I had actually discussed the piece with J a couple of months ago just after he put up the Peir Wu buy and we had discussed her as a designer before that. I liked what I saw and thought it might be better to support both an upcoming - or in MS007's terms, a "young & hungry" - designer and a cool online store rather than picking up something YY again (particularly since most stores' buys this season were not very inspiring to be frank and I am really looking forward to SS13 YYPH with an eye on acquiring a few pieces). The design is also really cool and I like the "feel" of her brand for lack of a better term.

DD: Describe your latest collection?
Peir Wu: I envisioned a tribe of men on another planet not too different from ours, stripped of everything superfluous and much more focused about the way they lived...

I am a sucker for narratives like that inspiring collections shog[1].gif

Think I will definitely pick up some stuff from her SS13 season as well (even if it does not involve intergalactic frontiersmen smile.gif).

Nope, I wanna go in the next few yrs though, been to a lot of African countries already but the giant one has eluded me so far, I'll ideally wait until I go do a complete tour without problems but I'll see. I nearly had an SF meeting in Ghana with one of our esteemed members but I ended up not being able to go (was in Burkina Faso).

African beaches FTW:

Peir Wu: I'm in Montréal right now so J is coming to my place tonight with a few pieces, will try a Peir Wu jacket soon, stuff looks good.

Don't see why not biggrin.gif. My sister-in-law (who is really slim and much shorter than I am) tried it on today and while the sleeves were comically long it still hung perfectly from her shoulders, looked great in my opinion and I think she could have actually pulled it off with the right pants. I think you could definitely work it into your wardrobe and something about her approach to clothing makes me think of your aesthetic as well actually...

Fuuma would be really interested in your comments with regards to her stuff. I think she is one of the more recent designers to watch for sure. Also, whenever you plan to come to Nigeria definitely give me a shout and I should be able to take you to at least 4 or 5 states with no worries nod[1].gif.

He's been a friend for a few yrs and we actually visited some showrooms together when he started the shop, we're just having a few drinks, nothing like say a Barneys client getting a full collection home to try on.

out of curiosity, I was wondering where your actual waist line is? Are those long tees or do you sag your pants?
