I have always wanted to ask this. Maybe the older members know and can enlighten?
It's German for "attention". The purpose of Achtung was to highlight rare and/or authentic bags, sales etc.
Hope this helps!
Cool... so its German... interesting piece of info for me as I am Singaporean. Thanks!
Yes, I know, but why did they choose german as a language?
Is it because it sounds so funny and effective? Is it maybe because (if I am not wrong, but I am not sure either) Vlad lived or grew up in Germany for a quite long period?
Vad, is that right?
Here is a guess:
Didn't U2 name their last album "Achtung Baby"? So "Achtung Balenciaga" is kind of a play on that? Maybe not but every time I would see the thread I always thought of U2, lol.
I also had the association with U2, kind of a rocking edge to it.
me too eliza.... eheheh
I thought the same like you 'Ch' trama..... - but I'm not sure actually :s
Well, the funniest thing happened yesterday - I was out with my mum doing some shopping, and I decided to drive her car home
Anyway, I open the door, and what do I see - on the part where the door is connected to the car, the words "Achtung something"
I was like.... whoaaaaa!
I'd never noticed it there before - and then suddenly after this thread was opened, I do.
Weird things like that happen to me ALL the time!
The German members will be happy to know they are represented
Same here fashioncult!!! Whenever I learn a new 'cool' word I start hearing people use it all the time....must be something to do with how our brains work
That is so true...
But its everything with me. If I'm introduced to a new person, who I know I have never seen in the past (and I'm good with remembering faces) I end up seeing them all the time after that...
Or if I'm thinking about someone that I havent seen in a while, they call out of the blue... or I bump into them...
It even happens with songs on the radio... I will be thinking about a song or a singer (not a 'top 10' song either that is constantly played) - and wham, it comes on.
Those examples and many other things confirm that...
I'm a weirdo :blink:
so where is achtung????? I can't find it today, was it removed?????
Yes where is Achtung....can`t find it either....
