I've met the DBSS designer and knew about it before I knew about blackbird (did it even exist?). Hype mainly comes from the sneakers and the good punky leather jackets (I know I first liked the leather jackets). Keep in mind there was a time when I posted a Julius purchase and everyone on SZ was like intrigued and asked me about the draping (before they started showing in Paris/being carried outside jp). Popularity gotta start somewhere and for the azn brands it seems the internet has been a significant driver of niche store awareness and even seasonal pickups. note: also the Julius/attachement/devoa/viridi-anne/etc are friends and acquaintances, they throw a nice and intimate party every season in Paris. btw I first learned about Julius from them internetz (runner on tFS, prob the guy that knows the most about fashion in Japan evarr).
