Lace for Men/Hot T-shirts made in Dior-logo-lace
At the Dior show, the history of the French fashion House was dug up from the archives: the monogrammed lace or sheer mesh design, populair in the 1980s and originally used for women’s ‘intimates’ (underwear) was re-used for t-shirts.

In the 1980s the Dior monogrammed sheer mesh was considered a bit tacky. Next to stockings and perfume it was the cheapest Dior-item available. It still is tacky now, maybe even more so because we think it’s executed in flock-printed mesh; but in a good way! In our opinion these t-shirts look só hot on men! #thatshot #auchhaben

Last Thursday, 21st of June, Dutch fashion label Schepers Bosman presented their new collection from Paris, France. The Spring / Summer 2019 menswear collection is all about ‘being a tourist in your own city’. With their fashion design Schepers Bosman try to paint an image of a big city, with it’s unknown, undiscovered peripheral areas.
Schepers Bosman gathered exotic elements from their surroundings in Amsterdam, which is situated in the New-West part of the city. Fifties mosaics and murals found in that neighborhood have been translated into abstract prints and cast as a layer over Schepers Bosman’s modern, elaborated holiday wardrobe, Dutch fashion at it’s best.

Christopher Bailey gave Burberry the Rainbow Check
Christopher Bailey has been working for 17 years at the luxury brand Burberry, both as creative-director and later on also as CEO. He was responsible for the very succesful revamping of this classic brand, which is of course famous for it’s gabardine trench coats; lined with the, even better known, trademark plaid in beige, black and red. (created in 1924 and officially named ‘Nova check’).
The Rainbow Check
Mr Bailey is leaving the brand in March 2018 and will leave the company completely by the end of 2018. The last collection under his supervision: The February 2018 Show, is not only a gift to Burberry-Lovers but also to the LGBTQ+ community. The collection was dedicated “to and in support of, some of the best and brightest organizations supporting LGBTQ+ youth around the world”. There has never been a more important time to say that in our diversity lies our strength and our creativity.’ – Christopher Bailey
And so it happend: ‘The Rainbow Check’ was created. Iconic!

Violet Chachki, the winner of season 7 of RuPaul’s Drag Race, closed the Moschino show on the runway in Milan the other day. Remember; it’s the menswear shows for fall/winter 2018 we’re watching. Ms Chachki wore a black tuxedo, with a ‘twist’. Jeremy Scott, designer for Moschino, named this garment the “tandem tux” because the tail was fixed to yet another model wearing the same jacket. Our best guess is that it was a female model: Violet looked rather manly. Don’t get us wrong here: we think she is always adorable!
Mimi Berlin watched the Prada show via livestream (prada.com) in the comfort of her own headquarters (praise technology!) and she has something to say about that fashion show. In a nutshell; first impression published on instagram.
And we’re off to the convention center. Which is also our holiday spot for this year. We are global citizens, wordly wanderers. We are proteced from the cold by High-tech gear, we don’t need socks. Our summer outfits are padded and printed. Our work-wear is made from padded nylon and other thick high-tech cloth (or is that wool?) the colors are in tonal hues of black, yellow, purple, brown and green.

Closing Show at Amsterdam Fashionweek by Maison The Faux: FAUXmosapien
Maison The Faux are Tessa de Boer and Joris Suk, they are based in The Netherlands. (read more about MtF Here on this blog) Let us begin by describing the show venue at the Westergasfabriek. It was filled with 12, neatly lined up, Ergoline Prestige1600 tanning machines. If you didn’t know these were sunbeds you could easily imagine yourself being in the hibernation room of a spaceship traveling in time (think Aliën or A Space Odyssey for example) Anyways: it all looked great! Placed at the beginning of the catwalk, in front of the huge movie screen, was a centered ‘check-in desk’ with an entertaining performance by 3 hostesses. All this looked like something Mr. Lagerfeld could come up with for a Chanel Show…. Okay; enough about the inspiration/dreamed-up world Maison the Faux shared with us, the audience, after all this was a fashion show. The collection was divers within it’s design-format: it included extreme looks (so-called ‘experimental’) with a follow up on more wearable designs (so-called ‘commercial’) In our opinion covering both qualities in one collection is an intelligent and strong way of communicating with the audience. It helps you to understand (unconsciously or not) why you need that striped dress (and the photographed outfits below). Without kidding; communicating by means of fashion isn’t an easy thing to accomplish, but SO nice when it happens! Don’t worry if you missed this show; there will be a second chance to see it at New York Fashion Week in September.
