COMME DES GARCONS HOMME PLUS FW2014
i think ive developed some kind of hair-in-face phobia now.
..but it was worth it
cut out details look to be interesting
the restraint in the collection is nice for a change. the lapel/vest scarf thing is pretty interesting... i like the holes too, referencing vintage cdg collections i believe?
Big, big 'meh' for me I'm afraid and the hair just looks like a desperate attempt to distract attention for the fact that CdG is not going anywhere interesting. You can feel it in the whole atmosphere in their main store in Tokyo too. It just has no energy right now.
i spot @fuuma
I don't keep track of cdh+, so I can't comment on how this collection compares to previous ones, but i'm really digging the cut of the jackets-- the length and the swooping lapels and that little bit of extra volume, etc. Most of the fabrics aren't really my thing(nah, i'm warming up to them), but with the cut of everything being so good, i came away happy.
I just scrolled back through those pics in search of him but no luck. Maybe you're talking about Olivier Zahm? The dude in the aviators
Yeah. He also mentioned he was wearing a pair of chelsea boots on SUFU so I'd though, 'maybe'
That's Olivier Zahm, I look nothing like him and am not in Paris right now, having left early jan.
CdG, Junya and Yohji are basically European brands, I'm not sure Japan is the right place to ascertain the level of their relevance and momentum.
I'd agree with the second sentence, but not the first, at least not with regard to Yohji in particular - that's getting rather close to a kind of cultural appropriation. All three have undoubtedly been involved in transforming European fashion and they all probably sell better in Europe than Japan, but that's not the same as being 'European brands'. But there's certainly an interesting discussion to be had about the 'where' of brands in an age of globalization...
