Another vote for JJVE.

I have two pieces at the moment and the attention to detail and construction are all pretty top notch. Very considered.

I am also a huge fan of his approach to making collections. One collection a year, with smaller capsule projects scattered in-between inspiration, and I guess finances, allowing.

Charlie Porter posted his backstage impressions and photos from the Comme showroom. Loads of good pics and insights into the Comme, Junya, CdG SHIRT and Gosha Rubchinskiy shows.

Always liked his behind-the-scenes posts like this and his enthusiasm is very infectious.

JJvE - #3 is still the best, by far, but #5 is much better than #4 IMO.


The proportions of the pants and shorts are a lot more wearable - the hats are good, and the crazy slouchy pieces retain a bit more form than some of the older pieces from #4.

There's a lot of great individual pieces that damir put out this season. Not many full looks. Maybe it's just a styling problem?

Enjoyed jjve, lemaire and y3.
Agree with Ivwri, I appreciate jan jans design approach

all of this shit is a joke which is what mens fashion has become.

basics and shit like Eg at least stand the test of time.

I visually appreciate a lot of styles more and more even as my desire to actually purchase and wear them has decreased shog[1].gif

everywhere. aside from silent, his stuff sells even worse than raf simons

at least on Howard street it seems like every other tall skinny asian dude and every third swagd out fuccboi is wearing raf simons. probably not a good indicator for the rest of the world. rarely see damir in the wild.

where would i even find a designer's sales figures? a simple google search gives me nuffin
post #1123 of 1124
i think when most people say stuff here they're going by what moves and what sits on the sale rack at 60, 70 80 off etc...

Good point BamChair... I've been searching for sales figures for menswear-only designers in particular (Raf Simons or Van Assche come to my mind), but can't find nuthin'...

I'm interested in knowing how much "confidential" brands (as opposed to "mainstream" brands as Prada, Gucci,Diesel etc...) performs sales-wise... Maybe the case is different here in Europe, but even a brand as Raf Simons or Damir / Silent is quite confidential here. Besides some fashion aware niches in Paris (hello Fuuma!), the average french fashion buyer / consumer never heard of them...

i'm really curious to know their marketing / business / marketing plan (how many items produced, sales figures, profits, and how many managed to "survive" for that long, i.e Raf ...).

Does anybody have some sort of article or website link about such info?
