About the September Issue: Collars and suits.
Concept:
Collars and suits
For Teen Art Out no 12 we chose Delain’s “Collars and Suits”
Trying so hard to get by
To be the next big thing alive
But all the same
Every color I see, a pale shade of grey
Trying so hard and they say
„You’re just a signature away
Just one handshake”
Well here’s to collars and suits
And things that they say

„Once more it’s your chance, just take it
Once more, don’t be so blind
For all I care you fake it
It’s your chance to shine”

And it’s all
All that I dream of
There’s nothing I want more
There’s nothing I would trade it for
All I dream of
(My mistake if I’m not taking it)
It’s all I really want
(All at stake if I’m not making it)
There’s nothing I want more
My big break if I’m not braking it)
There’s nothing else
(My problem if I can’t take it)
It’s my problem if I can’t take it

Why would we change our own game
These are the rules by which we play
I’ve heard it all before
„Try to make up your mind
And make up your face”
I don’t believe in a way
To skip a chapter and be great
There’s no such thing
Where all traumas and flaws are gently erased

Here’s to the collars and suits
And the things they say
You’ve got bring something better to the
Table to tempt me
Here’s to the collars and suits
And the things they say
Better put your money where your mouth is

We live in a world of collars and suits. It’s a uniform and a norm. It’s what rules the world, it’s how you have to be for a high-power position. But how does that affect your personality? Do you ever become one with it?
One signature, one handshake and you move on. You work your way, become a mischievous persona and fight with everything you have… all for power.
Have you ever heard of “no collar, no service”? That means that collars and suits also bring you respect. They have power in their fabrics, they dress you up, give you confidence, open doors for you. And we all know that suits are to a woman what lingerie is to men.
So, tell us your story? What do you think of collars and suits? What about fashion itself and what about life? What of the power and respect? What of the job? Be creative and think big: collars and suits!
