moschino i feel is an extention of myself..if a fabric were ever to describe my personality, thoughts, or ideals moschino would definitely have created it so when i wear it, i feel like the hyper extended version of me..whatever that means:p

Whenever I wear Disney shirts (like my "I'd Rather Be in Disneyland" one), I do feel a bit different, almost as if I don't fit in. While that may very well be true (), it's something that's always been a self conscious thought of mine.

not so much getting this feeling by a lot of designers... the examples that come across my mind have been mentioned before... especially dior homme and ysl.

but... i think the greatest impact clothes can have on me is the posture they evoke... like in very narrow pants i tend to move much more attentive... much more tensed - like as if my body would be waiting for a trigger and suddenly my motions would just explode and express so many things... it makes me feel so edgy...
on the other hand... a well tailored pair of trousers gives a feeling of nonchalance and "unearthlyness" to me... feeling as if i was detached from the world... moving in a pure and simple way...

may sound a bit pathetic... but well made clothes make me change my posture and motion. so they change my allure...

Yes, you make a very interesting point ... I remember when Pilati came out with those wide belts at YSL, he made no secret of the fact that he was trying to change women's posture. Me, I found that incredibly arrogant & annoying When I want him critiquing & molding my posture, I'll let him know

actually you are right... but i don't see it as critique but as... expression. not only the look of a garment, also the feel and the posture it evokes are part of fashion's instruments to express... i like that very much.

^ I could see that you like it, and that's cool ... I suppose if Pilati were molding posture in a way I approved of, it would be different

As I get older, comfort becomes more important to me, although I was never a big fan of "pain for beauty's sake" (what my mother used to say as she was pushing back my cuticles, plucking my eyebrows, etc.) By which I do not mean elastic waists and sneakers ... but those 4- and 5-inch wide belts are out of the question as far as I'm concerned. (Even worse, the Dolce & Gabbana metal ones ) I find that ramrod straight posture unappealing, and I don't want any male designer playing with us like Barbie dolls

Well, that's how a designer makes me feel when I'm not wearing their clothes

Just thought I'd add that Bottega makes me feel powerful ... I think that's the right word ...

^ Or very logoed

You know, that's interesting, although I wear European designers, I never feel European ...

I feel very feminine in the Marc Jacobs blouse I'm wearing today. I think what I was thinking about Bottega is that it makes me feel armored as well ...

wow, i forgot i replied to this thread and now i kinda laugh at my response from more than a year ago.
erm...come to think of it, i dont feel much different whether im wearing a designer name or a high street piece or a cheap thrift store vintage. i think the name doesnt make much of a difference but it's really the actual piece of clothes it self that does wonders.

MUXU got me reading the beginning of this thread & I noticed this ... doesn't that sound great?

Certain handbags do this for me. If I have a Lauren Merkin clutch, I feel party girl. If I have my jumbo flap chanel, I feel mature. If I have a MbMJ, I feel more girly..
