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!
Since our two Topmen in Hamburg and Berlin are doing such an extraordinarily good job and have even assimilated well with the bloggers on the Topman facebook page in the meantime (here is a prime example), we are now, in collaboration with TOPMAN, looking for a third – well – Top Man.
WE ARE LOOKING FOR THE FIRST TOPMAN IN MUNICH
