    hedi slimane always does amazing work at dior homme, however i am ready to see him explore different directions...maybe he will fall on his face, but it would at least let us know he does have some other influence besides the german-punk thing. i am sure lvmh has a hand in all of this as dior homme sells quite well exactly as it is, but i have confidence in hedi, i think if he went out on a experimental limb, he would still turn out a good collection. (it sometimes seems like galliano never turns out a conservative collection and hedi never an experimental)

    this show though was uneventful.

    not wishing to brag , i bought the military leather jacket with zip - off sleeves and his black combats wih matching pockets this autumn fom browns of south molton street in london . ' utterly fabulous ! ' he did some amazing things at yves saint laurent rive gauche but changed his style somewhat at dior homme .his book of berlin phtographs seems interesting , has anyone bought it ? fashion wire daily seemed to suggest tha his S/S04 collection was not as well received as the previous ones . there was a good snippet of hedi on the uk's BBC3 programme on david bowie's millions. hedi had designed a fabulous outfit of tight tailored jacket and very wide trousers which i believe bowie wore at an american fashion awards ceremony when he handed a fashion 'oscar' to hedi. i am sure that hedi will last and become one of the greats of 21st century fashion imho.

    ACID you need not worry ! that was my last leather jacket purchase ! i bought it as a consolation after cancer surgery . it will go with my REAL ysl rive gauche leathers and the best of all - my ideal cuir montana ones .as you can see i'm a leather jacket freak ! what do you think of jean claude jitrois ? he is the only one to come up to montana's standard imho. selfridges in exchange square here in manchester has a dior homme selection but it's not up to browns standard or even that of harrods. one of my ex-pupils was the first to buy dior homme for harrods . she has moved on to the women's international designer section now. i wish i had tapped her for some discount when she was in men's international ! btw look at the dior homme web page , it's recently changed and is 'supah' .why don't they have a video of any of hedi's collections on' f.men' ? it's the same day in -day out ! the women' s channel FTV showed hedi's collections for ysl. i've got them somewhere on videotape.

    Hedi is my fave too... It's getting quite expensive though. My favorite piece from this season that I snapped up, but have only seen 1 place.... A classic white shirt in canvas with a modified double collor w/ grey felt trim. The waistline is short up front and longer in the back in a fluid curve. Hedi's clothes make me feel great. It's all about the cut!

    WHEN WAS DIOR HOMME CHEAP?

    of hedi's work at dior, i've acquired one of those sleeveless white button downs with the beaded shot-through-the-heart, a long brown scarf, and most recently a pair of the jeans from barneys. even on sale dior homme is not a laughing matter.

    Never did I say it was cheap!
    Word on the street says, It is getting more expensive in the coming season... Prices in Japan at the DH boutique put the basic trousers up to nearly $1k US dollars which is absolutely insane. Lets hope the US pricing isn't the same...

    incidentally the ' original prices ' quoted on the rafaello network site are ludicrous !!! trousers shown at original price of £360 were actually on sale at selfridges in manchester uk at £240 full price LAST YEAR !!! from what i hear from my brother who recently visited tokyo EVERYTHING is vastly more expensive than in the uk and obviously the US of A !!! . that's why christmas shopping trips to NYC are the vogue here . i doubt whether you will find that dior homme prices will rise much above inflation next year. they have not changed manufacturers .it would have been reported in the trade dailies eg WGSN .

    Thanks Lena... I'm an official Dior Homme freak. I went crazy during last summers "Follow Me" collection. So many wearable pieces. My clothing $ is still diminished from it:)

    LENA thanks for your welcome i absolutely agree with you about hedi at ysl .if he went back he could design BOTH the men's and the women's collections . he was offered both at givenchy , i believe , earlier this year . BUT , no matter where ,he's THE BEST !!!!!!!
