Are people talking about the controversial Rick Owens 2014 show anywhere on here?

depends on how much you want that particular one. then it's not about the cost to make it anymore, it's about how much you value the design or the label. and they seem to sell pretty well, so i guess plenty of people apparently don't think $2,500 is crazy. not me though. i think that shit's nuts

Yeah my question was "how deep into sale season will this last," not "please objectively define the value of this object to my personal life for me in dollar terms."

 

I'd wear more Rick if he didn't have absurd pricing across the board, I guess it sells though so good for him.

The show with the step dancers instead of models.

ok, good. would have a really tough time doing the latter without access to your bank accounts to build a financial profile and having you fill out a detailed questionnaire about your values and tastes. and even then it's just guess work, so I wouldn't bother going that route

Wasn't really controversial just progressive and brilliant. He essentially sonned everyone at PFW.

$500 is probably the lowest they'll go (on steep discount) for black bomber (MA-1) style jackets in odd sizes. A black turbo bomber in large sold on eBay for $575 recently but that's pretty uncommon. Usually they'll still go for $800+ on the secondhand market, IME. You'll be able to get a better deal on other colours (like the white or grey sheer/translucent bombers).

I remember someone bringing it up here, one member labeled Rick as the troll of fashion, another objected, exalting him as a genius, then another corrected the first by saying that Thom Browne is an even greater troll, and rest of the forum just moved on.

It's been really blowing up on some blogs and big fashion sites. People are saying its "tokenism" and another example of "white america" co-opting black culture.

fader did an interview with the choreographer of the rick show that I thought was kinda interesting.

"Here, the show’s choreographer LeeAnet Noble, also a dancer, singer and percussionist, sheds some light on Team Vicious’ five-month journey to the Paris runway and how 40 lady steppers changed the course of Paris Fashion Week."

Wasn't it a women's collection? This is a menswear forum that's probably why no one really cared. I thought it was a spoof video at first of something. Sipang posted video btw.

Saw one on Yoox for $1375 in a size 38. http://www.yoox.com/us/41375244TF/item?dept=men#sts=sr_men80&cod10=41375244TF&sizeId=3

Good price IMO would be like 600 or so though.
