I really like the cuts of the pants. Like you said, slim yet leisurely. And he has a great range while still having a consistent image. I'd happily wear all of those.

Petrov looks nice, those knits look good. Wouldn't mind owning the colorblock one.

Quite possibly...

Also, I'm going through the various lookbooks I have left over to see what hasn't been posted yet (though most of it has).

Speaking personally, Peir Wu is one of my absolute favorite recent discoveries. There have been several (semi) recent discussions about how futurism can be done without being overwrought or unwearable / what will be next in menswear and this is an example of what I think the answer is. The silhouettes and details are cleverly tweaked, minimalist (almost stark), and thoughtfully executed. The materials and techniques are innovative, tech-y, and used / combined in interesting ways. For example, the take on the tailored jacket has a slim body made of power mesh (think like a lighter neoprene) with slightly elongated tech knit-rib sleeves. There are no lapels, the closure is a hidden snap and zip combo, and there is also a hidden back pocket. It is different while still being easy to integrate into a wardrobe.

How long do you think it will be before people are sick of minimalism?

post #893 of 903
Minimalism has been around for over half a century, maybe even longer if you include early modernism

+ it taps into values/ideals that are tied to industrialism itself (purity, simplicity, yada yada)

I'd count on it sticking around for a while longer

Yeah but it wasn't in vogue in the '80's

post #895 of 903
Dude no way

1. The 80s is exactly when the famous japanese minimalists (yohji, et al) kicked off their careers
2. And it's when Helmut Lang began his
3. The male suit itself is an exercise in minimalism. It's the result of decades (perhaps even centuries!) of reducing male clothing to pure simple shapes. even if you can argue that the strict minimalist movements taking place in Europe and Japan didn't have an effect on the "general populace," the vast majority of male dress clothing is the product of minimalist movements of the past

Not trying to seriously disagree, I just think your post fairly cries out for this response.

But Helmut Lang, Yohji and CDG were all a backlash to the stuff that was popular at the time.  Right?  Also think about the kind of suits that were popular

Suits with insane patterns don't disprove my argument
