it's all about the knitwear and the cutaway jackets for me...
...
and i love love love the cropped pants of course......

there are some great jackets but mostly in that print...
which are really lovely...buy i cannot imagine wearing them...
there is a cute smock-like jumper tunic thing too...
i don't know if the store had it...
i'd like to see that on figure..

*laika- is our sweater in the lookbook?
can you scan any pics?
pretty please?...



i think i actually like +noir the best of the three lines...(four if you count Y's red)

softie, what is a cutaway jacket, exactly? I always see that term and I'm not sure what it means....

Our sweater isn't in the look book--runner has posted most of what's in there, actually. No pointy toe flat boots either.

You are so right that you have to see this stuff on to really appreciate it.

cutaway jacket is sort of like our sweater...
the bottom is sort of 'cut away'...
so it doesn't close all the way down...
and gets narrow towards the bottom...


and it ends up looking almost like a shrunken tailcoat...
yohji and comme always do this sort of thing...
i've wanted one for forever really...
...

ah, ok, that's kinda what I thought. So, would this be considered cutaway then?
I have a Red Label jacket that has a curved hem in front...not quite cutaway maybe, but it opens up the way you're describing, and it's so lovely on. I can't wait to hear how you wear yours.

hey laika- where is that pic from...

i can't really see it because of the scarf...
but that looks like the thing i just got...
it's that lightweight- like a shirt almost...

i still want a real one though...more like a tux jacket...
probably i want the one you already have......

but yes- that is what i would call cut away...
though there are more variations that would also fall under the name...
but you get the idea...

It's from the 07/08 +Noir look book....runner made a thread here.

I actually love that one, but I needed something more structured. The one I got is a true jacket, one button closure with a curving hem. And it has an attached scarf in place of a lapel...looks like a lapel on one side, and then hangs down on the other. It fits gorgeously...perhaps you saw it?

softgrey I could not find them online, sorry.
but I think I know what you are referring to.
the style which comes in black and tan, and in calf length and knee length, lace-up?
also available in suede colored yellow, pink, etc as well as black?
