had to look up the name david sylvian...
i know the band though...
:p

he's so androgynous looking...quite the epitome of the 80's new wave/ new romantic look...

i suppose that i could see that working, yes...
quite well, in fact...but more as a stage costume than office attire...
:p
i guess rei and yohji don't really make clothes for people who work in offices though, do they...


thanks for the references---definitely puts the clothes into a different perspective...
they are so different when worn by the right person...


sometimes i see people wearing stuff like this and they just look weird or crazy...and then other people just seem like they were born to wear it...
it's quite amazing to me...i haven't quite figured out why that is yet...

I hope this isn't of topic but I'm wondering if their striped Play tees on ebay are mostly fake or real. Like this one: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Comme-des-Ga...item337e347f96 Thanks

it's totally ON topic...
:p

i don't know for sure, but i wouldn't trust any of them...

lots of fakes and i don't know how you can tell the difference without inspecting the merch in person...

man...i love that coat...
and the shade of red of that scarf...
so signature comme...

the buttons are just ......
i just love the contrast...but they still seem elegantly understated...

i keep falling for that sort of double breasted navy military coat...
i've even bought a couple---
one vintage and one from Thimister...
i even had the thimister coat tailored and fitted...
but the proportions just never quite seem to work on me...


i think i need to get a japanese one from comme or yohji...
they just do proportions differently than european designers and the coats and jackets work better on me than anything else ever does...

athough the prices above at a store named plaguesearch are not especially good, I put them there because it may be a bit interesting to get to see them again when we happen to get back to this page in the future.



I saw the +noir coat (black though) worn at YY. my first impression was its looking like a dress in a way.
sorry for this weird vision in my brains. but the person in it looked in some way as if she had been wearing a dress with a front closure, a dress in the form of a coat. so it didn't look heavy and out of place, fully buttoned, indoors. even if her wearing it with the sleeves flipped and showing a bit of the tan lining might have done a little magic.

i know exactly what you mean...
it had that same effect on me...
like a bell-shaped dress...
that particular coat is very fitted...at least it was on me...
also- it seemed that it really looked best when worn closed because of this effect...
the lining and the waist detail made it feel less 'precious' to me, as well...
and therefore seemed like it could be good for casual style as well as over a ballgown...
just perfect with everything-- every single thing....

*really like some vintage european military coat---which all seem to be very sharply tailored---except that this was shrunken down to the exact right proportions for a woman, rather than big and oversized like a man's vintage military coat...
that coat was quite exceptional, imho...

i expect that he will do more of that kind of thing though...
it's very YY

Sale Alert! Comme des Garçons

The last time Comme des Garcons had one of their "shopping festivals" in New York—which they call Market Market (so good they named it twice!)—the racks seemed to stretch forever in the vast Croatian Church on the West Side. People were given enormous shopping bags when they walked in, and often they needed more than one. Because when Comme is 70% off, one hoards.
Now comes the sequel, Market Market 2. Beginning May 10, Comme will once again put out their best old stock, all the brands under the Comme umbrella from the last eight seasons. As before, the merch is replenished and rotated each day, so no chance of shopping fatigue.
Comme des Garçons Market Market 2
May 10 - 13, 10 am - 7 pm (Sat: 12 - 8 pm)
127 W. 30th Street (between 6th and 7th Ave)
