This shop talk is now getting wierdly meta.
Not sure I want to be back on the East coast after my last experience there
85% sure I could make your drip campaign more effective.
PM me, for real. Or email me at styleforum dot net at gmail.
Weren't you living in Alabama or something? "East coast" isn't exactly what comes to mind when people think Alabama
"East Coast" starts in Maine and ends somewhere around DC" under that is "The South".
On a scale of 1 to Ugh, how disappointing was the Lemaire drop on Uniqlo.com? I get the whole "we need to have constant drops", but that's more for small shops. When your one of the world's largest retailer and you've been hyping something for six months, you'd better deliver.
So, I didn't care about that drop, one way or the other, but retailers like Uniqlo, Banana Republic, Old Navy, whatever, rely on constant turnover. Small shops with high quality, high priced product, tend to have many fewer drops. I feel that it's better to have more drops throughout the course of the season, especially online, though.
fuck the drop
The Case for Expensive Clothes
(Oh hi Marc, post again sometimes)
Oh hey Johnny what's up?
He's around. Or at least he answered a PM a couple of days ago. But yes, Mark, do post.
Hah! Was coming to see if anyone was talking about Paris shows. That's funny. But on that note: http://qz.com/516038/report-most-of...angladesh-still-dont-have-working-fire-exits/
Thought Junya was awesome. Yohji too. And Dries was amazing. The old-timers still rule.
Speaking of which, I just can't get past the feeling that Vetements is the worst hipster cliche imaginable. There are some things here and there that I like (I do think the jeans are great) but mostly I feel like it's a caricature. But people freakin love it. BoF said the guy is the new Margiela. Kinda scratching my head over here. Am I just not seeing it?
More like the old Margiela passed through the meat grinder : ) still, similarities are there on some superficial level and the connection is easily made so they'd be idiots not to milk it. Of course this is 2015 not 1990 so anticonformism is just another cog in the fashion machine and it's all very neatly and appealingly packaged and ready to be consumed in record time, but they're pretty transparent about that so, well, you can't really hold it against them.
I like the less polished fashion stuff from the 90s/00s and there are lots of very boring looking and aseptized shit out there now so this at least somewhat entertains, nothing particularly fresh about it though and some of it is rubbish (but they're good with their image).
It was in hype overdrive pretty much from the start so I'm sorta curious to see how long they last, I think there's a menswear collection in the works.
Anyone know how the Nonnative x OC boots fit? I'm hopping they run a size large.
This sums it up for me. I wanna believe it's really revolutionary because who doesn't want to be around for that? Except I just feel like it's rehashing old ideas with new club kids. There are pieces here and there that I like. Maybe I'll feel differently about a full men's collection. For now though the hype seems overblown.
Edit: in case anyone didn't recognize the first model in the show http://www.vogue.com/13355788/gosha-rubchinskiy-vetements-runway-show-paris
