Bonus: Jil victim (with Prada sunglasses)
I liked the swanky 70s vibe at Lanvin. Not my cup 'o tea, but I can see it looking good on some people.
Spoiler: This with a Stetson Open Road would be killer.
Lanvin so far the best. I don't like the high waist trousers and shoes, but otherwise it's good. Simply 70's good.

Everything this year is so blah. Now is the fall/winter of our discontent.
And Thom saves the day.
Spoiler: Warning: Spoiler!
I recently saw the movie The Artist and was captivated by how a simple black & white silent film with a great message could leave a strong impact to me at least. And somehow the movie reminded me of the Jil Sander collection which I think is the best one.
I love it's purity with it's use of great fabrics and a classic silhouette, but updated with a "generous cut" which I think is the best way to showcase the luxurious leathers and cashmere. The collection also has a sense of "fun" like the graphic Intarsia of a whale and a dinosaur which are both primitive forms of life that existed in the beginning of the Earth and to me I think this sends a message of going back to basics or maybe starting in the beginning?
Whatever Raf's message is, I think this collection is "very now", it doesn't look retro nor futuristic which is I think is it's strength compared to the other collections
oh the fuck, all jackets of Thom Browne show features that kind of cut/shape. the FUCK?
Lanvin was interesting, though I really respect Tom Ford for his consistent devotion to the 70s. Personally, I'll probably try to pick up a piece here and there from Umit Benan - lots of good separates, and the military theme always works for me. Not a huge fan of the latest Ann Demeulemeester, but hey, she's been around a while, and not every season can be on point. As usual, like both the pieces and the styling of Dries van Noten. Also, if you've ever read his interviews, he refreshingly does not try to pack in some the pseudo-philosophical utterances, which is a big plus in my book. Plus, his construction and materials have stayed consistently high for years - which is saying a lot.
This so much. Dries isn't necessarily mind-blowingly exciting, but he does his thing exceedingly well.
Thought Lanvin was pretty good in parts.
Thom Browne getting ready for TDKR I see...
WTF happened at Thom Browne??? Dude, some jackets belonged to Mr. Hyde from "The League of extraordinary gentlemen".
I think the best way to describe it would be "Quasimodo Steez", amirite??
I don´t care for the Lanvin trousers at all. They pretty much ruined a lot of looks, but the rest, boots, shoes, coats and jackets were generally quite good.
