noticed her tees

"-NOW Made in USA"

they were made in canada before correct? Wonder how/if they'll change much

Anyways, really liking the easy shirt, white shorts and the new web design improvements.

Waiting on the black chinos, white family shirt and white chinos to drop :-)

Has anybody ever actually seen this sweater for sale?

Image

It's from FW10, and it's called a pheasant sweater, but that's about all the info I've ever seen about it.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE my stock chinos. I have the same pair posted on the other page. Wore them so much they are completely faded to a different color.

Anybody know of any other pants that fit like the. After a year and a half of wear, I have concluded this is my ideal pant.

Side note: I want to purchase all Dana Lee, if anyone has pieces available in a small/28 let me at 'them. Can't get enough and have slipped up on getting some great pieces of grailed. Really considering a Dana/OL dominated wardrobe.

Recently, the DANA LEE website endorsed this article, Dana Lee Goes Back to Basics, to promote the "stock program" aka the (mostly) white collection aka the longest maternity leave known in human history. It attempts to justify the flexibility of slightly modifying core signature silhouettes/styles season-to-season by comparing Dana to the likes of Margaret Howell and Christophe Lemaire and how they were the founders of such practice.

Despite best efforts to maintain solidarity I continue to walk with a diplopia of both: nostalgia for "early DANA" productions and complete betrayal by "current DANA". Can you keep a warehouse supply of sample sale garments on your webshop for 2 years and still call yourself a designer without creating anything in the meantime. Can you call making a couple shirts, pants and shorts a new collection. Can you refer to such a collection as a Back to Basics program when the brand itself hasnt made anything more ground-breaking than a two-toned casual shirt since 2013.

This current collection is implied as a placeholder until whenever she feels like shes bored of being a fully committed mother. I personally would have preferred to skip it, instead having a more radiohead-inspired return to the industry at a later time, where everything on the website was slowly deleted, including the tanktops.

Anyone want to give me a TL;DR on this designer? I heard of her many years ago but never understood the hype or why she left the scene (assuming she didn't return) considering her popularity.

copy of a copy of a comment (originally from suubz on reddit, aint that a throwback for some of yall):

New York based Canadian designer. Launched her first collection (A-Z) in 2006-- and though I've tried a couple times I can't find anything about her work from 2006-2009 besides a few interviews where she speaks vaguely about it. She launched her Dana Lee line for menswear in 2009 and has been on many people's radar since. Garments are made in Canada (not sure if all) and price is extremely reasonable. Heavy focus on fabrics and texture. the hopsack shirt is a classic that she reworks and does in different colors from season to season. Wish I'd known about her back in f/w 2011 so I could've picked up the lavender one. moar pics prints & texture The beauty of Dana's clothes to me lies in their simplicity. I could see 90% of what she makes being worn by people who have little/no interest in their clothes whatsoever. It just feels natural. Even when she does prints, they aren't overly 'fashion.' I could even buy a piece of hers and give it to my dad. But through all the simplicity, there's a sense of finesse and evident attention to detail in her garments that can be appreciated by people who really do like clothes. Color gets used plenty, but mostly in muted, earthy tones or light blues and pinks. Fit is I think one of the most defining characteristics of Dana Lee, though I don't know how I would describe it best-- would appreciate if someone else could chime in on this. Obviously looser and more comfortable.


note: redacted some of the reddit user references & broken links

yea basically she made mind numbingly boring clothes that let people kid themselves that they were 'into fashion' without the need to do anything interesting with their appearances

Fashion is also about TEXTILE Sam, the details on a care-tag, the stitching on a lining, hanging out with your friends and being goofy. You are not the fashion police just because you are famous on tik tok.
