1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    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.

    Stephen Sprouse

    Trained under the expert hand of Halston, Sprouse transformed into a cultural icon during the maelstrom of the Reagan era by mixing “uptown sophistication in clothing with a downtown punk and pop sensibility.” Shrewdly noting that in our pop-culture obsessed society where MTV ruled all trends are consumed and tossed at a quicker rate, we’re all due for reinvention much more frequently than before. He tossed psychedelic, love-child references from the 1960s and 1970s into his early collections, while his later work in the 1990s and 2000s (including collaborations with Target and Louis Vuitton) smacked of the neon-hued, broad-shouldered eighties.

    I've been looking at a lot of his past collections recenlty and am really liking Dries more and more. Maybe because much of his stuff is rooted in classic menswear and suiting. I guess until someone (ahem, sipang) starts a dedicated thread, I'll put this here. Autumn/Winter 1999-2000. Or what I call Zombie University. Don't know what the official creative brief was. There are some typical Dries touches like belted jackets and wide leg pants, but also some pretty cool cutaway military jackets, bathrobes, blanket cape wraps and arm warmers. There are even some King Julian length sleeves. Set to some Bach cello suite, I think.

    needed an excuse to resurrect this thread and thought this collage was kinda cool showing the athletic wear (literally sportswear) influences in FW13. from here: http://garmentozine.com/

    Love that stuff P4.
    Can see myself wearing pieces from every look there.

    Also, you were one of the few who appreciated Damir FW13, right? I understand the disappointment some guys feel about the collection, but there's a couple of looks and pieces I really like and could integrate in my wardrobe for once.

    FW13 isn't one of my favorite Damir collections, but I don't think it's terrible either. I think the biggest problem with it is that it has Damir's name attached, so people expected one thing and got another. I do really like that green/gold-ish tech fabric in the top-middle pic. There was a Jil jacket made out of something similar a while back that I really liked. But it's not very "Damir," you know?

    P4, you need to pick up an issue of Garmento and post a review

    If you're serious and really want to know what it's like I can probably find a copy. Is it not available where you are? I've never looked at the printed version. Just the site. I wonder if it's a cheaper version of Encens (thinner, no hard cover, etc). I'll see if I can find one.

    No I can order it for €5 or so, I'm just lazy. It kinda looks a bit fanzine-like from what I saw, still intrigued.

    Also a plug for my magazine thread that never took off.
