no fashion week thread? :(
Where do you think you are?
Also, instead of posting pics you're probably better of referring to collections through (the) Vogue Runway (App).
Not actually sure how I feel about this Lemaire collection, it's decent but there wasn't anything that really caught my eye this rime around...
Oh except for that one guy with the cape that was sick, pic related
Camo on camo on camo with the ski mask, that is my crook look.
Fit is king for day to day attire. Runway shows in general tend to exaggerate the designer's intentions or ethos of an actual ready to wear collection. The designers then sell ready to wear. For general purpose fit is king but you'll see that having a more relaxed look works for a different look
Presentation at Versace was spectacular.
highights so far in no order:
versace: im a fan of space theme
prada: great clothes, first time ive see miuccia do a theme
gucci: i love the vibe but not the whole looks, though some seperates like jackets etc were good
neil barrett: i always like neil barrett too
juun j: give me that genderless boundryless thing that i love. also i loved the matrix style coats (what is the proper name? who cares)
probably a few more i cant remember at the moment
looking forward to:
raf simons (in like 20 minutes)
Because they're not bigger, they're exaggerated. Baggy clothes in day to day life generally means ill fitting in the places that matter, shoulders, chest, length being too long and sleeves that don't fit.
what happened to jewelwave? used to be all over effay a few months ago
i thought raf was decent, can't wait to wear xxxxl clothing
fuck I'm SO HYPED FOR YOHJI
gosha was today apparently, I missed it
it looks shit desu
apparently Rei Kawakubo from cdg was sitting front row
reminds me of schmul
f/w1516 had some good pieces, but the flag one is ruined by fuckbois
fw 15/16 was weak imo. saved by the knits and fur coats
yea i know thats why i said
>this show hardly had anything that could be defined as sportswear
ss16 (pic related) was almost entirely sportswear
>too bad its almost all synthetic
this. handling his pieces irl is.. disappointing i guess. they look great in editorials/shows but as wearable clothing, gosha falls flat sometimes.
pic related is one of my favorite gosha pieces, i tried it on and it covered me in fuzz and felt like i was wearing a stiff rug

it doesnt produce gosha, it supported gosha produce
Although im not really sure why he chose marilyn, i did think the execution of it all was done really well. She was instantly recognizable in all prints, yet it didnt feel distracting. I think the use of her pictures gave the show a atmosphere that felt light and beach/summer-esque, which i really enjoyed.
Cdgh+ and junya I hope will be good, dries was solid as to be expected, Raf was better than I thought but, people more intelligent than I said it was Virginia creeper but without the cool bits, vogue mentioned margiela and the passing of time as themes and also mentioned the contrast between this collection and the previous very lynchian collection Raf maybe should look forward instead of back and maybe I should gain a better perspective on it, what do you guys think
that's what the last few colections made me think, but i feel he found his own footing a bit with this one, while obviously keeping with the brand aesthetic.
Fucking Margiela. Can they finally say if Galliano designs the menswear as well or not? This is pissing me off.
big file sizes
this jacket is the best
details were very good
How would I go about getting into the fashion show in ny coming up? Don't know anyone in ny in the fashion industry. I own quite of nice pieces ranging from rick to lesser known jap brands that stand out all being black or shades of grey. i'm just trying to experience a real fashion show instead of behind the screen every year haha. Any ideas would be really appreciated.
Loewe is beautiful. Much prefer the stuff J.W. has done at Loewe to his own stuff, though this year's was pretty incredible.
sick, i didnt know loewe was doing a show
JW's own line is complete trash imo, but his stuff at loewe has always been great, especially his fall 2015 collection
very much liking this collection aswell although some of the pieces strike me as something that would belong on his personal line, i really hope he doesnt bring that style too much into the loewe stuff he does, apart from that its great though
what is it with the comeback of straight cut trousers? it maks everything look old as fuck, like straight out of 2001 except for Valentino that is very nice
i´m looking for SLP and Dior
yeah but the shirts and boots were very nice, a nice detail in the oversized outfits
the use of baroque patterns and aesthetics in modern aesthetics, i was thinking on implementing some baroque in my minimalist style
wonder what those shiny things are? MOTHERFUCKING SOLAR PANELS
I like how valentino just straight copied the helmut lang astro parka
it will probably even cost more than the original
god, I just want to wear nothing but Dries for the rest of my life. It always looks so easy and relaxed, but it's not that easy to pull off, I think.
Also how much $$$$ does he fucking make? That location is insane.
He's done some work for operas so chances are he knows the owners.
lmao go away with this gay ass shit, how much offfa fag do you have to be to watch diz lame cracker designs
Alright, now that we got this out of the way I gotta say that I am a tad disappointed by this years PFW. Valentino went complete fucking retard with those jackets, Jesus Christ. Dior Homme was pretty disappointing as well. Hardly any outstanding pattern, just a lot of generic pieces that lacked character (while they tried really hard to save it with meme ribbons). The least disappointing was Issey Miyake (until now)... if we ignore the fucking pajamas.
Lanvin will be a total train-wreck again and Tom Browne's collection clattered in his meme stripes. The only thing that can save tomorrow is Paul Smith pulling another SS15 collection, although I kinda doubt it. Sunday looks really grim.
