Well,t'shirts have to be made well too. I think her work even for the most simple pieces are of the highest quality. Good fabrics,good cutting,a great seam work. And the hand work is an addition to that as she spends days doing it to almost every single piece after the production process. The prices are also set like that because she does small collections or capsules. The prices,imho,may seem steep but in her case its definitely worth it. Because,in the end,these pieces will ultimately last you lifetime. Like heirloom clothes.

scott...that's all true...the fabric, cutting and handstitching...but the seams are unfinished and a white t-shirt will never last more than a season as it always turns grey or gets stained...so it's really outrageous...

i say buy a t shirt at the gap or j crew ...

the other stuff is still very high...i understand why it's like that...but it makes it harder to sell... i think it's the same for veronique branquinho...the designs are very quiet so people don't see the justification in paying such a high price...

a perfect, well-tailored garment doesn't jump off the rack and scream buy me the way galliano and dolce does... i might buy it for 1/2 the price...

this is reposting, since all the posts around Monday seem to have gone.

Aww,Runner,she's adorable!

Was it my eyes,or on the listing of everything she's worn,she was wearing a Dirk Van Saene? Its the one with the trompe l'oeil ribbon.

Anyway,I really love her mark-making style. Kind of like Jurgi and his childish,nervous stitch work.

Its kind of at the bottom of the page. It looks like denim and a silvery ribbon....

That dress you posted does indeed look like something from Lutz. That or maybe Toga??
