Went to barneys today-balenciaga & marzotto lab

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Went to Barneys today because I had a store credit to use up. I got to see the capsule collection by Nicolas Ghesquiere of Balenciaga. Yes, he has finally produced his promised mens line. Unfortunately, though, I was very unimpressed. Overpriced clothing that you could find at K-mart. I saw denim jackets, black wool sweaters, some white shirts, some okay pants....and that's about all I can remember. It was very underwhelming and unmemorable. Maybe I'm missing something? Has anyone else seen it? On the contrary, I have found another favorite line--Marzotto Lab. For those of you who don't know, Marzotto is an old textile firm like Zegna that manufactures clothing for a lot of the leading labels. Now, they've started making their own clothing. Their stuff is great; really creative. They had nice leather jackets and some really nice tops and shirts. All of their stuff had nice feel to them and looked modern, clean, the way I like it. :-)

I was at Barney's too today, lol. Did you get a free shave from the art of shaving; I did. The woman who shaved me was quite attractive and did a pretty good job. However, I don't think I'll be getting another one any time soon; my face is just too damn angular for a straight razor, though the alum block felt good afterwards. The woman use all art of shaving products: shaving cream, oil, badger brush, after shave lotion, and alum block. I was impressed by the shaving cream, having never used it before, sooner or later I need to pick up a jar.

Do you know if the Art of Shaving will still be doing a demo/the free shave thing on Monday? I'm going to be heading into NYC then.

They not only make the stuff for the leading labels, they own them as well. They own Hugo Boss and have just bought earlier in the year (the loss making) Valentino and Gianfranco Ferre.