Yohji and Cdg came through with good collections imo, just nothing revolutionary as we often have come to expect from them. Dries was outstanding though, and Issey was pretty good too, as you say.
Junya was good if you're looking for a coat, thats about it
Lanvin will be shit, issey's mens is rarely good so no suprise there, Valentino following versace's lead by copying astro and moto parkas
Dries is possibly the most consistent designer of all time
Yohji was subpar, as Irene silvagni said a few years ago hes lost his passion. and while he can still create an amazing garment because he's a master his clothing simply isn't as magical as it once was
Cdgh+ on the other hand was exceptional
It's an obvious copy.
>mfw stylezeitgeist is shitting themselves raging over this
Those faggots really don't know shit about fashun
This is the dopest shit
I recommend viewing the entire collection, it hit so many typcial AnnD angles in a subtle matter... Also bleeding some Margiela, but what else would you expect
Runway fashion isn't about creating the best wearable outfit, it's more about individual pieces, the concept as a whole and art tout court.
This is like asking if people like experimental music unironically, just because it isn't top 40 doesn't mean it can't be great, or probably greater, than what's 'normal'.
Raf - amazing lower halves and I'm almost certain he's taking the piss with the oversized sweaters
Dries - boring
Ackermann - lame but holy shit that blue bomber
Yohji - Boots and pants were incredible, but strange for him. upper halves uninspired, I think he just stuck to what was comfortable for him to design
Issey - clusterfuck, enjoyable
Boris - wasn't bad
Rick - was poorly executed but glad to see he is always pushing his out of his comfort zone
>Dries - boring
I will hunt you down
Also what's left of the Raf collection if you ignore the top half? It's just the same cropped trousers with the same boots or sneakers all the way through.
dries lacks a theme, it's boring because it's the same gorgeous yet directionless stuff every time. not all bad though
the colours raf used are SICK
once you look past the oversize which has to be him making fun of vetements and margiela, it's just self referential, but THE COLOURS
>raf was complete garbage
what is going on in this thread
I'd rather have Dries give me 50 dope as fuck outfits with no obvious theme (the collection still looked cohesive imo) instead of that Marylin shit from SS16.
And I don't think the oversized sweaters are him making fun of Vetements and Margiela (the show notes even said that Margiela is one of the biggest infuences on the collection), it's more like showing his appreciation for Margiela (and maybe showing Vetements who's boss, because he did what they're doing now like 10 years ago already).
Dries went for a few themes, pscychedelic graphics and military embroidery and made a nothing but absolutely amazing pieces and looks while Raf created 3 different looks and then rehashed those with different colorways
After reading that Lynch and Twin Peaks was a major inspiration for the Raf show, I kind of like it a lot more. It really feels like they boys could be some Twin Peaks character.
Walter's show was alright but it has some of my favourite looks all season. Leopard print motif was wack as fuck though.
so far imo
and please stop trying to bring back velvet. jesus christ.
>being stuck in 1970
Gucci wasn't the worst by far but I do agree that they're kind of just rehashing shit and aren't doing anything worthwile, they do make some really beautiful pieces though
wooyoungmi is hopping on the wide pantleg train, and they look pretty cool
so far i liked kolor, margiela was a bit different, with the sportswear stuff.
rick was a little unexpected but not in his usual way, despite that, the carpenter pants could be something to experiment with.
wooyoungmi, and sacai were great.
also, raf was kind of boring, balmain same as always.
My thoughts exactly. This collection had everything I love about Ann D but still felt like it was trying something new, staying relevant, taking risks. Made me optimistic for the future of the brand
Anyone else really like carven, Iots of interesting wearable pieces, so much stuff I would cop, loved this coat
>mfw just noticed SLP not happening till the 10th
>Those faggots really don't know shit about fashun
You talk about his shithole, right?
really liked Diors collection, its has a vibe like SLP FW13 but keeping the same essence but moving into the new trends like flared pants and shit like that, very nice, my favourite by far after Raf and Valentino
of course this would be unwearable unless you're not afraid of getting stared at already.
all i know is its somwhere between sunday and next friday from the looks of it, he's been keeping pretty quiet.
beast must be a real big surprise.
has anyone else checked out songzio?
kind of a personal black horse this season.
Lanvin really went all out with this collection. Looks like a pair of Reebok shoes from the late 90s.
I mean, its not like I expected anything but I think the bottom parts of the oufits were even worse than what I expected.
What does that have to do with my post? I didnt imply otherwise. However, I would have expected them to adjust their course considering how bad business has been (apparently), and all the recent shows have been.
Sometimes when I'm sad, I go into the catalogue and look at your posts. You trying to pretend you know what you're talking about always gives me a good laugh, and puts me in a much better mood. Thanks bud
The Undercover show is great. Posting my favorites: 1/4
I'm definitely going to try to get this jacket.
weebcore 2016 confirmed
this oversized meme is already dead in the water.
looks like its from kohls.
rest is aight.
opinions on thom browne?
seems like he went a little dark with some of these pieces.
i like it, very gothic and dystopian but still well structured.
