I have no idea.  That's sort of the point, you have to be in a certain place at a certain time and I wasn't a teenager in the early '90's.  I like Sipang's explanation though.

btw, Sipang, I enjoyed the Lacoste retrospective! I liked that Lemaire wove in bits of the heritage without going overboard or straight up retro. (though one of those original wool tennis jackets would be cool). I don't really feel qualified to make too many comments in this thread, because I'm more of a fashion dabbler, but I do like readin' the high-fashun discushun. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


I'm still kinda obsessed with Dries's spring 2010 collection. Probably the best mixing of prints I've seen. Looks so good! I saw a pair of the crazy print pants from FW12 recently and was surprised at how they looked in real life. They were basically printed jeans. The colors weren't as vibrant as I expected. Might have been just some variant that wasn't on the runway but got bought anyway.

I think 99% of us are fashion dabblers. I don't know what the hell I'm talking about, but it doesn't stop me from talking! (Well, here anyway. If there were any consequence to what I said, like if I were talking out my ass at work or something, I would just keep quiet. shog[1].gif Sorry everyone.)

I liked the Lacoste stuff too, though not as much as Lemaire's own line, which is why I didn't say anything.

edit: oh, favorite New Order song is Ceremony, which is basically right at the transition period from Joy Division to New Order. Best of both worlds.

that dries suit is so stunning.

Yeah as far as I'm concerned, Dries spring 10 is untouchable when it comes to prints and pattern mixing, I wish I could find those highres details pics again

Everyone that reads this thread is qualified enough to comment.

I heard about the term "high fashion" several time when hanging around SF. But I don't really understand what do it mean? Is that something similar to Haute Couture?????

Nice. Thanks for those Dries2010 pics, sipang. A few more from that group

It has so [edit] no specific definition but in general refers to more 'avant garde' designers (though typically not ones that SZ likes such as LeU, in Aisce, CCP, etc.). Not typically referring to haute couture though. That doesn't really exist for men.

I think generally it's stuff that's walked on runways; there's a bit of a grey area with designers like Ervell that do runway shows but maybe shouldn't, but it's a pretty good rule of thumb.

"Runway & Designer " would probably be less confusing, high fashion is technically Haute Couture which is seldom talked about here, although I guess it's a way to demarcate from the meaningless blob that the term "fashion" as come to evoke (aka we don't talk about #menswear)


Doesn't really matter though.
