Gullam was another cool store with lots of Devoa. We also went to Lewis Leathers, which had some quilted numbers in turquoise, yellow, and red. Still have yet to decide whether a yellow rider is a good idea or not.

Definitely a fun date smile.gif

Daikanyama was probably my favorite area when I visited Tokyo last year. Makes me want to go back to Tokyo already....and my gf always jokes around that we should go back once a year already (pretty sure she's not joking).

I always have a rotating Fav 5 runway shows.

Currently (in chronological order):

Dior Homme SS05
Christian Dior Haute Couture SS07
John Galliano (mens) FW07
Yohji Yamamoto (womens RTW) FW14
Thom Browne (mens) FW14

Like I said, these are always changing and the two 2014 collections on the list bumped out some that are a bit older. I enjoy the theatrics of runway as I'm sure you can tell from the list.

I remember a couple of years ago maybe discussion on SF of a brand doing items (shirts, jackets) in a heavyweight jersey (maybe KKA? WJK?). Anyone else remember this? Google is not helping. Looking for MOAR HEAVYWEIGHT JERSEY

"Cut, proportion, fabric, and, not least important, the refusal to embellish beyond what is necessary—Slimane nails these elements in almost every garment."

LOL

Cathy Horyn also praised Slimane for reintroducing simple, wearable clothes, which I thought was half true. She was more talking about the women's collections, but if you look at men's -- half of it is ridiculously studded double riders and overly ripped jeans, while the other half consists of simple trucker jackets, graphic tees, and plaid shirts. That is, the kind of stuff you'd expect to find at any high street store.

Isn't that the usual criticism (among many) of Slimane's new SLP line? That it's what you'd expect to find at Hot Topic and H&M, but for 1000x the price?

listen, studs are a necessary embellishment. like it or not though, it seems slp is selling and it undoubtedly has influence in the fashion industry. on a related note, kinda surprised virgil abloh / kanye weren't in there.

can't really decide what my favorite runway shows of all time are. some notable ones that come to mind are yyph ss12, raf summa cum laude, helmut lang ss03, dvn ss10 maybe. there a bunch of others that I definitely like from yohji (ss04, aw11, fw08), dries (crazy fw14 actually!), helmut, a couple more from raf, even a rick show or two (aw07 i think). finding it really hard to pick favorites though. edit: also some more recent lanvin shows I really like
