We've relied on DANNIJO
to get us a dude's number, a second date, hell, even an invite up for "drinks." So, consider our initial reception to the brand's latest news, a collab with Leandra Medine
, the blogger behind the Man Repeller (and a columnist right here
!) lukewarm at best. But after peeping the collection, cutely called MR. DANNIJO
, we're heating up. We've got some exclusive shots of the pieces (peep the slideshow), which range from a giant mustache necklace to an equally enormous bow-tie, and while they might not get you a nookie from a man, you guaranteed to get, in the words of Leandra, "a lady boner." And, actually, maybe more—check out our mini Q&A with DANNIJO designers Jodie and Danielle Synder before you make your decision
! If you are looking for a date or a one-night stand, should you not wear these pieces?
"You should definitely wear these pieces because they're conversation pieces and we guess that's considered man-getting. What's an easier pickup line than, 'why are you wearing a mustache?'"What is girl-repelling on guys?
"Class rings, tight V-necks, chain necklaces (unless you're Kayne), anklets, Puka bead necklaces, plumber's crack (unless you're Kris Cross), anything that advertises for a brand (ie. Abercrombie, Armani...shouldn't they be paying you to wear that?), speedos (unless your a professional swimmer), fedoras, T-strapped Birkenstocks..."Do girls wear man-repelling stuff to attract other girls?
"Yes, sorry guys, girls pretty much dress for each other even though we want to attract you. It's like 'no' means 'yes'—we're so complex."
