Damn Guy, that looks amazing! Hat takes it to level 99 . I have been looking into Van Essche's clothing for a bit now as a possible brand that would mesh well with Yohji so this is an excellent enabler (albeit maybe a bit too warm for my weather probably, hehe). Damn, I really need to find a hat. Next time I am somewhere with proper shops I will make that my top priority . shah, I did pick them up from Atelier. As David would say, it is good to build up the relationship...
It was a little stiff actually, almost like a khaki if I remember correctly. Makes it a lot easier to wear the way it was styled on the runway in that shot for sure though, lol. Felt like it would soften with age and washing. If I had the option, I would have picked the grey over the cotton (even though the cotton ones are in my top three fave pairs of Yohji pants!) if that helps.EDIT - Finally picked up some SS13 pieces. Hopefully they get here next week.Sarouel rayon...
extra thumb up for bearded look . Still pissed I missed out on that SS12 coat on Y! a while back. Sigh. That the new suit? Looks great!Really like these pants. Got mine in a heavy cotton and was looking out for the 100 gab. Great pickup! The grey looked amazing as well. Saw it in Rue Cambon store, but they only had it in a size 2 then .
Yeah I tried it as a backpack as well . I find it is easier for me to wear it with a single strap right side up so I can reach the zipper without much manipulation of the body itself. Worn as a backpack makes it look pretty badass! Now I want the skull backpack, lol.
As promised. Better pics of the bag itself (thought I would still upload these since the black & pinstripe iteration is not readily available online to see) and me wearing it today. It comfortably carries my Olympus EP-2 and my wallet in the main compartment. The secondary compartment is suitable for keys or cash as I am using it for here. Two things make this a lot more wearable in my opinion than it looks at first glance. 1. The use of suiting wool is really an...
Hana-Bi is one of my favorite films ever. Looking forward to discussion .
Someone get on this!
Just received my Shiva skull bag from DSM (with help from dantebykiko ). First impressions mirror those of jwjp. Definitely very impressed. After all the anticipation, it is pretty remarkable that Aitor and his team could make something that lived up to the hype. I also like the fact that it looks handmade and not mass manufactured - the little brand label inside and the production number are the most obvious. It is a lot lighter than I thought it would be (which at the...
Hypebeast Magazine Issue #4 has a feature on Aitor Throup: Is anyone picking up an issue? The cover feature is on Hedi Slimane, but the Throup feature looks like it could be worth it if the image below was an outtake: Will see if I can get my hands on it and do a scan.
Yeah, like sipang said he really does good interviews. I guess it is because unlike a lot of other designers he really took time to sit down and think about the what and why of his work as a designer. Since everything is basically kind of planned out ahead of time by his drawings and every little detail has a reason for existing, he is not working mostly on intuition (and lots of experience and or skill with the craft) or mood boards, which of course by their nature are...
