For as much weirdness as this guy brings with his contraptions,the clothes apart are exceptionally wearable. The structures alone are quite lovely to me.

These clothes could have been "IT" five years ago. Luckily, not anymore...

I think he's been doing this such stuff for years now. But on the lines of commerciality,however,it appears as if these clothes are a tad easier to grasp than ever.

seems inconsistent...like many of the avant garde club...but there are a number of pieces i would definitley wear...

and excuse me...but if this look is so 'over'...then how come i never see anyone wearing it and really never have...this look never seems to have caught on as far as i can see...so until it does...i say keep going...

I agree.

And to be honest I really don't find it to be that avante garde. Maybe I look at too much japanese street fashion.

its not 'over' like 'common' it's more like done before and done since a very long time...

anyway, just my view on this

the "over" argument sounds a bit like a put down to me. i don't think one particular designer should be held responsible for the fading of deconstruction in fashion. BTW what exactly did suzy menkes mean when she wrote about "the end of the ugly aesthetic"? isn't it a bit nazi of her since what 's ugly to her may just be gorgeous to me...
i met C-W this spring while he had a show in Moscow and let me tell you that was just stellar. The clothes range from couture to comfy basics. I've been following his work since 99, watching it on the telly mostly and I love the consistency and how he works with the military themes that are very personal. i mean yeah the tees with bullet holes seem a bit silly now but he explores and evolves. with the medieval weaponry and that dark "i'm a poor 15th century boy" look i think that is quite the shift.
as to the design becoming easier to digest now, Scott couldn't be more right. I think has to do with the fact that his assistant Maria worked for huge brands like filippa k and brings some of that sensibility into the work.
and i saw this one wedding dress they made for a client in London that is incredible and sends out a most poetic yet very powerful image. sorta like a rose made out of steel.
what i really implied when i was writing this onelongassentry is that if you look closer to the work of one particular individual in fashion and compare it to what others are doing you might just spot why he's been around for quite a long time and may be appreciate the upside.
*Scott i'm sorry i'm such a horrible panpal.I love you nonetheless.
k
