You forgot the mid-20's engineer who thinks Pitchfork is 'edgy.'

anything you like, have liked, and ever will like is unequivocally trite and uninspired

was perusing the local market today. one of these vendors was selling some alpaca tweed yarn; looked really nice and was crazy soft. i was thinking of having a sweater knitted from it... until i saw the price, which was like $68 for 665 yards or something like that. and apparently it's not even enough material for one sweater. plain.gif

Depending on the weight that could be a little pricey or a great deal.

edit: To clarify, if you're paying $65 for a lace, fingering, or sport weight it better be some really excellent stuff or you're getting fucked. I'm guessing it's something mid-weight, either worsted or aran, in which case that price is about right for good alpaca. If it's bulky or super bulky that's a really good deal. Single ply yarn also tends to be a little more expensive, I think, but if it's had-spun that's likely what it is. I dunno if single ply is worth it for alpaca-- single ply yarns give great stitch definition, but I think that might be lost on something like alpaca or mohair..

I truly believe... moreso than ever.. that Helmut Lang is the greatest designer ever.

 

Greater than YSL himself at his apex shattering the confines of Couture with inspirations of streetwear

Greater than Yohji when he first arrived in Paris

Greater than Dior and his New Look

 

 

fathered all the cool designers most people today worship (Rick Owens, Raf Simons, Hedi Slimane, etc)

 

sorry just had to get that off my chest. Surely there is someone out there that agrees with me.

You can't really compare Helmut Lang to YSL or Dior since as far as I know neither of them ever did menswear, and I'm assuming that's the perspective you're looking at it from since Raf & Hedi never did women's.  And if you are in fact talking about womenswear I think McQueen had a much larger impact during the same time period..

 

Idk. Sipang?

 

*though I really like helmut lang too

So who's handled Margaret Howell in person? Stuff looks nice enough, but "quality" doesn't always translate well over not-so-detailed pictures.

Do you mean under their own//eponymous brands? Raf has definitely done womenswear at Jil, and to some degree of applause. Hedi will be doing womenswear from next season

Yeah they've both done some to pretty high praise but it was hardly influential enough to compare to (christian) dior, YSL, etc, and they're both known mostly for their menswear.

the quality is ok, i think retail on a lot of the pieces (mainline especially) is a little high, and i have a feeling that it's a lot cheaper in europe. i bought a pair of shorts and while i like the fit, the quality doesn't seem quite up to par -- really cheap plastic buttons for example.
