you might remember a person like a white tiger, who appears in the video you posted in the cdiem thread. she was a sales director there, an able one. after altieri's collective project dispersed, and now she works for guidi. probably that's largely why guidi is this thriving in japan.
marsell is nice but they tend to hardly settle in stores at least over here. for example you see them for one season in a boutique but disappear from there next season, but instead you come across them at another retailer. they seem to have this discontinuous tendency. for certain stability there has to be more than just waiting for buyers at venues such as tranoi. something like relation more dynamic, interlocking.

the patchwork junya is from FW 2014 ( the season junya watanabe denim was launched as a full fledged line, pic below ), but if you feel like you were wearing a boat with tricot, you could feel you are wearing a battleship with junya. and maybe a phantom ship or even spaceship with rei.
the crazy loafer is from FW 2013 btw.

anyway the problem is I cannot find anything that seems just right yet.

yes- i remember the white tiger...
that video was cool and so was she...
i especially remember the hammering of the shoes...
unforgettable...

thanks for the explanation...
in addition to those factors, i also think that marsell just doesn't have enough focus...
so many styles out there and some are really awkward...
i don't find them consistent, which might be part of why they have problems creating loyalty - both with stores and with customers...

i don't think i realized that a separate denim line had been created for junya...
but that makes so much sense...
that coat in that pic is ...
thx for the pic...

this is sooooo funny and soooo true~!!!
...

whatever it is...it must be elegant...
and that is rarely a word one can use to describe any footwear from the cdg universe...
cool---yes...
elegant---not so much...

what i search for is something that is both...
it's a challenge...

thank you for looking...
you are a darling...

i like this thread though...
i think it really helps to see everything gathered together like this...

the junya patchwork reminds me of this...
not sure i would wear it but i really like the idea...

So many great pairs in this thread! I am thinking of getting these from MNG ... The gap at the ankle is the only thing that bothers me, but I presume the model doesn't have them tightened enough in addition to having stick thin legs.

I love mod style shoes. I like edgy punk elements too, just nothing over the top. Here is an example of a shoe I own and love.

J Crew Low Ankle Chelsea boot in suede. I bought them in black and they have a white bottom, you can't really tell from the picture below, but I think it is very chic.
I actually bought them full-price, the prices kept dropping with sales though. I didn't anticipate that!

Black:

White:

Example of someone wearing them:




Source: www.ebay.com

I don't wear them that often so the bottom stays very clean, I own a lot of shoes, I would buy these again and don't regret them at all.

i love the booties the girl is wearing in this pic...
i love the way they go up in the front...
i have no idea what they are---
probably vintage?
it's a pic from a vintage website...


i'm beginning to think it might be worth it to explore the vintage market...
lord knows i NEVER expected to find those vintage YSL's- and in perfect condition too...
barely worn...

Ben Sherman (men's, but taller girls may fit them) Chelsea boots were down to £40 on Black Friday. That deal may still be on.

tried the usual suspects to see if i could turn up a pr in sz 38...
no luck so far though..

what if you try ordering what they think is the smallest and then you get the right one and that turns out to be the magic formula of yoox with the item

yoox indeed has some weird size listings as times, but in this case, they only had two available sizes and i did try them both...
no go!



*anyway- i already spent the money on something else- tickets for the Cure!
