    Nice.


    Prada/Miu Miu were pretty big on that kind of stuff around 1999-2000. The SS99 and FW99 collections have lots of sling bags/fanny packs/belts variations, big emphasis on functionality, uniform-likes somewhat repetitive collections with limited and drab color palettes (greys, greens, beiges) and lots of synthetic/tech fabrics and sportswear inspired elements (plastic buckles and drawcord toggles fastenings, some jackets even have slings like Acronym and RO). They're a great example of Prada's brand of minimalism and sit somewhere between Jil Sander and Helmut Lang collections of the time.

    Fuck yeah, I knew it had to be crossbody, looks good even for today, prada had some really cool stuff back then, it was one of my go-to labels pre-sf, I had a couple shoes from that era that I loved along with some miumiu moonsole lasercut slip-on leather boots, that video brings back lots of good memories, I used to lust after those minimalist/futuristic military inspired outfits back in the late 90's early 00's.

    I like several vests in here but couldn't pull off most, currently I only have 3 but wear them quite often and thinking of getting more, my favorite is a ts(s) quilted iridescent chambray, that thing looks good with just about everything in my current wardrobe, do wish it had more pockets though.

    What do you think about something like this,
    I like it, has nice pockets although could be bigger, but I can see myself getting a lot of use from it, especially if its not too warm, but unsure how the fabric would feel against bare skin, wondering if it would feel plasticky and therefore encourage neck sweat, (ideally I'd get the stealth jacket first but hard to find black in my size).

    Yeah I'm actually surprised at how current the Prada stuff looks, that goes for most minimalistically inclined collections I guess.

    I like the sisp scarf but I wish it had a tiny strap in the back so you could wear it open like in that pic and it wouldn't swing around when you move or bend forward, so less like a scarf more like a vest :D
    The fabric is probably pretty soft and silky (no idea though, just based on how other similar insulation pieces feel) so it should be alright, a merino insert would've been great though for that extra toastiness and sweat management.


    SISP also had that dorky hood + dickey with small zip pocket (not the hoodscarf thing) but I can't seem to find any pic.


    edit: oh yeah here it is

    Modular hood

    If I get it I was thinking of adding snaps at the beginning of the widened part and snap that to a black leather strap to keep it in place when worn as an outer since I dont like how it flaps wide like in the pic, but now that you mention it I could probably just wear it like that even when used under something else.

    Bless

    Demimoore Bag. A collaboration with Stand Up Comedy as part of its No. 46 Contemporary Remediation collection. Inspired by the stellar costume design in Adrian Lyne's Indecent Proposal (1993), specifically the iconic bag/pack worn by Demi Moore. It is only through the production of this piece that our near life-long, and thoroughly unhealthy obsession with the original, has ceased.

    ^i thought that bless was really cool when i first saw it

    still trying to figure out if it will look nice under coats/jackets, or covering it will defeat its purpose.

    it's Lemaire's toggled muffler, and in this instance pairs handsomely with the equally-absurd use of buttons on tripple-major "shirt collar" sneakers
