post your favourite season / collection from a designer
imo 2002 raf is best raf
I always liked Odyn Vovk's AW11 runway. Kinda what got me into fashion:
Good choice OP, great collection and it's a real shame he's distanced himself so much from what was his best work.
These threads usually don't do too well since most people are only interested in fashion insofar as buying and purchasing fast-fashion clothes and shoes, people don't come to /fa/ for discussing collections and designers unfortunately.
OP here, I can't really financially sustain my interest in wearable fashion, so I quite like learning about the more conceptual side.
And yeah, I can't say I'm not a little bit disappointed by how much he's deviated from his older work. I suppose his designs are a bit more relaxed now, but for me the things that got me excited about him aren't really there anymore.
It's from the lookbook... Of course it has to look unique to draw peoples' attention
The individual pieces are great and I'm sure we'll be seeing them a lot here in the coming months
pic related... wow, that sweat
dislike the men's FW12 runway.
I'm really into Crust runway:

wish the archived pics werent so small
also I'm kinda psyched on faun for being a harder sell and being different for him
>not surprising considering it's acne
Since its inception in 1996 when it was led by a team of no-name designers with nothing but an artistic dream, Acne has become one of the most influential fashion powerhouses in the world.
And there's a good reason for it.
The brand has always been about volumes - over-sizing and exaggerating the silhouette of the clothes, and then layering them.
Based in Sweden, the brand is naturally influenced by minimalist ideology. They've managed to reflect this in their cuts that are simple, but will still lead even the most experienced fashion veteran to take a second look.
While the distant, cold, and modern styling of their clothing may not resonate with some people, I can guarantee you that the whole fashion world has their eye on Acne.
What people have come to expect from Acne is not "weak collections", but collections full of clean, hypermodern pieces that manage to stand out without looking out of place in the wardrobe of a young urbanite who lives by the same principles that Scandinavian design is built on - simplicity, minimalism, and functionality.
Their Resort 2015 collection is also very comfy, by the way.
i prefer raf ca. 2008
there was this absurdly detailed wool coat from f/w 2008. i want to try and see if i can get detail pics. pic attached is from s/s 08
Raf's s/s2008 is maybe his best collection
hard to go wrong with him. i love almost everything he has done. 2008 was also the year he did those immortal marble suits for jil. i wonder why they havent come back, even ripoff versions from acne would be ok with me.
also fiending for other rock prints. so much potential. gneiss and slate off the top of my head, but im sure some hardcore geologists can school me on obscure beautiful rock patterns
It felt the most impactful to me, but it's not exactly a revolution if you look at the clothes itself.
I liked all of his stuff more or less the same amount, it's hard to pick a favorite.
second on this, mountain womenswear was incredible
nothing else has caught my eye recently besides lela jacobs but i think i just have a soft spot for her
>not surprising considering it's acne
steaming hot new meme coming through boys ;^)))
Paying 230 euro for a plain white t shirt
>pieces that manage to stand
Go on, I'm waiting for your justification.
If it's not already obvious, you're paying for the cut, fabric, design, and of course the brand.
Open up this pic, and compare it with a different white tee in your wardrobe. Surely you'll see the difference.
You would be hard-pressed to find a tee similar to the Acne one elsewhere. I'm not saying it's superior, or better looking than a $10 Uniqlo tee; I'm just showing you how not all plain white tees are as plain as you might believe.
If you want an analogy, ask yourself:
What's the difference between a $10 wine and a $100 wine? They look the same, and they both taste like fermented grape juice.
"100% cotton" aka the "genuine leather" of the tshirt world
wont list the country of manufacture because paying 275$ for something made in portugal is just that embarrassing
i mean if ur gonna pay for the logo on ur shirt u could get balenciaga, givenchy, whatever garbage u want, those are all once respected brand names at least, acne is just embarrassing to have paid money for
Made in Portugal at best. A lot of their shit is China and below. Fucking Lithuania and shit, pushing on H&M level of cheap. I always dug that about Our Legacy, at least they source their fabrics from respectable countries and aren't as overpriced
I have a real soft spot for elaborate cloaks. Really been thinking about copping a Damir Doma one.
I'm a big fan of the early 2000 runways of Yohji. Although im not a huge fan of his Y-3 label I really think some of his mainline pieces are truly beautiful. I like Issey stuff aswell.
I'm also a huge fan of Julius FW10. I don't have the fashion vocabulary to really say what it is about these shows that draws me in, but they're both very aggressive.
Me too. Hello fellow Seattleite.
Favorite might be Helmut Lang AW03. It's a shame he bowed out of the fashion game at his peak.
I could have picked from any number of his collections though. His style evolved so much over his 17 year career. Hell, he even changed the rules of designer fashion and runway shows.
