    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.

    just wondering, what were your feelings on f/w12? that was actually the collection that made me take notice of him. before that I kinda lumped him in with most of the other SZ-approved brands (that wasn't very smart of me but i've let go of that bias). you didn't like the tailoring, right? it was the mix of tailoring on top with the voluminous pants that I liked. and I liked the prints a lot as well (like this blazer http://www.antonioli.eu/products/18727-damir-doma-blazer?gen=men). i also thought he showed a few distinctive "moods" or whatever you want to call it but the collection overall was still very coherent.

    i love that blazer ! the print is so nice , my only concern is the material. i imagine it being plush soft and thick wool but it's a blend so who knows how the linen will feel. i like his tailoring too, and as you say the mix that he's done is actually quite par for course -- he's always done opposites, either slimming the tops with wide bottoms or the inverse, or of course the egg silhouette. it just feels like he's going for commercial success esp when you factor in the diffusion line made even more cheaply that rakes in the cash (this isn't necessarily bad, v. good business sense actually)

    actually, funny you mention silent because that was the other reason I didn't pay much attention to him. I never really liked the line. seemed like generic goth-ninja-industrial-whatever stuff. he does seem to be trying to expand his business as much as he's trying to put out good design. he said in that interview that CdG was his business role model, but he might've been better off following the Driesian path instead. :happy:

    I always felt that Silent (a tthe beginning at least) was more or less a continuation of the first few DD collections design-wise, and a way for Doma to get more commercial experimental with his mainline


    Iirc S/S 2010 was the red collection; ok he used colors before but you get what I'm saying, the comparisons with Ackermann and Dries etc...

    take home message : replicate CDG business model but in compressed time format, Silent is equivalent to H&M/Zara

    I've heard he's wearing Nikes, that should tell you something. This is a man with a plan.

    Wow, I've never heard of lost and found before but aside from the tees, (majority of) the pants, and that pair of cockroach like sandleshoes, I think that collection is pretty solid :smarmy: (that's a lot of exceptions haha)

    this is kind of cool, although something feels off about it -- I think the flap needs to begin where the collar is and be made of drapier shit

    fabrics are cool - wtf is this??

    Pretty sweet stuff. Color choices are really romantic. It seems that she does the loose and easy look much "better" for women, perhaps it looks better hanging off a woman's body?

    Also Re: Paper jacket FW11 - sounds really cool even though i'd hate for my pieces to start tearing and ripping after a while. Paris is too far away :(

    Worked out how to scrape ~90% of the high-res images of all the SS2013 and AW2012 collections (Mens, RTW, and Couture) from Vogue. PM me if you want access/the zip file

    Edit: Turns out it's ~7.5GB w/o pre-Fall and Resort collections. Any suggestions other than providing a torrent?

    That's the best one of the bunch. Interesting to see how much of this collection was repeated in the men's collection. The red blazer, the satin-y striped fabric (with egg silhouette), the grey/beige striped sleeves, the black/white speckled shirt, the satin-y blue fabric.

    dries was my favorite collection this season (but i only liked the first half)
    especially the tops with the quilted parts and velcro were cool
    i also liked the sandals and some of the pants
    i will definetely buy 3-4 items next summer[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
