Those opening pieces with the weird hips look a little different in 3D. The hips project forward, and I believe whole thing creates an arched shape like the person is sucking her stomach and kinda leaning forward. Looks as awkward as it sounds. Awful. The outerwear was best to me. The parkas, the leather, and the trench that opened at the collar are constructed that way to mimic the shape of Balenciaga's opera coats. Thought that was pretty cool, turning a kinda ugly ski...
Just catching up on some stuff in here. Saint Laurent was hilarious. It was Dynasty! If you don't remember Dynasty, check this out https://www.yahoo.com/style/big-shoulders-ahead-saint-laurent-194131819.html Also, it wasn't couture. It wasn't exactly RTW, but label reps said it wasn't couture http://mobile.nytimes.com/2016/03/07/fashion/paris-fashion-week-saint-laurent-hedi-slimane-rumors.html?referer=https://www.google.com/ Last but not least, what did people think of...
This. Bet Gap wasn't afraid of Zara even ten years ago. Now they're scrambling to figure out how to keep up.Also, don't think I've ever seen this snap of Marty Margiela before https://instagram.com/p/BBdlvTaLWUu/edit: Oh, and another point about Burberry et al. It makes a lot of sense when you consider that runway shows weren't originally customer-facing. They were more for industry people, like buyers and editors. That's changed with the internet (style.com, then other...
Sounds cool already. Tell T to get a move on producing clothes. Pics already look really good.Re: Bowie, not sure how many people know just how much of an influence he was on Hedi, but Bowie came up repeatedly in this interview: https://www.yahoo.com/style/exclusive-hedi-slimane-on-saint-laurents-126446645943.htmlFor instance
Haha. Well you're in luck because you can get a pretty similar version of the tux tee cheap. I get a laugh out of the dino sweater at least and do kinda think it's ugly in a way I like. The golf jacket just seems kinda sad to me. It hurts my feelings.
apologies if this was spotted already, but some great trolling here from SLP $450 for a tux tee $1,190 for dinosaur sweater, though this one's really not so bad $2,690 for golf jacket (poly/cotton/acrylic) with happy astronaut image. detail shot: (he kinda just looks like a dude gardening in a spacesuit) I wonder if the prices reflect the work of artisans in the old atelier carefully cutting the neckline of the t-shirt or crafting the happy astronaut
oh man, you guys just nailed my biggest pet peeve about their "radical transparency." so #1, exactly like GDL said, they're doing the exact same thing as J.Crew. Technically I think it's a little different than NMWA because you guys are working with designer brands that, for the most part, are selling wholesale, and putting the general consumer facing side on you guys, which brings me to #2. When you look at that flow chart of their product costs they have on every item...
Interesting number for you, research firm IHL estimates that globally businesses lose $8.4 billion every year in return costs due to wrong sizing. http://engage.dynamicaction.com/WS-2015-06-IHL-Ghost-Economy-Haunting-of-Returns-AR_LP.html As for price inflation, this still applies http://www.businessoffashion.com/articles/intelligence/fashion-inflation-why-are-the-prices-of-designer-goods-rising-so-fast
