Went to Barneys today because I had a store credit to use up. I got to see the capsule collection by Nicolas Ghesquiere of Balenciaga. Yes, he has finally produced his promised mens line. Unfortunately, though, I was very unimpressed. Overpriced clothing that you could find at K-mart. I saw denim jackets, black wool sweaters, some white shirts, some okay pants....and that's about all I can remember. It was very underwhelming and unmemorable. Maybe I'm missing something? Has anyone else seen it? On the contrary, I have found another favorite line--Marzotto Lab. For those of you who don't know, Marzotto is an old textile firm like Zegna that manufactures clothing for a lot of the leading labels. Now, they've started making their own clothing. Their stuff is great; really creative. They had nice leather jackets and some really nice tops and shirts. All of their stuff had nice feel to them and looked modern, clean, the way I like it.
