I was not going to let you get to them first!
@wigglr thanks. Just logged back in SF after a few days
Squeezed it in just in time! Frank Leder is up, and we couldn't be happier with this seasons selection.
As before, the fabrics are just incredible, and all of them typically have some sort of pedigree or history behind them, however minor it might be. Frank is really committed to sourcing things locally and supporting the small mills and factories around him. When I met with him in Japan we talked about this, and he said there are a handful of factories there producing fabrics only for him at this point, and he is the only reason they're still around. I realize the story is only a small part of it, but it's a quite compelling addition when the fabrics really are this unique.
A little history on this particular collection as well, in the words of Frank himself:
Here are photos I snapped of said book when I went to the showroom:
And for fun, a handful of photos from the lookbook showcasing items, or variations of items or fabrics we picked up:
