was trying on some things at barneys , that purple robe is incredibly (and with an incredible retail price to go with it)
i have to say, that more subdued jungly print isn't as intense as i'd imagined, very much wearable for me.
the gray/black melange cardigan is also amazing, my friend has a similar one from last season, very loose weave in blue that may be even more oversized
the long shirt is a size 3, it's massive. i may even have been able to fit into the size 1 with plenty room to spare. the length makes it nearly impractical, longer than even the ss11 priest shirt. sorry the photo quality sucks (Click to show)
(last one was a Dries from womens section, huge and fuzzy and warm )
I am more impressed by your YYPH AW06 (?) pants btw, still thanks for sharing the info :)
My brief AW13 encounter a few weeks ago at Hervia.
Closer view (Click to show)
YYPH AW13 Look 35 Faux Fur Coat ( HQ-J19-903 ) - in grey ( true colour is the reflection off mirror ) - base 55/45 acrylic/polyester, pile 100% acrylic. Sz 3 kinda fits OK having to roll sleeves, would like to try sz 2 ( not available ) to compare. Double lined in grey cotton with 3B closure to notch lapels. Detachable collar with buttons and black leather insert. The silhouette is actually rather good and you feel cocooned in all this fluffiness. Not sure if it's too bling bling for this old fashioned fan but certainly a statement piece, with a OMG price to match ( £2900 ).
YYPH AW13 Look 4 Strap DB Coat ( HQ-J24-100 ) - in black 100 wool gabardine, the safe choice. Size 3 oversized fit ( only worn over a Tee ), again like to compare with a sz 2. 6B DB closure, peak lapels, 2 additional side straps with 10 buttons each ( enable the coat to be worn open ), the sleeves have 2 working buttons + another 6 buttons up the arm, So total at least 40 buttons on this piece, OTT construction, but nice. £2030
YYPH AW13 Shawl Collar Coat - in black, forgot the code, 90/10 wool/nylon, very warm but very big in size 3. 4B DB closure with optional high collar finish £2100
YYPH AW13 Look 36 Bow Print LS Shirt - ( HQ-B09-806 ) - in black 83/17 wool/nylon, very soft almost sheer fabric. Size 3 fits nicely, big buttoned down collar with dramatic bow ribbon print. Far superior than the ( cheaper ) white cotton iteration in my view.
Also tried on the Look 3 ( Regulation ) blazer in beige cotton ( blend ), size 2 fits true to size, not keen on the silhouette, colour and fabric so sorry no picture.
All in all, AW13 looks like business as usual in terms of pricing, nothing ( in Hervia ) I would like to buy as target pieces.....
I did buy ( and got a cheeky discount ) Mrs Lee these as her early 10th Wedding Anniversary present
Adidas Originals Y's Super Position - based on the Adidas Superstar. In black leather with contrast white, smooth leather toebox and tongue, black laces. The 3 stripes are interpreted in zig zig grey cotton threads which are meant to be cut clear of the ground by the wearer to create an individual distressed look. Flat, waxed grey spare laces are also supplied to further vary the look. Cool sneakers, seem to be aimed at men ( notice the male logo on shoebox, if it's unisex there should be both sexes shown ) but Y's is nowadays women's only? A puzzle.
