    I've never stopped by the shop, but I assume they only stock womens? Looks like a nice shop nonetheless.

    I stopped by their old location on 1st when I was still searching around for a decent tote and to check out some of the Silent accessories in person, so there's some unisex-ish stuff, but yea, primarily womens. Still, cool staff and really great buys, just no idea who in Seattle is actually shopping there.

    They have some interesting art/objects that I'd like to check out too. I wouldn't be surprised if many of their customers are in NY or LA simply buying from them online, similar to the clientele at Blackbird.

    Nor me - they put a ton of work into their e-shop and are awesome about getting measurements/more photos, etc. If they started carrying menswear I'd certainly shop there over Blackbird. PM if you do decide to check it out

    I really enjoy their styling too, feels like they have got quite a lot right! It would be interesting to hear about the shop if either of you goes (again).

    Quick question, anyone have the code for the cardigan in the pic? I don't remember seeing it anywhere for sale online, and not the stores I visited in Hong Kong and Beijing. Still hoping I'll get a chance to pick it up somewhere.

    I understand this is sort of a strange thread to post a question like this in, but seeing as there seem to be quite a few UKers who read this thread: If any of you have spent any time living in York, would you please PM me?

    Also, kiko, that suit is incredible. I remember passing on the pants when yoox had them because I thought I would never find the jacket, but now I'm sort of sad I didn't grab them.

    ^ great news. Thanks for the update. Like Atelier, the have mostly black and white stuff. None of the navy blazer pieces, colored pants or suits. Boo.

    On the bright side, they have three (3!) hooded coats. The navy fishtail parka is so cool. I don't remember seeing that on the runway. Bonus points for proper "Yohji fit" on the models, too. :)

    Indeed, their styling is great, much better than the typical yohji stockists.....Only if there are more colors......Why does everything have to be in either black or white[​IMG]

    Made a quick flip through the lookbook [​IMG]

    You could check out the Conduit St store's facebook page, they have scans of the lookbook pages as well.

    Bob, Ln-cc had that exact jacket/cardigan but it's sold out now. They still have it in linen though and so does Atelier New York as well.

    That's excellent news about La Garconne. Really like the store. Will go have a look at what they got in.
