I often had the discussion about not having anything new under the sun, especially in the fashion context. Maybe there are eras of concepts, and interpretation of these concepts. Maybe we will have the opportunity to see real new inovtions in the fashion industry, but i would rather expect them from the chemists and the biologists rather than the couturiers..
that is true..i know there is a well known outdoor shoe company looking into nanotechnology.

runner...the cardigan that you posted reminds me of the limi sweater that also has the pockets poking out at the bottom...
and didn't comme do something like that also at one point?...

looks like this had become a 'trend' in the alternative fashion scene...
i like it...i think it works especially well in this version because of the colour
contrast...though the grey version from limi is nice too...

thx for posting sir...
i like the wide pants and shoes as well...but could never wear anything like that...i would be swallowed up by all that fabric...i would look like a munchkin...

follow the yellow brick road ....

tanks runner - this looks like a departure from the norm for Mr Harnden

I had a chance recently to check out some stuff from this season's collection in person. Coincidentally, not long after Runner added pics on this thread, a store near me began stocking Paul Harnden. So, it got me interested.

I saw and tried on the white unstructured jacket/blazer , some shirts, and several pairs of shoes. I think it is really important to see them up close to appreciate them, the way they are put together is really interesting and the quality is quite exquisite.

BUT... at least in Japan, with shoes from 125,000-140,000 yen (USD $1100-1300) and the jacket was 160,000 yen ($1500)... I can't say I bought anything. While I like the aesthetic... when I tried the stuff on and looked at myself in the mirror... I couldn't help remarking that I looked something like a Victorian age factory worker or chimney sweep. I simply needed to smear some grease or coal-dust on my face to complete the look.

All in all, with prices that high, the whole aesthetic seems to me a little too reminiscent of Marie Antoinette having "fun" dressing up like the villagers around Versailles. In other words, I don't really want to dress up that much to dress down... if that makes any sense.

I think for some people the look (also with Linea and LUC) works really well and they can look GREAT in it... but for me... I just couldn't pull it off. I didn't look "fashion forward" in it... I just looked like a chimney sweep.

But, I would definitely recommend seeing the stuff in person, if you have the chance. The "feel" of the fabrics and the construction of the shoes is really nice.

That's EXACTLY how I feel about it. And if you ever get to see Paul himself, a dickensian chimney sweep is exactly what he looks like. I think you hit the nail on the head with the "fashion forward" comment, which i think is very honest. People don't really buy these clothes ONLY for the quality - they do want to look fashion forward. The problem is that the clothes are so bogged down with referencing and detail and construction and quality that sometimes the design itself is rather left behind. In my experience everyone who I've seen wearing this stuff head to toe does look like they've stepped out of the set of a costume drama (albeit one without a good ironing facility!). I think Carpe Diem is slightly different in that it has a more contemporary outlook, but Harnded is certainly like that.

I'm glad that you agree, Johnny. It makes me feel a little better for not buying $1300 house-painter's shoes...
