this might sound like an odd thing to say...
but i think i might actually like his work best in photographs...
or at least in a particular environment...

they have such a quality about them that is of a particular time and place...
they seem out of place in a cold, crazy, chaotic place like manhattan...
they really cry to be in the countryside...
or at least in a european city...
imho...

thanks for those last images runner...
the pic in the distillery is great...
it almost looks like it could be 1930's france to me...

in the original scenery his creative mind pictures at the root, there is life of native americans.
though it seems that it metamorphoses, by the time it is materialized as a product, to something that could look like it belongs in some european countryside.
in that case, what I think of is fabre, the entomologist.

you're welcome softgrey
will scan the distillery images later.

thank you for the explanation runner...and for your point of view...
...

very interesting...
i had not heard of jean henri fabre so i had to look it up...

the reference is excellent...and the image you posted, lovely...
i can actually imagine someone wearing these pieces whilst chasing insects...
perhaps carrying a butterfly net...
and then writing a book about it...
it fits perfectly...
:p

*i found this bit particularly fascinating and charming...
i think i would like to see a film or video like this...

Quote:
In one of Fabre's most famous experiments, he arranged processionary caterpillars to form a continuous loop around the edge of a pot. As each caterpillar instinctively followed the silken trail of the caterpillars in front of it, the group moved around in a circle for seven days.

thanks for those pics runner...!

well well...
they did such a nice job in those pics of making the clothes look extremely wearable and less like a costume...

i was just looking at some stuff in the shops and thinking how amazingly well they are made and how i don't think i would ever be wearing any of it...
maybe that isn't true, though...


i like the jackets and the tops...
i never really get tired of a good henley...
:p

I known / seen and own along with my girlfriend many pieces of harnden.
But well made is not exactly a way of describing his work i would say.

It certainly is made with a different approach to anyone else which contributes to the whole look and feel of the garments. But the seam/stitch work is very poor, buttons often come off, button holes are opened in a very rough way, there are far greater quality shoes out there. However i feel all these issues he chooses to reject or ignore.

The first coat and the second mac are beautiful (the 2nd mac i think is new, something i haven't seen before) the rest is very similar to previous collections/buys ; he never changes (nor should he).

On a different note, to make Harnden wearable the easiest way is with denim, his fabrics seem to work with the weight of denim.
