I claim to have no fashion expertise, but, I kind of like where this guy is coming from. Thoughts? 

I think justin is great...but i think he should be doing his own thing and leave brioni as it was. Looks like Brioni is trying to be the new Dior/SLP...

Tags don't match, but the last amazing Harrods I found was made by Lubiam.

I agree. I think he's an interesting dude, but I don't see how he fits at Brioni. He has no history in design, at all. If I'm not mistaken, he's been a long time buyer for some pretty tops boutiques, but no experience as a creative director either. Just seems like a bad move to me.

Also, his viewpoint clashes pretty hard with what I think Brioni is/should be.


No

this is such bullshit. good grief. terrible fit, and it will fail miserably. Just because he's getting press from GQ means nothing. Of ocurse people will be talking about it....doesnt make it right. Brioni is old school italian tailoring. Its like a shit bastard love child of SLP and Tom Ford. o'shea needs to stick to buying

You're not paranoid, they're fake.

Completely agree. If O'Shea wants to make this kind of clothing he should work for that kind of company. Also, chasing gangster money doesn't help Brioni's image when it's currently getting associated with Trump. I refuse to believe there's no money in making high-end Italian suits when Kiton is doing, AFAIK, just fine.

its a ploy to make a quick buck. celebrity "endorsements" outside of Gotti and Trump.... edgy and trendy. Varvatos, Dior, SLP.... Not saying i hate the styling, but its NOT brioni. Dont try to make it Brioni.
