook (i.e. like our page) and comment on facebook below the following picture why you and your +1 would make that backroom gambling event better. The competition ends Thursday, 1 November at 12:00. May the most beautiful win.

Sandals – every child knows that – are the shit, at least in summer, independently from any normcore-relations.
Especially hot are the strap-kickers by Opening Ceremony and the sandal-giant Teva. Absolute hipness- and absolute slipper power are combined here.
Plus the lookbook really looks cool. That is always great.
The sandals can be ordered here, for the faire price of 100,- US-dollars.
Unfortunately we will have to hand the honorary price of the most beautiful menswear-blogger, over to someone else, which hurts us a lot.
The new hottest guy in the blogosphere of men’s fashion is called Bodhi, he became famous over the social media TUMBLR, has published his first book now and is a great Shiba Inu. Nobody looks better in a shirt and collar than him. At least we don’t. We are willing to admit that. It simply is: the reality.
The book Menswear Dog Presents the New Classics: Fresh Looks for the Modern Man, which Bodhi published together with the authors David Yung and Yena Kim, can be ordered on Amazon.
We already wrote about Bodhi in our quiz ‘Which fashion-blogger likes to smell asses and earns 15.000,- Dollar per month’ . Due to the new book, Bodhi should be able to smell EVEN more asses and to earn EVEN more cash. Ouuuuuuuuu!!! We also want that!!!!
The most beautiful cafe in Copenhagen is located at the up and coming island Papirøen and is owned by the fashion designer Henrik Vibskov. I know that, because I was there – and that is not obvious.
The long Danish man does not seem to care about people knowing about ‘Den Plettede Gris’ . Only a few insiders in the city and the cafes close neighbours, know about it.
Vibskov had to open the cafe a few months ago. It has not been his dream, but an obligation by his landlord. Because Vibs wanted to have his design studio in the same building, he had to promise the landlord to also make the house accessible for the public and therefore to open a cafe.
And the designer did so, even if he had some issues with that: During winter, the industrial area, which is located directly at the water, is hardly populated. Even the close-by design-university with it’s hundreds of hip students does not change that. The maximum of ten seats at the cafe are rather inviting for a short stay. The actual popular places are the outdoor places directly at the bridges platforms. But there one prefers to be during summer. Who has been at a fashion show by Vibskov during winter, at the close-by located warehouses, knows how brutally cold it can get.
Since he had no other choice, Vibskov still opened the cafe, despite his doubts. That he had to personally visit a hygiene-course and had to deal with the art of making coffee, has been grouchily accepted.
The special interior of the 14 square meter small cafe apparently has been the smallest issue. The inspiration came from the inside of a piano. That is why there are ropes everywhere, which are reminding one of strings and wooden pieces, which seem like a keyboard. Similar designs were presented at fashion shows by Vibskov in Copenhagen and Paris.
The menu of ‘Den Plettede Gris’ is similar Scandinavian direct, as the master himself. There is coffee, tea, water, beer and wine. No snack, no breakfast, no frills.
Vibskov preferes to drink his coffee black anyway.

Sweat-pants are still super hip. There is no high fashion-label, that does not offer one of these very expensive, un-formed pants. And especially also H&M, Zara and all the other affordable retailers. Everybody is wearing them and currently one can’t do anything wrong by wearing them. Who decides to stick the pants into his socks, is at the very front.
Even further are the cool-cats among you, who have already discovered the next pants-trend: Baggy-pants.
This trend does obviously have it’s origin in the raging 90s trend, therefore a time, before Hedi Slimane even explained to Karl Lagerfeld, that one is only allowed to wear very tight skinny jeans from now on, in the year of 2000.
SKINNY JEANS WERE COOL THE DAY BEFORE YESTERDAY, SWEAT-PANTS YESTERDAY, TODAY BAGGY-PANTS RULE
GUCCI and MARC JACOBS have presented rather wide, straight-cut pants at their shows for autumn/winter 2015 (view the picture), as well as the brands A.P.C. and BOTTEGA VENETA. And also the influential blog Hypebeast has recently reported about the shift of sweat-pants to baggy-pants (and it’s influence on wearing sneakers). The trend is a topic for several players in the fashion-industry – which is a good sign for seeing it soon on the street.
When exactly the look is going to be seen there, is mainly depending on the question if the massively hip Hip Hop scene os going to pick up on their old looks and is going to wear baggies instead of tight skinny jeans and comfortable sweat-pants. After-all, rappers like A$AP Rocky, the gang from ODD FUTURE and Kanye West are important promoters for new trends in men’s fashion.
We think that this trend – which should be clear – is definitely dam’n cool and will try everything to adapt our closets to the baggy pants trend.
HOOD BY AIR presented their new collection ‘Daddy’ in a cellar-like setting at the Wall Street, the centrum of finance.
The mastermind behind HBA, Shayne Oliver, showed classics from the world of fashion, like button-down shirts, sweaters and polo t-shirts in the typical unisex Hood by Air Silhouette. Therefore it came to an hybrid between polo shirt and dress. Or camel coat and tank top.
The models wore locks in-front of their mouths and tights over their heads, like burglars. The soundtrack of the show, total freedom, was ended drastically, followed by jazz, underlined with the statement of the Empire:
“I wanna show you a faggot really can run this company”.
It becomes obvious how appreciated HBA is also in the art-world, when looking at the guests who attended the show, for example Klaus Biesenbach and Grace Coddington.
It seems that HBA, even after the diss by their once supporter A$AP ROCKY, is still very hip.
