Artisanal Clothing and accessories discussion (MA+, CCP, Layer-0, Paul Harnden, Taichi Murakami, Boris Bidjan Saberi, etc...)

post #1 of 2513
Thread Starter 

This is the new catch all thread for the so called "artisanal" designers, many of whom are considered "goth ninja", have some vague relationship with arte povera, etc...

 

Designers include, but are not limited to:

MA+, CCP, Layer-0, Paui Harnden, Taichi Murakami, Boris Bidjan Saberi, Forme D'Expression.

 

Enjoy.

 

Cheers,

 

Fok.

 

Taichi Murakami horse leather jacket via Lift. Very similar in weight and texture to the Layer-0 horse - wouldn't be surprised if it's the same source. Or horses just feel similar, who knows, I'm not a zoologist
As usual, excellent patterns for Taichi and sleeves that are too long. Taichi!! Cut your sleeves shorter!! I like to use my hands!!!! Also partially lined with tyvek - I don't like any part of a leather jacket being unlined.

I don't know how the collar or placket are CCP-esque, but the shoulders and pockets are much closer to MA+ than CCP:

Well you asked smile.gif

I don't know how much more alike you think the jackets could be



Shoulders are both seam at the front raglan at the back
It's a jacket with a high collar, placket covering the zip
Pockets are square and jut out

What design feature do they not share?

Nobody in this thread seems too nasty about the subject, which is nice. I think it's interesting to know where designers take their influence. I sold my CCP to buy A1923 and my Paul to buy Bergfabel so the original isn't always best smile.gif

Edit: I'll to snap a pic of the Taichi stuff, the fit is also completely different from CCP.

At this point, I think we can all agree the artisan stuff is heavily influenced by CCP and Rick, especially in the arm length department. Fashion students in the future would probably mention them as sources of inspiration like how people name Helmut Lang and such as theirs.

Not a boot but there is a pretty sick Deepti piece is out there on the G site right now. Knit .925 silver sweater. I'd cop it if I were a size bigger and not a vampire.

NN, I wasn't sold on the jacket before, but this full body fit looks really good. It fits you perfectly!

 

Also I thought the Taichi leather looked like CCP back in a preview photo, but now with the better Lift photos I believe it's very different. Sure it's a high neck leather, but if you look at the non-leather version, it's very much 'Taichi' in the direction he's been going this whole time.

The leather clocks in at just over 3k, yeah. And I can't fit into any of the pants either. I really, really like a lot of Taichi stuff on the racks - the details, the fabrics, the designs really nail it it some areas, but sometimes the fit doesn't work for me.

No real measuring stick for me. Different leathers have their differing charms. Generally, though, I don't like the really thick leathers. My climate may have an influence on that.

Overall badassness I guess?

I have a Rick intarsia moto jacket and I threw it on yesterday with a tee and some red margiela flat front casual trousers and I'm going through my 487 pairs of shoes and boots and I ended up with two choices that worked: Light grey common projects, which worked fine and made it a fun, clean fit, but not as baller as it could have been...and my shiny navy Balenciaga side zip dress boots, which also worked fine and made it more baller, but a little more dressy than I wanted.

None of my baller boots (Carpes, Hashimotos, Guidis) worked like I wanted because they weren't sharp enough (literally or figuratively). Being a perfectionist, I realized that I needed a pair of elite black boots.

I want black leather, and not reversed. How many choices are there? Calf oil and horse oil? What are the distinguishing characteristics? I scuff my toes a good bit if that matters.

Thanks, and I totally agree about the Tornados but they are a little pointy for my taste. Maybe I need to look around for something else entirely. I want the dual zips for my wardrobe as a whole, and the Intarsia is about the only sleek fashion jacket that I own. But I'm second guessing whether or not the A1923s will work with the Intarsia.

Here's the jacket if anyone else wants to offer a suggestion.

I had not assumed everyone wanted a unisex harem pant or skirt.
