    Does this mean we'll get to see a collection?????? If so, I can't wait.

    he is sweet

    I love that his clothes are chic and sexy but also creative and intellegint, it seems hard for many designer to achieve that.

    I didn't know he sold his business to Prada. His sales doubled, wow! I guess his (prospective) clientelle is much bigger than he had ever suspected :lol:

    yah....i didn't realize that he had sold 100% of the business...but it does explain that he has become more visible and why his accessories are everywhere now...

    the shoes have been incredible for the past few seasons...the clothes too...but the prices... :ninja: much as i love him...they are extremely high...but i'm glad he's doing well and seems quite content with his situation...i hope everyone can achieve this... :flower: :heart:

    He's incredible. So influential but nowhere near receiving as much credit as Karl, Valentino, and the rest. :censored: He would certainly deserve it. Alaia or nothing!

    Yea, the prices are cwazy, I was considering what I thought was a shirtdress for my wife last season (retail $1000), but I was told that it's a shirt. Damn, it's only cotton, albeit exquisitly made...
