1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Latest Geoffrey B Small collection is beyond awesome, one of his strongest for years. Everyone, pay close attention to your favorite stockists, stories and legacy behind these garments are amazing.

    Some grainy footage was captured of the runway on instagram. I'm really anticipating more High res images

    I am pretty sure even the best of the images won't do it justice, it should be experienced in person. If I remember it correctly, you are in the UK, aren't you? Visit Hostem, they won't miss it for sure.

    I went to the show, very poetic as usual, An Acapella Singer in a black hood created the mood, clothes was brilliant as always, Geoffrey's strength is in his fabric selection and construction, i think he is at a point now in refining his technique where he is alone in the realm of what he does.

    I might be visiting him tomorrow but i dont know if i am allowed to take pictures, nor will i necessarily bother him with that.....I took a few snaps with my phone but they were terrible

    Several agencies and models were given runway shots they have posted on instagram recently,so I think these photos shouldn't be an issue. Photos of garments are a different thing but I do not know though. The choice of a showroom is so beautiful, glass roof makes it great.

    Actually I as with a girl who videoed a portion of it, I am sure she has a video of the finale, I might ask her if she can send it to me.

    These photos are iirc for the runway show order, some agencies got photos of an actual runway
    https://www.instagram.com/p/BPnHuX6AjB7/
    And there is more if you check the tag.
    But again I can't stress it enough how much of a difference does it makes in person experience versus the mere photos.
    Zamb can confirm it for sure, handling Geoffrey B Small garment yourself is second only to wearing it yourself, and thus collection proves this again.
    I am very sorry to be as extatic as I am but this is my first time to see and feel as many unique items at once.

    Seeing/handling them in person may well be worlds apart from photos, but those of us unlikely to even see them still appreciate pix!

    I lost my favorite pair of CCP boots in Paris in Friday that i have had for 10 Years.
    I have a Pair Geoffrey sneakers made from recycled Leather, Im happy I had taken them out of the lost carry on, I would be more traumatized to lose the sneakers than I am losing the boots


    With the Clothes as i said, no one can touch him now, he is alone at the top of the ladder.

    Specially woven fabrics, hand made buttonholes even on the shirts, specially paneled linings, the fabric treatments, he has found what works for him and elevated it to pure art in clothing form.

    there were some really nice Parka cuts this season that i liked..........

    Paris takes its bloody toll: my wife has lost her LUC hat in the metro on Wednesday and lost and found service is helpless. Really sorry about the boots.

    the whole damn think is entirely my fault, i hate being in a rush......
    We were stuck in the airport for 3 hours with some stupid bomb/ package scare, after leaving NYC stressed and tired, flying for 7 hours then in the airport for 3 i was tired as hell. i took the roissy buss to opera and fell asleep. when we got there i quickly hailed a cab, through the big suitcases in and jumped in the cab with my backpack.
    When i got to the showroom no carry on............

    I promised myself that for 2017 i am not going to stress myself. I am not.

    Guys, do think Paris is more umm... rush rush then London? I live in the UK and I've only ever been to London on two occasions. It was a world apart from the Midlands countryside!!! Everyone looks down or pass you. So bizarre [​IMG]

    I think someone should do a collection about that. Tokyo Would be another culprit I suspect

    Edit* completely off topic

    If you just search #geoffreybsmall on instagram, there are quite a few videos of the final runway walk, which gives you a very impressionistic sense of the collection. will have to contact your stockist for more showroom details

    Graham is such a wonderful person, he is the best to represent GBS in Canada I bet.
