    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.

    Can't bring myself to like those boots. I mean, the whole thing is beautiful as a picture but...

    I don't really have anything informative to add, but wow, I like this stuff (well, besides the weird boots). the clothes look really substantial. i like that first robe/overcoat thing and that tan blazer/jacket.​

    it looks like socks over boots.

    but the rest is absolutely beautiful.
    substantial, like parker said, is a good way to describe it.

    i always like what i see from CL but never end up getting anything :eek:

    CL really strikes me as someone who should be a SF-darling.

    Yeah, his stuff looks amazing.
    With the current love for more volume and designers like Schneider (I could be wrong, but it feels like this is a trend here atm), CL should get a lot more attention here.

    I suspect it has to do with a high pricepoint and being hard to get your hands on?

    From the few first-hand experiences I've read about apparently the quality is quite disappointing as well? That and the lack of a back catalog of relatively affordable items on the second-hand market.

    Voilà.







    I'll post the more recent collections soon but for now here's some Lacoste spam.


    I like what he's done with Lacoste. The collections as a whole (especially the first few ones) are nothing extraordinary but I find the way he progessively built on the somewhat embryonic sportswear legacy pretty interesting. You can see that he brought some elements from his own line, the volumes, the kimono sleeves, the earth tones, the mao collars, the way he subverted the classic polo shirt by basically turning it into a kurta, etc. It always remains pretty restrained but it's there.

    For something that could've so easily turned into another preppy nightmare I think it's quite admirable.

    That FW09 collection is great. I really like his aesthetic (and the global influences), and I think when it's good it's REALLY good. But then there are always some missteps to me. Like this from SS13

    [​IMG]

    If the pants were so high up it would probably be cool, but as is it reads "old man" to me. I also think sometimes the pants taper too much. When he leaves a bit more volume at the bottom I tend to like it better. There are a few places in NYC that carry his stuff, like Opening Ceremony and Assembly, but any time I've gone in to look for some they never have anything. But I'd love to check out his stuff in person. Would definitely take some bottoms and one of his mao-collar jackets.

    I'm having this problem too... I wonder whether the cuts would work with low shoes?

    I need to feel the fabrics.

    Looks lovely.

    Actually you can't buy the whole suit for safety reasons, it's either the jacket or the trousers. Wearing the two together will likely result in sudden bouts of euphoria, aggressivity, rage and confusion (in that order), studies have shown. Mild to severe memory loss and foaming at the mouth has also been observed in several subjects following a 1hour wearing-session.