>models on same level as audience
>decides to show his collection before everyone else, ultimately resulting in NY fashion week taking place first
the sheer wool and mohair dresses got my dick hard for certain
best rock print i have ever seen in my entire life in the history of the world and the world that will go on this rock print is pure fire and it's beauty will withstand the test of time
seriously though, this print is sexy, it's some sort of black marble i can't recall, reverse image search it, you'll find it
wait you think an oversize tee is a rick design? lol, what? I know what tee you're referring to and it's also an oversize shirt but has plenty of differences (where the shoulder drops, the reverse shoulder stitch detailing). try again dude.
>These threads are the best ones on /fa/
Yeah, maybe cos the rest is maximum shit anyway.
All you people do in these threads is post a pic or two of the only collection you know, maybe copy and paste some irrelevant facts written by sb elses and repeat muh pre 2003 raf is best raf since all you ever saw was the same three tumblr pics of new order prints on parkas.
wait, you think *i think* oversize tees are rick's design? lol, what?
the shoulder drop depends on the model and the stylist's choice for the model's size. the only difference you said so far was the stitching. that's not "plenty of differences."
its conspicuous that acne would introduce this tee shortly after rick's design. both have the normal crewneck opening. both sleeves end at the elbow. both have a more heavy fabric than the typical cotton jersey. of course others have done oversize tees before, but they usually have been with a larger neck opening, the sleeves ending earlier, and of a lighter fabric.
Can we agree that we're talking about an oversized shirt here? This is nothing new. If you want to say ACNE is ripping Rick, then you gotta say Rick is ripping someone else who is ripping someone else... this is not a new idea that has popped up in the last season.
Secondly, you're wrong about the shoulder drop. The sleeve on the Rick tee meets at a normal spot, the ACNE tee drops hard like an oversized tee. Secondly, there is the reverse shoulder structuring on the front of the tee.
When you are talking about a t-shirt, these are very important distinctions, otherwise everybody is just ripping off somebody else.
Because of where the sleeves are it allows for a slimmer cut in the body, too. These patterns would look like two totally different shirts. Although the silhouette in static shots is similar, these shirts undoubtedly move different from one another in real life considering how much more structure the rick one has.
of course its nothing new, i never contested that. and yes, i would say rick is ripping someone else. except not anyone in particular, a lot of rick's ideas from from black street wear. if i could say anything definitive about oversize tees, black guys wearing XXXXL hanes would be the beginning of the styling point.
also, you cant possibly say im wrong about the shoulder drop. it depends on the model and the stylists choice. pic is an example. if the new acne shirt were sold elsewhere we might see it on a model where it ends at the normal spot as well.
>reverse shoulder structuring
i didnt disagree with this either. did you even read my post?
you haven't added anything new to the conversation, and your reading comprehension is awful.
one difference doesn't make a world of difference. kent wang common project ripoffs don't have stitch-on soles either, but that isn't an "important distinction" that makes them somehow not ripoffs.
it doesnt look slimmer. look at the video on m porter. it is structured, sure, the fabric is a stiff heavyweight cotton, but it isnt slimmer. very boxy fit. that's the idea.
Sleeves are way longer, shirt is way longer, how is this the same shirt again?
Regardless, point is moot, it's an oversized shirt. Every designer does one eventually, so yeah the details do matter
Raf aw 1998 is pretty sick: sick models and everything
but why did he have to destroy it all with the shit pants?
>"oversized plain t-shirt"
there are many different kinds. they aren't all just "plain." pic related. its very different from the other two in this thread. i can post OTHER different kinds of oversized t-shirts if for some reason you still dont get it.
the acne and rick ones are more similar than they are different. again, conspicuous because a) acne came out with it after rick and b) acne is known to just mooch trends
its just a size up. like i said, it depends on the model and how the stylist wants to size the model and the clothes. any other retailer could size down the acne shirt on their model and the seam would fall on the shoulder. how are you not comprehending this point.
I get your point dude I just completely disagree, the shirts are different enough in a number of way, the shoulder width and slimmer body being a large one. The silhouette is nothing new to the industry so no, ACNE did not copy rick. Here is a represent piece that they've been doing every season. This shirt has been around awhile. All I'm saying dude is there is nothing conspicuous about it. Look around at more designers, they all make this cut at one point or another.
also, aren't rick's shirts sort of supposed to be wrung in the fashion towels are, to sort of have a rough-but-uniform spiral when worn? if anything that's something i don't see too often besides distressed denim which is never pulled off well
That's more specifically the double-layered styles because the jersey is looped back on its and also twisted before it's secured with a stitch. All the other jerseys can twist if you make them, but they don't do it on their own like the doubled unstable cottons ones do.
