Went down to Nepenthes yesterday to pick up the R&T jacket. Here's a pic. Seems like Daiki designs 100% of R&T... Abdul said that the concept behind the label is similar to the way CdG Shirt operates in relation to CdG Homme. More playful fabrics, etc. I'd say more affordable too. Got to take a look at the EG Fall 2011 lookbook.... It's yet another amazing and fairly original collection. There are really opposite extremes... some true workwear (lots of super puffy down vests) and some very romantic and elegant stuff (huge prince-of-wales-alike buttoned shawls, patterned knitted wool hooded dickies, an apron -yes, an apron- to put on top of a suit, a black velvet embroidered Bedford -similar to this season's- but thicker). Very austere, but everything looks very wearable compared to previous FW collections. I'm a fan.
