I like and dont like Christopher Shannon. I put him in the same category with Matthew Miller, Lou Dalton, Agi & Sam, Casely Hayford... kind of good, kind of bad, kind of cant seem to get anywhere in the fashion world.

I would say Christopher Shannon is by far the best of that lot although I have a soft spot for Lou Dalton too. There is no market for directional fashion in the UK so to be a successful UK brand you need to break into the US/Japanese/somewhere else market. I think a lot of UK brands get stuck somewhere in between where everyone is like: 'who is this brand for?' and the only people who buy it are trendy rich ironic 20-somethings and people who mistake it for something else.

i think my brain has become so corrupted by the resale market that i only look at fashion shows/new releases to see what i think will end up as a collector's item

im looking through the Raf/Mapplethorpe stuff and not even looking to buy, but what will have the most value in a few years

they take a luxury commodity and then parody it through the lense of ....ummmm....counterfeit products and....errrr.... youth movements you make a really interesting vision that pokes fun at the whole meaning of....well.... luxury consumer goods. see it as an extension to the larger societal hip and....ummm.... cool millennial movements such as vaepour waev. yes, youths r creating a class consciousness of sorts surrounding their inability to buy the products that are so relentlessly marketed at them, overwhelmed by the supposed value they strip them of the superficial hallmarks they like (branding) and appropriate them in a way which they can afford to participate. really what we are seeing here is a counter culture in its infancy


this is just a small extract on my consultant speech titled "what r those damn kids up too" if you would like more please pay me £10000 and i can give an hour long speech on why these damn twenty year olds make such garbage new hip goods which you can get in on.

i've elaborated on this in my brain, my real problem is with the word "iconic" and how it's used to display worth immediately, maybe because success and what's in style is so fleeting that slapping the word iconic on something will somehow preserve or bestow value. maybe i was tricked into thinking Raf/Mapplethorpe would have resale value or be worthwhile in a few years because it has the word iconic lacquered all over it. (maybe it will be, i think the sterling ruby stuff will hold up)

craig green just showed today and it's being called "already iconic," which seems like a cheap way to deflect criticism.

They do that for every craig collection since ss15 lol

its all immediately amazing and a fashion moment

funny how i never see any craig in streetstyle since then......

dunnnnnnnnnnnnnnoooo how to feel about craig

i will say all his stuff feels mad nice in person, it's made to a high standard. things like the trims, the labels are all thought about which is nice.

i love the new latex label cover (aw16) im not sure if they do a diff material as the label cover every season but that was different to my ss15 pieces.

overall i cant really fuck with it but the new collection is pretty inoffensive.

edit: i think i really have a problem with the styling

i miss when julian ganio styled the collections, now (dunno about this one but the last few have all been) robbie spencer styles it and i just dont like what he does with it

like the cinched waists just dont feel Craig to me, not the tiny gathered ones that are internal, the big ropey belt ones.

also dont fuck with the quilted stuff, just ugly tbh.

also the shoes are so bad oh my god just fucking make shoes.

dunno its a pretty good collection i guess but just...not great.

ya quilting is fugly

I've found the quality of his items to be hit or miss. my nylon workwear jacket had several stitching flaws before even wearing it. and the straps started to fray a bit

other items from that season (and past seasons) I tried on seems solid tho

When you wear a sweet outfit and take a fit pic but can't post it because you're saving it for the bloodshed of the arena.

Still dont know how I feel about Off-White. Sometimes I see the runway or lookbooks and think, yeah theres some really nice stuff here, especially the womenswear. Then you see some really daft shit like those Royal Mail shirts, Umbro shirts and constant regurgitation of 'yoof cultra' buzzwords

These two plus the dude who runs midnight studios and really really really wishes he was Jun takahashi are trying as hard as possible to ruin the word culture

all the stuff off white makes that isn't chevron shirts and pants is just a vehicle to help the brand sell as many of those things to the children of new money mainlanders as possible

788k followers in Instagram as well, had no idea the following was so big, they must make a rinse off all that chevron shit. I wonder how big the whole Off-White design team actually is?

Saw something about Virgil Abloh being included in this 'North: Identity, Photography, Fashion' exhibition the other day. Really going to include Off-White in an exhibition about cultra and identity of Northern England? I know its that Hacienda geezer but bit of a stretch init?

maybe im just a hater tho

I went to the exhibition opening the other night.

Virgils pieces in it are just kind of shit he's just in there to be there?

He made an installation which is some columns and a brancusi reference.

wow culture.


dunno overall it was a bit of a shit exhibition that didn't really say much apart from "these items and photographs we have gathered here are all from the north, isn't that simply wonderful?!"

I thought the craig show was OK. I like how it's all monotone (except when it isn't)

I like monotone outfits

Don't know about the whole sailor concept. Seems pretty lame.

Big fan of these political compass memes, especially the ones that sort of make sense for a couple of quadrants but are ultimately just stupid. Like this:
