i actually got the last one that runner posted as a gift for my mom for xmas---from my dad
(he asked me to shop for him)...
of course, i was secretly hoping she wouldn't like it and i'd have to keep it...

...

MP- i love it too!...
so adorable! and looks very cozy...

i came close to getting something similar from last years UU collab...
but then i decided that it would look like an old bath mat after a few wears...

* about the pants-
i was trying to understand why the size med fit me like a small, but then i remember they were purchased in japan, and the sizing is different! ...
so mine are like a small US size...silly me!

I ended up ordering the ultra light down hooded coat in black and it's so soft , roomy without being baggy... and so light I'm skeptical and scared of finding death in the snow if I rely on it ... I'll report back once I get out of this heat wave and test it in proper (bad) weather.

Oh and I had a good feeling about the sweat sets from the loungewear section and I was right... ... perfect for doing nothing.

it seems that they have this IDLF line where naoki takizawa did it, listening to her opinions, needs, etc.

"premium linen tunic" from that line

I like their linen stuff Runner.

Some nice pieces this spring, the Ines de la Fressange collection is a very appropriate collab., although it's very Agnés B.
Cute vid, always charming to see her talk.

I might like one or two of the dresses.

i saw that on their website...
while i found it an intriguing collab...
i am not personally drawn to it...
perhaps the linen shirts runner posted are the only things that could be good, at least for me...

the blue linen seems like a very good colour...
but the whole thing seems a little like a cartoon...
the sleeves are a bit too puffy...
while i would normally like a bit of a red stitched button, here it seems too much like a gimmick...
*oh- i know- let's have one button be stitched in red...
*yeah!...that'll be SO cool...
things like that...


if it was on the last button, it would be more subtle and more cool, imho...


it is very french though- so it will probably be a big hit in japan...
they seem to love everything french!
...

i confess---i like the menswear better...

stopped by the store today and didn't see that tunic...
though there were racks of her stuff...all super boring and yucky quality...

the basic linen shirts def do look good...

i also saw the michael bastian menswear collab...
that looks quite adorable, imo...
if i were a guy- especially a gay, stylish one (or just not an american one)- i'd be all over that stuff...
so cute~!

*and i normally hate hate hate polo shirts!...

i was doin the usual perusing at my local Value Village and i stumbled on a pair of Uniqlo jeans!

i read the brand label and it reads "UNIQLO women's -66-"

Given we Seattle-lites are always the last to get the good stuff, I've been deprived until now...to my amazement the jeans are 100% Cotton!

I'm very old-school when it comes to jeans and never liked the uber stretchy legging-ish jeans that are the norm these day. I can do 98% Cotton otherwise the material is too clingy.

Anywhoo the waist sits a tad bit higher than what's considered high waisted imo and the leg seems to be a straight fit. and gasp no hemming required!
I bought them for $7. so excited!

However, I'm stumped on what size the dang things are?!? There's no size indication on either the brand label or content label? is this normal?
Also are these a discontinued style? such is usually the case when i find something that actually fits my petite frame.

Any info you can give me to id these would be greatly appreciated!

I really love the IDLF stuff however that lady is very TALL with a very slender bordering on you know what looking frame, so imo these garments on the average person wouldn't look that exciting. more akin to Land's End from Sears :roll eyes:

I'm sucker for pajama like clothing and anything easy-going and loose so I do love those Easy Pinstripe pants & these with the red drawstring.

Overall it all looks really well designed and easy to coordinate. I like the details like the red stitching etc and pleasantly surprised by the touches rather than going completely overboard on the stereotypical tourist version of "Parisian style". I like the more utilitarian vibe rather than the waifish, Alexa Chung is my style icon, girls in Breton tops seen on every. site. on. the internet.

It's so funny to see what's considered "French" these days. Growing up devouring VOGUE, HB, Mlle etc as a kid, teen in the 90s, magazines presented French women with a more eclectic, experimental style and approach to dressing. Pre-internet there didn't seem to be such a distinction from say how ladies in the UK or Italy dressed.

The line is heavy on wardrobe staples which isn't any different from what every other higher end retailer is doing but i do appreciate the functional over overly kitsch or quirky lazy design distractions that plagues fashion these days.

if there's no discernable size on it, then it might be a uniqlo pair of jeans that a japanese person has brought back from uniqlo in japan. probably the original cost of the jeans that you bought was 20$.

only 1.5 more more months until uniqlo opens in my city. can't wait!

and you can buy a lot of breton tops at uniqlo online.

if I understand what they said rightly, the prices are not going to be raised over there at least this fall. it seems that things about prices in the US are not synchronized with things in japan.



new stuff from IDLF line
