    Not bad at all. Never understood why all of the NYC stores decided to drop him, AT ONCE! He seems to be the less over-sexed and more elegant than most italian designers.

    I never understood why he's so underexposed editorially and under-represented commercially. He's been churning out some genuinely good clothes for a few years now, especially with his menswear line. I would buy most of his designs in a heartbeat - if only I had a way to physically get them. :angry:

    He's another one of the hugely underrated designers out there. And at the same time we see labels like Roberto Cavalli take off with his incredibly vulgar designs.

    I guess sex really does sell. :ninja:

    excuses but it's not a matter of sex-selling..

    its a matter of 'adverts-pay-back'
    magazines promote 'clients' in their editorial pages
    and Alessandro has just recently started with adv. campaigns ..
    you'll find them mainly in Italian magazines at the moment.
    (vogue italia , flair etc)

    his work is quite nice
    (he has also done tones of 'sexy' collections in the past)

    of course you're right about the advertising...he does advertise more in european publications...but zac posen doesn't advertise, neither does narciso (and he gets covers)...proenza schouler is another...i guess the editors have their relationships...it's all politic anyway...


    but cavalli is oversexed and overhyped and... is selling very well...they don't get tons of editorial coverage...they even have to compensate by having celebs wear their stuff which then gets published...and they advertise heavily...so there you go...

    the politics of dancing... :flower:

    Softgrey....it's all about the hype
    In the art/design world....I don't know what counts more anymore...the talent or the hype.

    even though i accept the 'power of hype' i cant escape thinking that somehow it is also becoming a thing of the past.

    after all people are getting a bit bored and need -demand- more substance.
