Agreed. Maybe it's the way IF buys it, but I haven't seen anything interesting. And it's uber-expensive.

Don't remember, but I remember they were hard to swallow. They were in the Carpe Diem vicinity. I will look specifically next time I'm in IF.

this label makes sort of dowdiness or tackiness (right words?) one of the selling points. some pieces might be good as unaffected and unsophisticated clothing which has the flavor of handicraft.

Johnny, about $1500 for jkt, $300-400 for shirt, all hand-worked

I like that grey jacket a lot, since I tried on a similar one.
maybe its suede as well, I would love one like that or a light colored wool version

Faust, I do think you need to see the pieces in real life -
apparently at IF all the good menswear by him vanishes in a couple days.
Some pieces are not my style, but the jackets are very cool and the cut is great.

Also, runner where do you recommend buying hardnen in tokyo?
I remember you mentioning his 'sarrouel' pants, what are those like?

UA used to carry his stuff. and that was the best place, size & color-wise. unfortunately they dropped it. I think the prices are the same wherever you go.

Barneys and Space will certainly have spring stuff. maybe Journal Standard as well.
I like Space best.
the items coming out this spring are (as far as I know):

cotton knit (cardigan, shirt and henley neck sweater)
mushroom print cotton shirt
silk shirt
silk pull over
plaid suit (light yellow/light purple, purple/black)
linen double-breasted jacket with stripes (named artist jkt)
cotton short coat (named raincoat, in red & black)
and so on

maybe I mentioned sarrouel pants only in relation to CDG homme plus A/W 04, if I remember rightly.

I had thought Space was only used clothing?

Here are some other Hardnen pictures from previous collections I have found.

Its a bit funny, I was talking to one of the staff at IF and they said that the fans of Harnden are comparable to a cult. They all rush in the day of arrival and take the best pieces. I guess having around only 15 retailers world-wide or less creates this situation.

you are welcome Arturo


extract from IHT
Quote:
While names like CP Company and Prada are leaders in the technological field, sometimes the level of fabric research and innovation is far less obvious. A focus on fabric has long been the selling point of L'Eclaireur fashion boutiques in Paris. That, mixed with a desire for exclusivity, has brought together a number of little-known pioneers in the fabrication of clothing. Take the Canadian-born and British-based designer Paul Harnden. His ground-breaking work with Irish linen means that he can produce only 400 to 500 pieces per year. Thus the patterns change little, the fabrics take a starring role - linen woven as wool worsted, as cotton, as dense and shiny silk. The look, though lovingly tailored, is always creased and wrinkled.
