Went into the (Harrods) SLP today to get a feel for the new stuff. I didn't think I would like the woven moon jacket but it's a really cool piece in person/stands out more than I thought it would. This is size 40/50 - they have sold every other size within a couple of days. Please someone tell me it's a terrible idea to buy into it and it's ridiculous looking
Also tried the 13K embroidered teddy, dang all that red glitter on the arm seams and the way it reflects the light makes you look like a rockstar haha.
Also tried the (washed) FW15 L17 and can see what @neonrider means about the quality of the leather.. incidentally @neonrider just to doubly confirm if I'm a size 50 in this (fairly thin feeling) L17 - would I go for the same size in the 'C' code SS16 version?
REALLY liked the raw hem flannel - I'm not sure if the other versions (bleached) are made of thinner cotton but the one i tried on is that same thicker cotton material used in my red/black FW15 flannel I have one. Ignore the sizing, they only had a size M for trying but I think I would go for L.
Also tried the 100% cotton repaired jeans just to get a feel for the sizing and cut of the jeans this season... as you can seen even these are SK there is something off about them ... I don't know if it's extra length of the cut but the bagginess around the knees and leg opening look a bit sloppy on me... luckily I had just bought some fw13 crash denim off a friend before coming into store so I'm pretty pleased on that score at least.
I don't know about anybody else (maybe Kieran) but I feel with the impending exit of Hedi I have to try and buy up as much as possible. Lol. Obviously I'm not made of money though so prob top of the list for me is:
Hedi 30 suede boots in the darker colour.
SS16 L17 in black to add to my L01.
Raw hem flannel.
Light washed/destroyed jeans (I want to try this seasons destroyed but I fear they will suffer the same cut problem) - can probably forever scan ebay/grailed/facebook group for earlier iterations on this point.
Plain silk tees.
