    Thats about never though. Me being above Barneys Madison is like, birthday only occasion and thats solely for a meal at Jean George. Unless I'm in Harlem swagging on some BBQ. I'm downtown regularly though in EV and soho.

    Good news is it'll only be one week. swag.

    I read this as the "mason-dixon" line and it still makes sense.

    What do people think about clavin klein? I know synth has that crazy jacket from him.

    This F/W 11 was pretty dope. You really have to see it in person, the fabrics are crazy. I quite liked the show too. You should watch the video if you can.

    I'm going to go to New York maybe this summer, if my friends aren't such pussies. I will meet up with you and have a pull up competition. Let's hit Coney Island or some shit Warriors style.

    I'll do white tee, diors, paul smiths and that's pretty much it. maybe night time I'll throw on a lightweight margiela or dior knit if it's chilly.

    damnnn, here in t-dot it gets a little nippy at night. nothing bad, just you can survive in a knit or a tee. you won't be too hot or too cold with either respectively.

    I heard an interesting interview with Simon Doonan on NPR a little while back, and someone asked him about designers and the economy, particularly, whether he felt that collections were affected by the recessionary times. He said "No, but the buying gets more conservative, because buyers think that people are less likely to splurge on crazy things" and he went on to say that he didn't know whether or not this was the case or not. So, essentially, he was saying that buyers' perceptions, whether accurate or not, dictate, to a large degree, what is available - not the designer's, not the end customer's.

    This was the most incisive bit of fashion analysis I've heard in a while.

    I wish that more fashion commentators were as smart as Doonan.


    Having seen American buyers make their buys right after Japanese buyers (say Barneys jp vs Barneys NYC) I can coinfirm they have a huge influence on what gets worn/used for shoots/how a designer is perceived in a city.

    jkissi is just wayyyy overstyled. like from an editorial standpoint
    nah, I think he cruises the line well.

    i liked what I seen of the Fall 10/11 collection when I was in the store last year. The Rubber topcoat was sick to dick. Suits and leathers were cool too.
