    since snow brought it up in the other thread, I really like everything in this Siki Im retrospective. I think a lot of the pre-2012 pieces really benefit from being shown again in this context. i'm really kinda kicking myself actually for not picking up some of his pants at the sample sale, though there wasn't much in my size left anyway, I guess. i like how clean, and relaxed, and simple his stuff looks here. it's definitely my favorite show of his (if you can pick a retrospective as a favorite collection :tounge: )

    now just hoping the actual SS13 collection is better than what we've seen...

    would have been a good opportunity to get something that you missed out on.

    Re: Siki Im

    The Barcelona presentation was indeed a retrospective. I don’t think any of the featured pieces were from SS13 (and if I’m mistaken they were basics / staples). However, there is definitely a link between the Barcelona retrospective and his approach to his next collection. For Spring-Summer 2013 Siki has used some of his favourite / classic pieces as a starting point to refine and update his silhouette. From the beginning many of the details (such as hidden and covered closures) have been present but, I feel, his recent plays on volume and lengths have really helped him craft his own identity. So, a lot of SS13 takes those pieces and refines / plays with the silhouette. There are certainly completely new styles as well though (such as the sarouel pants that have been posted as well as a few pieces with detachable layers). Some great linens and washed Japanese cottons / wools are used.



    Hey guys, I’ve been absent from the site for a bit, but I’m slowly starting to catch up again and I’ll have some more info / impressions / and pictures to share soon.

    Thanks, Platypus. Glad to hear the retrospective foreshadows what's to come. Is Suspension Point going to carry Siki Im? I found a stockist list and you were on there. I'd love to find another Siki stockist since I really like what he does.

    And I like this look a lot, especially the rings. Anyone know who does the jewelry?

    Indeed, Suspension Point will carry a selection of Siki Im FW12 so it'll be great to see everyone's reaction to the pieces.

    Bows: That casual blazer is a great piece (that's the wool-cotton I mentioned before). It's too bad samples are often too big for me (I'll still post a few pics eventually though). I believe the jewellery is the model's own. Where did you find the pictures (I can see they're from the Paris showroom)?

    Bows: Thanks. The shirt has an abstract skull / bone print in black and white. There are also nice details like the signature chest pocket, covered closure, MOP buttons, and such.

    Pick: Great! Lots of great stuff coming soon (including several new brands).

    Looking forward to your impressions platypus. Always a lot better to get first hand accounts, gives a lot more depth to the pieces shown on the runway. Also curious to see what brands you pick up for this season.

    Snow: I believe so. Think of it as a manifestation of how Helmut Lang (who often did similar things with his "backstage" shirts and stuff) has influenced Siki.

    yeah, I really like the way it looks. i typically don't like text on my clothing either, but this makes sense to me.

    I like Siki's signature triangle pocket (usually an interior blazer pocket detail). Looks cool against the graphic on that shirt.
