of course! i mean the artistic savvy ones...they'll say quirky is a hot quality.
but then again, in my experience their dream women are bjork, or someone like her... anyways, i was waiting to 'go out' tonite, unfortunately that didn't work so now i find myself thinking the next best thing is posting pics of inspiring fashion! at least i don't have to dress up!

Incredible. How can a person be so talented?

Softgrey, for what it is worth, I recently talked a friend into buying one of the s/s 2000 dresses that you can unzip to change its colors on ebay. Within weeks of the dress arriving she found out she was pregnant and her boyfriend proposed to her. I think it is the dress that did it.

after surveying this handful of collections together, what do you think?? i'd like the hear your thoughts. i agree w/ haruki..this man's talent is immense..i think his approach reminds me of issey miyake-- they both started out experimenting, and moved on to use synthetic fibers heavily in their pieces, simply because they broke all the old rules, and now watanabe is going back to really elegant, functional solutions...btw what are his prices like? i would love to see him contribute a more affordable line of clothing

that's one of my favorite pieces from that collection! when i first saw that show i wanted to do that to all my turtles but i couldn't bear it if they got ruined. i'm glad you did it, even if it was painful! but you know, good style does have its consequences

Watanabe pricing can be shockingly high. Some of his zipped and emroidered pieces fom this season are very expensive indeed. In general I'd say you were looking at 200 ish for a shirt, around 300-400 for a skirt and upwards of 700 for dresses. Jackets start at about 4/500.His mens' parkas this season got up to nearly 900!! It's not cheap.

I agree about it being a good idea if he created a more affordable line, but it's really never going to be like that. It's made in Japan for a start, so cost will be high, and it will always be even more expensive in US and Europe. Also his work can be quite intricate, using expensive detailing and fabrics.
