    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.

    I don't think the Balenciafa stuff from the Vetements guy is out yet. Or is it? I forget which season he is launching.

    Yea, the runway show was a couple of weeks ago.

    http://www.vogue.com/fashion-shows/spring-2017-menswear/balenciaga/slideshow/collection

    Gosha also had some tailored looks at his Pitti show

    http://www.vogue.com/fashion-shows/spring-2017-menswear/gosha-rubchinskiy

    Don't know if this might signal anything about the return of tailored clothing for streetwear/ high fashion designers, but the Demna stuff looks unwearable.

    "System requirements: Sound Card."


    I get the argument that Margiela seemed nerdily into vintage finds and Vetements seems to just trawl the shallows of recent clothing culture but to an extent that's just vintage snobbery/valuing an authenticity I don't think vetements or its fans give a shit about. Vetements is post authenticity.

    I like this line, but I'm not sure what it means (sounds cool though).

    Like Vetements doesn't care about authenticity in the way circa-2000 hipsters cared about authenticity?

    That's probably true. So is the referencing of low brow stuff just ... I don't know ... a middle finger to the fashion industry then? And a wink to their fans? A way to create a meme?

    Or is it just following SLP, who referenced "low brow authencity" in a way that genuinely seemed more hipstery? As in "that cool brand did this, so let's do it too lolz."

    Built in apps are pretty good. Personally, I find it useful to signup for the Insider previews but I stay in the Slow ring. There is risk, but I find the tradeoff favorable for getting improvements, like Edge extensions.

    Gyazo and flux are probably my most used downloaded programs, hexchat is good if you ever chat in irc rooms

    Actually just thought about this more and don't think SLP cared about authenticity. I think you're right in that authenticity is dead, at least in the sense that nobody cares about provenance or nerdy details anymore.

    But then if that's dead and nobody cares about "high minded" design, maybe that O'Shea is right in that interview. Fashion is just about being "cool" at the moment. In the most boiled down, core sense of the word.

    Honestly seems a little depressing.

    There's a whole nexus of low-brow, high-fashion design that I still don't get -- Vetements, Gosha, SLP, and now Brioni (photos just came out tonight of their runway show and everyone looks like a cheeseball pimp, just as O'Shea promised). I guess it was somewhat interesting how streetwear was/ is influencing high fashion designers, but it's already starting to feel tired to me.

    It's almost like a ripped-off streetwear style without any of the 90s streetwear culture that made those clothes feel culturally compelling in the first place. But I guess that goes back to the "no one cares about authenticity" point again.

    I guess it's kind of an interesting subject on a superficial level, but as long as it doesn't move the needle on the labels I care about then Vetements et. al. are welcome do whatever fuckery they want and I'll just sit over here in my corner and continue to mostly ignore them.

    Vetements is trash, who cares? That's kinda the whole point/joke, right?

    But the thing that really pisses me off is the amount of assholes I saw wearing thrasher shirts with some tech runners and stupid raincoat this season in Paris. It's definitely up from last season.

    And last season everyone had the white with black logo version. This season everyone had the black with flame logo version. It's almost as if they think thrasher has seasonal deliveries.

    FUCKTARDS STAY AWAY FROM SKATEBOARDING PLEASE.
