Can't you see the genius ? You'll eat your words soon enough, fool.

Viktor & Rolf have been funding their line via perfume sales for years, it's as valid a strategy as any.

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 designfrown.gif

I guess people had longer attention spans before the interweb.

They would go on for 2 hrs and stuff. They even had interludes and breaks in between (lol)

of course, when you charge $234083430821435 for one glove, all you need is a single item to sell to cover the costs of your entire collection

why is the guy laying on the walk way?

I thought it was just me with Sruli Recht. I actually like the 'impression' I get when I see his stuff but it always looks like it was cut to fit on an alien. I guess this is true avant garde happy.gif. That Russian Orthodox looking guy looks badass though.

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...

aint nothin but a yohji party

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.

Bottega Veneta is fucking excellent.  How come that label gets no love on SF?  It's not much more expensive than MMM, Jil Sander, etc etc.

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 -

Tomas Maier, the head designer of the Italian fashion label Bottega Veneta, is one of those people who wants to erase every fault in their range of sight. Maier, who grew up in the Black Forest in Germany, is fifty-three, and he has the aspect of a hipster monk. At Bottega Veneta, Maier designs men’s and women’s ready-to-wear clothing, along with housewares, furniture, watches, porcelain, and jewelry. But it is his leather accessories—bags, shoes, wallets—that are the label’s signature, and its best-selling items. At certain moments, Maier recalls characters in the novels of Kingsley Amis, those finely tuned instruments of outrage who find catharsis in cataloguing all the human failures around them. His goal as a designer is to strip away all unnecessary parts until a dress or a shirt or a bag has been reduced to its functional essence. When Maier took over Bottega Veneta, in June, 2001, the fashion world was ruled by bling-laden excess, symbolized by the phenomenon of the It Bag. Maier’s first act upon taking over at Bottega Veneta was to design a bag that looked, in the context of the times, like a rebuke: a woven leather sack with two handles. With no logos, no hardware, no adornments, the bag, which Maier called a Cabat, has since become one of the label’s top-selling items. Maier has increased Bottega Veneta’s sales eight hundred per cent in the past nine years, bringing the company out of near-bankruptcy. His strenuous refusal to overmarket the bag is itself a kind of marketing—the type that appeals to a customer who disdains the easy status recognition that comes from a conspicuous label.

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.

Understandable. Have to get work somehow as an artist.

Yeah but BV is an accessory brand with a clothing line, not the same as Jil et al. (from a fashion pov obviously).
