And as it usually goes, the Launch has been celebrated with a Party/Opening/Drinking Event not far from the Harbor of Hamburg. Great Gin Tonic in plastic cups have been served, guests with Odd Future-Shirts attended, as well as Smokers and Drinkers. Everything done well.
The Posters, which are easily remembered as an addition to Tissue #2 if you read the magazine, have been glittered and signed by Martin Eder. There are only thirty pieces, which are 60 Euro a piece. Orders can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. We recommend to do exactly this. Go on, you bums, buy the poster and pin it above the breakfast table.

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)
