Oh, my, I've had an account at both places for most of a decade; there are many reasons why I don't post much, however. Back in 2004-05 both were quite lively with lots of really interesting industry experts and neat members... but most all have moved on. Anyway, will share more later.Nice Magritte, btw.
Interesting to compare two similar styles of bag and similar materials that can produce an ENTIRELY different effect (as Mies said... "Gawd is in teh detailzz.") While the Mismo bag I quite like, having a nice, subtle sense of refinement... I have to admit the latter bag I find really quite unattractive. I definitely think the material (waxed canvas) would be quite durable... but again from a refinement/style angle I don't like it at all.I'll post more later this week......
Bumping this thread for 2015. Very excited and happy to see the response to Linjer and the new colors "unlocked." Can't wait for them to start delivering!
All fair points. Sometimes my curmudgeonliness gets the most of me. I guess overall I'm just unimpressed to see the development and stylistic growth (or lack thereof) in the brand since it really started its menswear line in 2000.
Thanks (re: avatar). LaGuy has coerced Prof Fab out of retirement to do some random writing here and there, and we thought it would be good to give him a new graphic. It was hard to say goodbye to the Pink Dolphin... but I think the graphic captures the old spirit of the Prof Fab threads (now nearly 5 years old).
ps as a general request/complaint of the thread of late... (though the scent choices are great)... we need more conversation! The thread reads like a lot of people reading/spritzing past each other. Let us get back to commenting on each other's choices... adding our opinions, etc.
Never tried Noontide Petals... but re: aldehydes.... though I keep trying and have had every incarnation in which it comes, I say the same about numero 5.Aldehydes are a tough one to get right... and a lot go overboard. The original L'interdit is probably the best discernible aldehyde, in my book (though chanel n22 can't be beat as well).
All true; I think I saw that backpack, though, this past week and thought even at $600-700 it was way overpriced. For me, the problem with Saint Laurent Paris is unoriginal styling, lackluster quality, failure to remember the history/DNA of the brand, and wonky pricing. And as one who had pieces from Hedi's original collections back in 2000... and then at Dior... I think I'm allowed to complain. This shit he's doing now is tired, worn out, "been there," and for the very...
Not the right season for it, but needed a Roudnitska pick-me-up on a cold, rainy day. Dior Eau Fraiche : not as well known as others, this one preceded (and was the first draft for) Eau Sauvage and Diorella. The difference is in the DNA and the effect; Eau Sauvage has a warm, spicy citrus with a funky note and Diorella has that famous Roudnitska rotting fruity note. This one keeps all the usual citrus but settles less into woods or funk than a neat, soft aldehydic...
Oh, ok. Sacrilege! You are banished from my thread. (haha j/k)
