I'm glad junya is out of his farm theme. Indeed it was a bit tame but will sell for sure, lots of blazers look very nice. The junya racks from ss 2012 in my city are still unsold even at -60%... worried that fw 2012 will be the same and that the stores drop junya!! frown.gif

Dries Van Noten was SO good. I'm still amazed how relaxed and cool and beautiful the silhouettes were. Saving money already for it.

Hmmm...KVA was a snoozer to me. Seemed totally phoned in. Liked a lot of Ann D. My favorite collection from the label in a while. I also thought Gustavo Lins looked really good (good news for Platypus!), though I think it would have been stronger overall had a few of the early weaker looks been cut. Did not like BBS at all. That was a big disappointment. Waiting on Cdg...

Can't wait to see Damir and Miharayasuhiro tomorrow. They've put on some of my favorite shows in recent years.

I was actually disappointed with Ann D. Wasn't a fan of the fabric choices (from what I could tell) nor the use of pearlescent colors. Just didn't feel very Ann to me, but this is all just my first reaction...

Lets go CDGH+

The manufacturer accidentally sent Haider shipment to Ann and she decided to run with it.

Hey p4 where did you see the Boris and Gustavo shows? Can't find them.

Ann was so-so for me. Liked a few of the pants (from about look 19 down) and some of the jackets, but the colours looked really strange to me. It might have been the lighting though, but yeah...looked like a watered down Haider Ackermann. Funny how so many people are biting Ackermann's schtick. Who is in charge of Ann menswear again? It's a former Margiela guy right?

CdG's finally started!

That was the biggest drawback for me. I kinda liked the other fabrics though, at least used the way they were. It did seem out of character, but like I said, I wasn't crazy about the last few collections, so I was happy to see a change. I liked a lot of the coats.

Ivwri, they're right there on nowfashion but it takes forever to load right now (or maybe that's just me ?).





I'm mystified by the BBS collection...

People that dislike pearlescent colors, prepare to be shunned.

Camo at CdG too. I would like a pair of those polka dot shoes... A lot of these looks remind me of ss 09.

Thanks, having a look at BBS now. CdG so far is looking er...uhoh.gif

Dries Van Noten was SO good. I'm still amazed how relaxed and cool and beautiful the silhouettes were. Saving money already for it.

I went to Barney's here in Chicago 2 weeks ago and there were not a lot of pieces left. I went this past Monday and was surprised that there were more selections. I don't think they were keeping the merchandise in the stockroom and finally decided to display them out because the sale started like 3 weeks ago. I'm also thinking are these returned merchandise?

I bought a plaid engineer cap that was originally $230 and went on sale for $120. I thought it was still expensive and wasn't sure if I made a reasonable purchase but it's Junya and it's a hat so I can use it more often than a shirt which you can only wear less repeatedly. A few days after, I saw a same looking plaid engineer cap at Urban Outfitters on sale for $ 10. I even saw a bi color barn jacket which is identical to the piece de resistance of Junya's spring collection, but for a fraction of the cost. I bought the $ 10 Urban Outfitters one and returned the $120 sale price Junya

Is it justifiable to spend upwards 2 grand to look like you work at a barn? This doesn't make sense to me because who will and can afford to buy these clothes. I'm glad that Junya did more suiting separates for spring 2013 so the working professionals who can afford to buy his clothes can finally purchase something. Spring 2012's overalls and lumberjack styling that are cut for smaller frames are all lost merchandise. This means the lumberjack styling of the clothes don't appeal to sophisticated palletes of the style conscious who can afford them and for the average guy who will not spend $700 plaid shirt that fits too small and can purchase the same shirt that fits for a fraction of the cost. So for me, Junya as much as I admire his sensibilities in design is a little out of whack for me.

CdG presentation is kinda meh, but there are a lot of individual pieces I like / would wear / would like to see styled differently. That long white (boiled wool?) rider jacket is cool. And I like this coat a lot:

I guess they decided not to hoist up the stage truss to make the show at least somewhat entertaining. shog[1].gif

That's not entertaining if nobody falls, give me my money back
