about homme plus, it's just a bit too labile and risky rather than not profitable.
and rei is not only the designer but also the person who is responsible for the life of all the people involved there.

Gucci in particular comes to mind. I don't see very many people actually wearing the clothing from Gucci....but I definitely see TONS of men and women wearing Gucci belts, handbags, shoes, sunglasses, etc.
strictly speaking, this is not exactly the case because rei really wants men to wear homme plus and actually produces the clothes shown on the runway and fills all her stores with them regardless of whether or not they sell ( also at the showroom seriously tries to sell them to the buyers, that is, the stores others own and run ).
I'd say this is not fake nor mere vanity. this is different from thom browne.
but, as you say, most men wear basics generally, even if some of them secretly want to at least try on something new, free. it's this kind of situation that she has been trying to change. in this regard she is incredibly serious. so she must at first prepare reality (instead of runway fantasy) for your experience and then be waiting for your visit.

that's why junya stands by her stably.

Trust me, RUNNER....I know very well how much how the business at CDG.

I work here at a boutique on Newbury Street in Boston....and along with the owner the store....I go along with him to do the buying for our store.

At the showroom, practically every piece from the runway....and also some pieces not shown..... including shoes and accessories are available for purchase.

I also him my boss with the buying of Junya Watanabe.....amongst several other designers we market in our store.

The name of the small boutique is called Riccardi.

Whenever were on a buying trip.....we all have to decide which pieces will sell in a city such as Boston. Basically, "knowing your market and clientele."

A client in NYC is most likely going to be more responsive to a Garcons pieces that is considerably less conservative than someone in more conservative Boston.

It's a matter of trying to get our customers and clients more comfortable with what we have to offer from the designers we have.

mike- as a retailer, i would think that having a collection that is so easy to wear (ie:SELL) would not exactly be something to complain about...

and i don't think we can fault Junya for being 'too Junya'...
it's his design language and as far as I am concerned he expresses his point of view beautifully using the language that he has developed and refined throughout the years...



i'm not sure the world is looking for brocade or tapestry jackets just now...

although I don't know how your city is conservative honestly, I think she is fortunate and grateful for your introducing her clothes over there.

if the pieces used/shown on her runway are 200, the entire collection for one season consists of 600 approximately, since each style could have a couple of variations (moreover, another couple multiplication considering color variations etc). they all basically go into production. putting her belief into practice requires intuition in the right brain and method in the left.
