you know what...
i decided i don't like this stuff on 'caucasian' people...
especially really fair skinned and haired ones...
...

it looks too much like 'old clothes' or a costume from a turn of the century movie taking place in NYC...
...

but somehow it looks like 'fashion' on asian people...
it looks really modern and cool..
probably because it is completely out of context so it can stand on it's own without looking like it from the used clothing store...

...

i love the last bunch you posted runner and the one before...
they all look much more wearable than his earlier work...
i guess it is also the styling...
one of the jackets matched with jeans and then his shoes again...
that is just modern enough to make it not look too 'over the top'...

I have some Paul Harnden pieces and I disagree that it looks bad on Caucasian people it may simply be the Caucasian softgrey saw it on.

The thing with Harnden is the art of putting it together with different stuff to make it work. I agree with softgery that it can look like old clothes but this is when worn all together as you could end up looking like an extra from Oliver Twist.

yes, the "out of context" factor could help a lot.
in my eyes, it's very difficult over here to wear kimono thrown on, like some of you do overseas sometimes, and look good.
( for example, even this styling may be the margin of looking modern and cool, dressed down.if it goes further, it could look sloppy)

Thank you
Interesting evolution with the red and white cardigan. I also saw a knitted dress in l'Eclaireur, keeping the modesty, while moving forward with a certain modernity.

ahh...

good comparison...
which i did not think of... but is so obvious......

yes...
we do not have the same relationship with or ideas about how a kimono should be worn as people in japan must have...
consequently we can wear it without any 'preciousness'...
just thrown on casually...

:p...

I was hunting for some pointy edgy wedges or heels.
and happened to find them on sale.
so, not interested in anything but footwear then.
