I think it's because her sizing is erratic and cos gives the cheaper alternative in easier to size fits

If she was reading that some people compare her work to COS I think she would even stop everything and start painting

Perhaps it's a matter of finance, maybe she just can't meet the orders of various buyers. Or the factories might be delaying her orders to take larger ones from better known brands. We'll never know unless she one day does an interview about the struggles of the early years. Or if Andy speaks about it.

Cos has definitely borrowed from designers including Wu. I remember they released pants very similar to her moto pants and to her laser cut blazer

Well, I'd guess most of their buyers are not the same people.

Also, you made that response to why stores like ssense and thecorner hadn't picked up Peir, which makes no sense at all.

I mean that as a reason why she is fairly small/underexposed. I think peir fits the mold of futuristic designers (in a shallow sense) and I think many of the sense and the corner cutler's would fail to appreciate the uniqueness of her items. Also I don't think the dichotomy is that great. You yourself own or owned cos and peir

Yeah, sure but I don't think I'm the typical Peir customer. Could be wrong.

 

Otherwise I agree, I don't see Peir Wu fitting that well into online stores like ssense or thecorner. Smaller boutiques, yes. Maybe also larger stores with a more focused aesthetic/brand selection.

Very promising. Nice to see versatile basics from her.

2nd and last look stand out.
Skater inspired? Got the same vibe from a lookbook I saw at another place.
