I like how they complain about Lagerfeld saying Adele is fat, and then call models freakish for being thin and tall.

I'm really tempted to get this in the largest possible size. Some anti-fit mohair coziness.

From a piece on Italo Zucchelli in BoF (part 1 and part 2)

"So how do you keep your audience interested?

"Instead of giving you a flannel blazer, which will always be in the collection, I might use a fabric that looks like flannel from afar but in reality it’s a techno-fabric mixing black and white; it’s a texture and it’s nylon; it doesn’t crease and it makes you look very sharp and modern. For Fall 2008 I used a thermo-fabric that loses color based on body heat. On the runway, the material gave off an impression of the model’s chest. These special effects are made to look effortless and it’s a way of updating familiar clothes.

...

"What are the most technologically challenging pieces you’ve ever created?

"We created a Mylar suit, although it’s not really a fabric, for Fall 2010. The concept of that collection was protection and Mylar, which is used for marathon blankets, is very thin, light and insulating. It also has great texture and nothing else quite gives you that effect. Mylar is only produced in silver, so we found an American manufacturer who could print color on the material. When we started making the pieces, which were heat-bonded, we found that the color would melt and fade in the heat, so we had to start over. We learned we had to face it with a protective layer. It was a whole process that took three or four months to develop and the manufacturer doesn’t speed up just because you have a fashion show! We managed to include the pieces in the show and they looked great on the runway, but it was very challenging. These types of pieces are very specific and are not necessarily bestsellers, but the Mylar suits actually went into production and were well photographed."

it's funny in many ways... Lagerfeld says some completely off the wall shit but it's mostly true. He's the Charles Barkley of fashion!

Calvin Klein is really mystifying as a brand-- on one hand you have "Calvin Klein" squirming around in the Macys swamp next to the likes of Club Room et al, then on the other hand you have Italo doing really awesome things with minimalism and showing clothes at the premiere locales. There's no in-between.

definitely... CK has had this problem of amorphous ambiguity b/t different "parts" of the collection for years. Some is total Macy's shite, and some is really great quality.

No, he started the project and lives in one. Owners are creative types as they refused applications from bankers, doctors and such and concentrated on, say, uni profs, journalists, designers etc. All the neighbors know each other very well and he did a favour to a friend by having his niehgbor lend him his loft while he was away. There is no Christian lending service so forget it.

Sounds like Christiania, without the hash and bikers.

Had the same thought this morning. #menswear will never be the same again.

Plus side is that PG mentioned he's thinking about more Junya + CDG now.

I can't even find T/M on the site, what is going on crazy.gif

I have a T/M shirt that I really like as well, so soft

I think T/M wins the award for least search-optimized name of a brand. It's also really not clear that it's pronounced "tim."

Edit: two random fashion thoughts. My wife saw the MMM tabi shoes at IF and said something along the lines of, "I don't care how well-made they are, those are just ugly." Also, just saw a woman headed to a fashion week event who was wearing a gossamer-thin dress and was obviously freezing. But at least she looked good.
