High end clothing lines that don't seem to exist anymore

post #1 of 80
Thread Starter 
I remember two that I used to see, but are no longer around. Maybe others know what happened to them, or maybe somebody else wonders where some other lines have gone.

Mine:

Abla
Biella Collezione by G. Vasta

Any clues on these?

I see Biella Collezione turn up at Filene's Basement, from either Mitchells or Richard's, maybe even Louis Boston. Those are, as far as I can tell, the only sources for better items at New York Filene's. It seems like pretty nice stuff, reminds me a little of Boglioli.

I bought a Biella shirt/jacke thingie last year from Drinkwater's. Like it a lot. So I think they're still in business.

I got two G. Vasta suits at Filenes in the past few months. Beautiful suits. Someday I'll get around to posting photos.

Thierry Mugler. I've always loved his colorful pants. Sort of like high end Dickies.

Iammatt posted a link elsewhere on the forum that you may be interested in.

Anyone remember Robert Massimo Freda? He was a favorite of GQ back when it was more like Men's Vogue.

It's still around, I think; at least it was until very recently. It stopped in about 2003, then came back in 2005-2006 under a new designer and actually put out some very interesting stuff. Claude Montana, though, another 80's powerhouse, is very much gone. Miu Miu men's line, too, has disappeared, though I doubt anybody noticed or really cared all that much. EDIT: Just checked the Mugler webpage, it's still producing a men's collection.

What happened to Patrick Lavoix, who used to design Dior menswear? Or Dominique Morlotti?

Oddly, there's a store in Cleveland that always seems to have Biella.

I find it harder and harder to find much from Barbera.
