Fashion shows in the late 80's early 90s used to have 150+ looks especially in womenswear. Its the era Cardin hails from. unfortunately he is stuck in that era not just in format but also in design

hoozah, that guy was drawing spirographs while the show was going on. I think it is this guy who is damn amazing. The collection is called circumsolar so I guess it tied in...somehow...
Damir really wasn't on my radar until I had a look at some of his stuff in person. The runway shows didn't really appeal to me much, except for f/w12, which of course was recent, but a lot of the individual pieces did once I saw them in real life. It's funny because I feel like the SZ crowd generally has the opposite reaction and they complain about his stuff not holding up in real life. But the individual pieces I've actually handled have all been really beautiful. As I mentioned elsewhere, I went looking for some Yohji recently and ended up buying a pair of Damir pants because the cut was so good and the fabric was really amazing in my opinion (that said, if they'd had Yohji pants in a style that suited me better I probably would've gone with Yohji's wool gabardine). But in a room full of Yohji and Lanvin and CdG, what I ended up taking home was Damir. I think he could be really great with some more refinement. Frankly I'm also happy to see him branching out a little as he did in this collection, even if it wasn't as coherent as it could've been.
Looked at more of Tillman Lauterbach. Very cool. Looks like Opening Ceremony carries his line, or at least has in the past. Think I'm going to check it out when I have a chance.
What pickpackpockpuck said on the thumbs up. It´s not available in that many online stores, and it is a tad more expensive than most brands. I agree with you, their collection is usually one of my favorites. They do a mean runway show and the quality of the clothing seems to be extremely good. I already made up my mind that I must get one of the knits/tops from this season. Loved them.
There was a profile in the New Yorker about him, here -

Sounds like many of the bags are really understated on the outside, but he does things like put fur or satin on the inside so you touch it every time you reach in, even though no one else can ever see it. And yeah, it's stupid expensive, but I don't think it's actually worse than JS.
