that's funny I was totally wooed by limi... and yohji, other than some of the white/black tops left me flat. she seems to be hitting the "punkier" mark a bit more for me, which makes sense for my style.

yeah- but compared to yohji which is sooooo soooo elegant and refined...
the stuff just looks ..i don't know...sort of immature in a way, if that makes sense...

at least that's how i see it...

thanks for the heads up, lucky!

i'm not really feeling it, although a lot of the pictures of things I am interested in are not showing up yet....i like the stripey tanks, but I'd like them in black.
to be fair though, it's pretty impossible to judge the garments when they're on those mannequins. :p

also....i have to admit that, even on the runway, i don't like this collection nearly as much as some of the other stuff limi has done...so that may be part of the issue too. i still the two pieces that you got though.

I saw a few more pieces at IF today, and luckyme, I think you may have already bought the best ones!

I did like this piece with the cropped back, which they had in tomato red and in the metallic; and also the cardi with the multiple belts.

Nothing got me super excited though...except for the Y's Red Label, which was hanging across the way....:p

^ lucky, this online store a few pieces (very few), including a vest:
http://www.joanshepp.com/firma.php?c...and=Limi%20Feu

The prices are pretty good, but it isn't really my style. I agree with Laika, I prefer what she's done in the past over the current collection. For example, the cardigan that Laika had but then sold on ebay

no to be honest I completely forgot about limi feu but I wouldn't have known where to look for it.....

interestingly though Isabel Marant is being stocked in Maria Luisa and in the heavyweight designer floor in Printemps......:p
