My friend just sent me an ecstatic e-mail that she won an eBay auction that ended yesterday for 'the' fringe shirt (as she put it) from the Reflexion collection 2002.
I'm not as big an expert on Slimane's earlier works as much as I am a fan although I do have high quality images of this shirt for nostalgic viewing when I need a pictorial high.
I pulled up the ended auction an hour ago and have a couple of concerns:
- There's a blurry close-up of the Dior tag. I would have requested a clear one. From the good photos I have the lettering on this shirt is embossed and not stitched.
- Also, the size tag is sewn next to the care tag where it should be although it is silver with a black 40. Again, all the photos I have and a fringe polo from 2HH in my own collection have those colors for the size tag inverted black with silver numbers/letters.
When it arrives on Wednesday I'm going to have her send a photo of the reference number so I can verify that.
Until then, Does anyone have any expertise on the early tag details for this piece? I'd imagine it's probably time consuming to fake all those pleats. All in, I just want her to be ready to handle any possibility it's not 100% authentic.
Thanks for bearing with my long winded fingers and any help or replies.
