Happiness is to be found when in pursuit of it, in the soothed expectation, on the way, not only upon the arrival. Accepting detours, just going the way, which is anyhow not this obvious to anyone.
Thomas Bettinelli



Happiness is just a hairflip away.
Chris Crocker

A NEW CLIP EVERY WEEK HERE

"The way the system works now, you see the clothes, within an hour or so they're online, the world sees them. They don't get to a store for six months. The next week, young celebrity girls are wearing them on red carpets. They're in every magazine. The customer is bored with those clothes by the time they get to the store. They're overexposed, you're tired of them, they've lost their freshness".
Tom Ford

Geil Magazine #1

Geil Magazine is an entirely new magazine concept for the German market -a fash mag for men including features on grooming, art, shopping, interesting gadgets, travel and lifestyle for the modern man. Instead of the barely-clad girls and fast cars typical in mens mags, Geil Magazine is a more fashion-oriented niche consumer magazine comprising about two hundred pages, covering both the German and int'l fash scene.
Geil Magazine will present the hottest and trendiest designers as well as more traditional, classic and sporty brands. It's a hi-end mag that aims to inspire the readership while stimulating the joy of shopping (sic).
Why Geil ? In the German lexicon, Geil is properly used for a sexual state of excitement (Ich bin geil = I'm horny), but can be used by extension for almost anything that's exciting : music, clothes, cars and so forth... Geil Magazine is about what turns men on.

Geil Magazine #1 (part 2)

"Scents of a man" is the title of this editorial by Don-Alvin Adegeest shot by Manila-born photographer Lope Navo for the first issue of German fash mag Geil Magazine.





Perry Ellis

When John Crocco said his new collection for Perry Ellis was democratic preppy, he meant it politically, as in preppy without the privilege. Too bad that such a bold statement didn’t translate into energy on the catwalk. Crocco talked about making color a key component of the collection as an antidote to neutrality, but the fact that he opted for ice-creamy / baby shades kind of undercut his intention (and calling the dominant tone “boy blue” didn’t make it more interesting). Still, the designer’s knack for detail made something he called a “vacation shirt” look good. And drawstring cargo pants in natural linen also cried out for a holiday. Crocco may have a dry wit -at least, I think that explained the pink polka dots he embroidered all over a tan blouson and a pair of shorts. Elsewhere, he opted for the boxy suit that is already asserting itself as the shape of the season in New York (if you need a cultural touchstone, it has to be "Mad Men"). Crocco’s was crinkled. But if times are really so tough, he has nothing to lose by pushing the boat out a little more. Sober clothes, yo but possibly too much and almost tedious. In order not to have the audience fall alsleep, he had the good idea to hire the crème de la crème of male models as you can see. Maybe he’ll be more direct with his next collection.
