the aesthetic has never been like ccp (except maybe overlock type stitching ...) which is less about the wearer and more about the clothes as just objects -- great to handle, horrible to wear for me. NCB was pretty nice in the beginning, very rustic feel to it. there were exaggerated flares on shirts and jackets, rough textured material, wools or linens that lent themselves nicely to the pieces, like farmer jackets that were some of the best ones he made. earth tones, muted colors, worn-in feeling fabrics.
it used to be carried at atelier now relegated to bargain bin on yoox...inconsistent, to say the leaset. stopped paying attention few seasons back but I suppose it's same stuff diff name. I have one piece left, a long lined coat in rough linen with thin lapes that can button up all the way to the top, cut wider at the bottom.
