Maybe it's just me, but I feel that the problem with choosing surreal names is that it often brings to mind an avant-garde and experimental aesthetic in the vein of Henrik Vibskov and CdG, as well as a more artisanal approach to garment-making like Carol Christian Poell, which sounds pretty cool but doesn't seem like the direction Drew would like to take the brand.

Actually, I really like Murakami - between what the guy has written and the adult life I lead, I feel like I'm living in a murakami, but the clothes, I'd like them to go someplace else. What I'd like to make this fall clothes-wise is still a gallery of animal products combined with other materials, keeping the tailored shapes I like - think the sheer austerity of materials like Korean buddhist monk-made hand-loomed 15" wide grey wools with flourishes of luxury and romanticism, like lambskin and furs, a bit of silk and sheen, plus maybe a bit of technical fabric, all incorporated in more common contemporary forms - that is the direction I am going, and probably will continue in.
Sounds awesome. There'll still be an MTM option right?
