they have these at Idea Books. Bels needs one surely?

Most of their tees are so bad (like the 'Etonian' and "I am a DJ' ones) I assume they are trying to be deliberately, ironically awful.

I was watching a guy play the new final fantasy and he went AFK while his characters were standing knee-deep in the water at the beach. I couldn't help wondering how salt water could ruin leather boots.

tried to order from m&s online, the site couldnt take my payment. ive had similar issues at boots online in the past. like i said about the media sector these companies are run by old people who have absolutely no clue about the internet. it just seems incredible in 2016 that things can be like this

went to Barneys for some sales and saw some vachement clothes up close for the very first time. It reinforced my belief in the elephant in the room with regards to fashion and the internet: you really have to see clothes first-hand in order to appreciate them. vachement was no different. in photos, no matter how stylized or painstakingly arranged, doesn't really capture the hand-feel, the gravity, texture, drape of the clothes. the vachement pieces were almost psychedelic, even and in particular the DHL t-shirt, which has a very strange neck that I've only seen in mushroom-fueled visuals. some of the pieces are kind of meh (sweat pants, for example) but most of them were very bizarre, almost frightening.

the point of this isn't to say that vachement is the shit but rather a) im surprised how little i really understood the clothes before i handled them and b) the brand really does seem to be striking into some original territory (which I think is actually diluted a little given the choices in graphics).

I completely agree (about the seeing clothes in real life thing). One of the things that I think is bad about so much shopping moving online is that it makes quality slightly redundant. Every time I look on the COS website I'm like: 'Hey, COS is pretty good!', every time I go in the store I leave after 2 minutes. COS clothes don't look that different online compared to the stuff on LN-CC (compared to how different they actually are).

It massively benefits huge fast fashion chains who can put large amounts of money into shooting and retouching e-commerce photography. I have been inside COS e-commerce HQ: pristine shirts painstakingly pinned onto white polystyrene boards, it's probably a very artisanal process.

I have a soloist shirt that took me like 10 minutes to figure out how to button because it's got three plackets and the buttons are all on different plackets and there are hidden extra buttons and fake buttonholes and one of the buttons you have to button the reverse way oh god

...just browsing for knitwear and come across Loro Pianas Vicuna range that includes a £4,740 pair of sweatpants.

With their relaxed silhouette and impeccable details, these pants are ideal for relaxing, après ski, or at the spa


'Après Ski', I dont even know what that means. Who the hell are their customers, Eastern European bureaucrats and corrupt FIFA officials?

and to top it off they are still 18% nylon

Apres ski is a universally used term for anything you do in the afternoon/evening after a day of skiing in a resort town

Having nylon in them is probably a durability/stretch thing, vicuna wool has very fine fibers. It's also really $$$, even in raw form:

https://www.pascuali.de/en/vicuna-100-v ... n/a-60816/

they're expensive but so is real estate in telluride/st Moritz/Whistler

I don't find these nearly as egregious as like, $600 cotton tees say

I've come to what I believe is a nice realization over the last couple of days. It's probably something some of you have thought about before but the ideas connecting it got me to worked up not to share it.

I assembled this belt a couple of weeks back that can be found in the DIY thread. And then a few weeks later I made a cross body strap which I've been using as a belt since. They both share the attribute of not securing the belt in the orthodox hole meets pin fashion, and these 'new' ways were pretty nice in my mind. Then a few days ago I remembered a bunch of stuff Don Norman speaks on in his 'The Design of Everyday Things', at least I think it's from there but I can't find the passage right now. He talks about how when something is designed really well it becomes so natural that it's solution becomes the standard execution of that type of object.

A good example is a spoon, it has a handle and a small bowl. All spoons look like this, it's what makes a spoon a spoon. But the same goal could be achieved with a very small bowl, but this is impractical and a spoon is very practical so that's why it looks the way it looks (actually now that I think about it this might come from Louis Kahn).

Anyway getting to my point is that a belt is also a good example of this.A belt will generally be a punch holed strap and a buckle with the classical pin in it. But this is not the only way to make a belt. And when I say make a belt I mean the essence of the belt, the tightening-and-securing-of-pants-function of the belt. Most belts look like this because it's a very practical way to secure a belt. But you can secure belts in as many ways as we can collectively conceive of. Some of them are bound to be extremly bad but I refuse to believe that he only good belt has a hole and a pin. This limits what a belt can be.

This is starting to sound like a belt is the best thing in the world, but the point I want to make is that this goes for all garments. If we identify the essences of a garment or whatever really and think about how it can be executed differently there are bound to exist interesting solutions. I believe some good design challenges those automated concepts we have of how something should function and look. There is a Swiss contemporary architect named Pascal Flammer whose lecture I attended when he was in Sweden. In his lecture he explained how he wants to avoid the automatisms that we have in the building industry. He wants to question every decision he makes and see if the conclusion he comes to is interesting due to approaching the problem in a previously glossed over way.

This goes for clothes too, be it how a belt is secured, how a dress is cut or even how something is worn we should think about how it can be done in new ways to push ourselves forward culturally, functionally, whateverly. I don't believe the belts I've made are revolutionary, the one in the DIY thread isn't even working properly, but I think this idea of actively questioning our own automatisms about clothes is something really essential to get forward.

Thoughts?

Samantha Cameron pursues long-held goal with fashion label launch

This week we learned what Sam ben has been up to since. The 45-year-old announced she would launch her own womenswear label early in 2017, with a 40-piece collection for sale through Selfridges and the designer fashion website Net-a-porter.

The label, she reveals in an interview with the new edition of Vogue, will be called Cefinn, which draws on the initials of her children, Nancy, Elwen, Florence and Ivan, the couple’s first child, who died in 2009.

She had always made her own clothes, she tells the magazine, but in 2011, after Florence was born, she hired a professional designer to teach her pattern cutting. The dining table at 11 Downing Street was set up with her sewing machine and she would spend evenings knocking up samples while listening to BBC Radio 6 Music.
