Well man I have heaps of Schneider, Jil, Raf by Jil, Raf, Margiela so I sorta know what Im talking about
Schneider fabrics are nice, but the designs are same same and the aesthetic is really different - Im talking about what you get for the price, the materials, the quality of construction etc
I would say they are in a similar area with a different target market. Geller's aesthetic and designer vision is something that is severely lacking at the moment. His use of color, his cuts, are spot on. His design elements are unique. If we were only paying for fabrics and 'quality' then its probably better to transfer to MC.
It was a long decision between Rick and Geller for me, dont really see many other lines with good vision ATM besides those two, Margiela is dead, Raf is pretty lame (up till SS13 preview the other day) and TBH I find alot of SZ brands to be really derivative (Poell / Rick or bust). Schneider is good, but he doesnt change (thats his point).
