The bib things are usually a reference to fishing gear, no? Not that this affects their 'wearability.' WWM had some similar items in FW09. Maybe earlier seasons as well, come to think of it.

Re: late Woody Allen, Sweet and Lowdown must be the most overlooked/underrated film of his from the post-mid 90s. Vicky Christina Barcelona and Match Point are the only other legitimately good ones.

For the last two or three years Junya has picked up some trends pioneered by Thom Browne and mid-market Japanese brands and put them on a Paris runway. I like the clothes, but it's obvious what current he's following. I guess they're in a different category in that Junya brings the high-concept-auteur-designer...
