Here in Sweden people have been wearing them for around 4 years now. Now you see them everywhere on the streets and I'm just bored of them. But they are quite nice if you have the right body for them

Thanks for this Helena

I was under the impression they just did denim, so this is great. Particularly loving the blouses, especially the blue one in post #1 with the bow

The legs fit a bit snugger than Dior Homme jeans and the waistline is a bit higher so I can still wear them a bit lower without looking as if they´d just drop down my hips in an instant... I also just had a look on their footwear for S/S 2006 and must say there were some really good boots... very chunky, in between a riding and western boot done in natural suede - the length up to the knees. I think I´m in love also with their men´s shoes

I just picked up the Hex women's jean, and I must say these are the best fitting jeans I have ever bought. Being a small male (5'9, 105 pounds) and not being able to afford Dior homme its hard to find tight fitting jeans in America that arent low rise or boot cut (Plus I live in Seattle, where you can wear your best sandal+fleece combo to the nicest restaurant in town ) , I'd recommend them for anyone who wants the "dior" look, but sadly cant shell out $400+ for a pair of jeans.

Yeah, currently you can only get them at Kulhman in Belltown. All of the spring acne jeans are currently on sale. Ian on 2nd is going to carry the fall line as well. They dont have them in yet but the SA told me they were expecting them in soon .

They are a marketing firm! They have tags with their prios inside em..

1. Marketing
2. Design
3. Clothes

Kinda. 95% hype and 5% really neat clothes

PIMPLES, ZITS; thats what I think of. What's the philosophy behind the brand name? Pardon my ignorance.

I like the blue blouse (first and second pic). I think it's the same as the one that Sharin Foo (from the Raveonettes) wore in a Nylon magazine.

On your right.
