    This, pretty much. A lot of really nice and wearable pieces, and they're really well styled for the lookbook or wherever those pics are from. Of course, it doesn't compare to older UC, especially womens.

    Very cool. Thanks for posting. He's an interesting guy. I have even more respect for him now. Some favorite excerpts:

    "Barneys bought Van Noten's menswear but sold it as womenswear."

    "Two years ago, he had village women in remote Uzbekistan weave fabric that was carried by mule for a day and a half to the local DHL office to be shipped to his studio in Antwerp."

    Edit: This makes me even more impatient for the Dries shirt I just picked up on Yoox.

    Haha. Don't worry. I only knew Dries (not even Ann D!) It's not like you run across pics of them all the time.

    ...and that's post #1,000.

    IDK I am no longer impressed by stuff like this. I guess if you want to discuss fashion as art then yeah, it's cool, but I'm more interested in discussing stuff that we can actually buy and wear. Nobody's going to walk around with a tree branch stuck to their torso.

    lol. it's quite easy to process without the styling touches though. Just clothes and the requisite fashunz head/hair treatments.

    The Japanese are quite good at this kind of stuff though, the weird human ikebana. I need to get a better understanding....
