Fancier/more elaborate packaging just means more steps in between me and my shit. Suspension Point and zfactorie do it right - each item in a plastic bag and a layer of tissue paper around everything. Haven't figured out what to do with all the Zam garment bags I have piled up (almost every individual item comes with one), though.
I love garment bags. I have a bunch of bbs ones (in different sizes and weight resistance) that I´ve been using instead of backpacks.
I've been disappointed with MrPorter in 2013. I don't know if it's a random thing or what, but the buys do not seem as cool, the sizes are very infrequently XS now, and there seem to be almost too many brands. I don't need 400 makers of backpacks.
mr.porter made a great first impression upon me, and I only hoped they would improve but their offerings certainly dropped off. its a shame because I was so ready to continue buying some premium shit at steep discounts
Porter is just buying what they know will sell. They've done risky buys and it didn't work for them. They're a great company and are obviously smart in wanting to sell stuff at retail, which most things do. I can't tell you how many things I bought at retail that never made it past sale. Fashion has been getting pretty boring lately in general. It's like the film industry. Designers are catering to what the public likes or will buy. Rick Owens recently said he's bored of fashion and isn't going to reinvent the wheel anymore so he will stick to basic tweaks in his designs. When I went to Saint Laurent HQ everyone was talking about how Hedi wants to do less statement fashion and more everyday cali styles. Luxury versions of basic everyday wear because thats what people are wearing. If you go to fashion shows nowadays, everyone is wearing some sort of simple minimalist outfit with a pair of sneakers/nikes. Not quite sure what the deal is but I don't mind it.
