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.
That a technical instrument is inspiring to me, happens almost never to never. The last time must have been in 1998, when I bought a pocket vagina, which inspired me to have a romantic, twelve-seconds-lasting tête-à-tête. Afterwards there was not much. All in general.
But that has changed. For my new cell phone (a Xperia Z2 by Sony) I got a brand new microphone (view the picture above) with which I have been running around the streets of Berlin, just to show it to all kind of friends and to understand every sophistical sentence. The advantage: Different from the classic cell-phone audio recording, one understands stuff. Crazy! That is 2014!
And the stuff that I heard, simply was the best. My friends seem to be the smartest people on earth. Therefore it would be nothing but rude, not to share it with the rest of the world.
And just like that we are talking about inspiration again: Inspired by the cleverness of my friends, there is going to be a short-interview series here at Dandy Diary, called ‘Dandy Talks’, in which illustrious people like the flirt-legend Philip von Mollenkott or barkeeper-legend Quid Haden are sharing their tips and advises in what they do best. One can be - yes ! - excited.
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.
Next Level Yeezus
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.
