    I think Margiela looks okay. Great tailoring, nice color palette, some arisanal and trompe l'oeil garments, relaxed fits. This is basically what I expect from MMM.

    I like the tuxedo drawstring pants and the grey/beige cotton suits worn with printed tshirts. The trompe l'oeil trench coat is nice too.

    Dont like the metallic stuff and the shoes.

    Dior Homme was terrible. The lapels were barf worthy

    I liked DH more than I have lately because at least some of Dior's former sharp tailoring seemed to be making a comeback amongst the drapey shit KVA introduced. I think the razor-thin/'vestigial' lapels look fine on the models, but I couldn't pull them off myself / in real-world applicability I guess I agree with Tirailleur. The dark blue leather shoes with red laces looked disgusting.

    Why does Acne have a runway show? I hope they 'opened for' somebody else [ :laugh: ] because that was the least substantial thing I have ever seen: 21 looks, vertical stripes and a denim waistcoat -- it has already vanished entirely from my mind.

    I semi-unexpectedly saw a few things I'd consider from BoO. They surely warranted a runway more than Acne did.

    ^^ Meh I've seen stuff way shittier than Acne so why not ?


    DH reminds me of Ervell, KVA should've stuck to looser stuff for better or for worse, at least keep it somewhat consistent.

    Inexplicably, I saw a Bernhard Wilhelm look I kind of liked. What is happening to me? :fu:

    DH was boring. I thought the shoes were too bulky (not as bad close up), and the leather jackets were a letdown.

    Lanvin looks quite good from twitter photos. High waisted pants with simple t-shirts. Will check it out as soon as I reach my laptop.

    Idk, not really feeling Lanvin new direction. Got some serious Raf circa '05 vibes from the last two collections though...

    Cuz there aren't enough skulls in menswear between McQueen, Raf, CdG, and the odd RLPL cuff links.

    Considering it's been part of his whole thing since the beginning I don't see the problem, it's probably the least gimmicky too compared to all the examples you cited

    The problem is what you've been pointing out for weeks (months?), this guy is trying to create buzz instead of clothes. All anybody has seen is just skulls, and menswear is already oversaturated with skulls. I'm not accusing him of ripping anybody off -- the weird maverick bent is the one thing he's got going for him -- but the longer this goes on, the less likely it is ever going to escape its current alchemy of boredom and masturbation.
