    I got the Raf horsehair boots, pretty sure I'm gonna keep em. They're dressier than I expected; they essentially look like a shiny dress shoe with an interesting texture but they look ok with jeans still, IMO.

    Does anyone know if you should waterproof horsehair?

    dunno if this might be relevant but OC has a tutorial on cleaning ponyhair shoes/bags etc

    just found out my workplace has institutional access to Vogue Archive, so here're all the jil sander ads in American Vogue (1985-2011) that show up in my search, for those interested. quick summary of how the brand has evolved over the years


    Pre-Raf (1985 - 2006; jil / vukmirovic / in-house design team?)

    Thanks for sharing! Really interesting to trace the development of the brand through those ads. I love the campaigns that Raf oversees.

    Sweet Jesus. How big can you get the images, I have been looking for old campaign pics too frame on my wall. Specifically balenciaga and Lanvin things.

    Yeah but if it's a shitty resolution it's not going to look good. Maybe if you get CSI involved.

    nice jacket but i don't think it suits you from what i've seen in your pictures. i always picture you in a rider style jacket.

    I wish I could tell which campaigns are under Vukmirovic / design team as opposed to jil her own, raf is unmistakable though :alien:


    not very big i guess (think 1/2 the physical size), but may be enough for small posters :( in any case here's some 50s balenciaga for ya

    i think i have some magazine shoots saved somewhere, will post if i find them.



    also style.com has some video summaries/analysis of raf ss12 and fw12 (ht: Eliminator twitter) definitely watch in HD (720p), the ss12 video has some nice shots of the chain derbies and the leather vests, also has interviews with cathy horyn etc.
