What Collections Did You Buy The Most Of?
What are the collections you have found to be most wearable, and thus have bought most of ? I think there's a difference between loving a collection and thinking it's fabulous, and actually wearing a collection, no ?

I have personally found the last two men's Prada spring collections to be my most wearable. I loved the eclectic prints from SS12 and the spongey material from SS13 is amazing !!

Yes, I certainly think there is a difference between fabulous collections and wearable collections; the former is wonderful to see designers pushing the boundaries and inspiring others, and, like the awe-inspiring pieces in Hussein Chalayan's AW 13-14 collection really draw out incredible emotions as if you are sat experiencing true modernity and art.
But the latter, the wearable collections, give one a different feeling; a warm feeling almost. At least, as a man constantly reviewing women's collections that is what I get when I see a collection and know that that is what I would want to wear as if I was a woman.
These collections have to be wearable, beautiful and uniquely designed (often the uniqueness is more concentrated in subtleties in the cut or embellishments in these wearable garments). Good collections present one with an array of garments, for every event, tactfully providing a customer with options and a potential new wardrobe.

Here are some of my recent wearable collections:

Dries Van Noten A/W 12-13



Cťline A/W 10-11



Cťline A/W 13-14




No. 21 A/W 13-14




Proenza Schouler S/S 2011

A bit of a tailoring theme going on

i bought many pieces of the Imitation of Christ Spring 2006 line.

here are all the pieces i currently own pictured.

the romper has got to be in the top ten pieces of items i own ever!
i own the short sleeved t shirt in blue and the skinny jeans in a few colors. the denim skirt reminds me of something sofia loren would wear as does the denim dress.

i actually own "back ups" of the romper and the blue skinny jean. (one pair literally wore to shreds - no way i am ever getting rid of it)

the strapless dress i havent worn yet. i tried it on last summer when the weather was right for it. it was too slightly tight. i think i might have to be patient and wait for the denim to stretch!

I'm afraid I don't understand the point of the new title of this topic, it was 'Which collections do you find the most wearable?' before, right?
I may be wrong but I highly doubt that we have so many people here on tFS, who bought a dozen items from some collection. :p It's a misguided purpose of previously defined topic IMO.

the new title reflects that.

i think there are a lot of people on TFS that have bought multiple items from one collection. a lot of people have very narrowly defined interests.

and its a little mind boggling to think of how many pieces i own from some of the designer collaborations ie with H&M and target.

we have another topic on what is wearable here...

I wish I could buy multiple items from my above posted collections!
I'd so wear them. The fit be damned.

I'm afraid at the moment my interests are extremely narrow ! I have literally just bought Prada for the last few seasons with a dash of Kenzo and some Louis Vuitton ! I'm afraid I am easily fixated...
