Yeah, I saw that. I'm pretty lukewarm about it.
1. Uses a different weave for the body and sleeve lining, which is inelegant to begin with, and also uses pure cotton for the latter. I'm not as anti-lining as most people on leather jackets, but cotton in general just gets natty the more you wear it, especially because it's in the one part most exposed to everything. Leather should be bought to age gracefully and cotton lining rarely does. The previous season used a wool/cupra blend instead that is almost starchy like calligraphy paper and is far superior at shrugging off dirt and sweat.
2. The F/W season broke with typical Devoa sizing and used boxier fits for everything except the tailored pieces and leather jackets. 1 was a 46, etc. This S/S jacket is using the new sizing this time. It killed a lot of the lineup for me. I really wish Daisuke would knock it off.
3. It's the only leather this season. Sad.
I can imagine someone actually starting to read that when the jacket comes off as a prelude to sex, and refusing to continue.
It's actually kind of funny how much of the Japanese new atelier paradigm gobbledegook resembles Proust run through Google translate and back again, which in turn resembles the average SZ post.
