    Lovely spectre imagery on those pieces. A bit too simple for my taste though...unlike those skeleton pieces :D

    Sorry, no. I get the feeling that my knowledge of Chalayan isn't nearly as encyclopedic as you might think. :D

    Curiouser and curiouser...I could have sworn that there was a completely different store in its place - I guess that was about 3 months ago now. And you can imagine my surprise, at the time...Well, seeing as you were just there, I suppose the obvious conclusion is that I must be either mistaken, or delusional - glad to hear it. :blush: :D (Btw, is the store still called Onward, or have they changed the name to Via Bus Stop?)

    And thanks for posting those pics, nqth! Very nice.

    Oooohhh! You just commited a cardinal sin against Chalayan by not giving the pieces benefit of the dobut on possible complex treatments of the lining, hidden details, etc. Bad boy! :lol:

    If SOHO Bloomingdale's selection of Hussein Chalayan are boring, it's more likely the problem of the way they buy it rather than that of Hussein Chalyan's design. I went to that store everytime I was in New York, and everytime I was dissappointed. Last time I was there in March, and their selections were kind of like trendier and more expensive version of Bloomingdale in..... Mall of America! The only things I found interesting were some pieces from Ermanno Scervino and Collection Privee which were outrageously expensive. The Viktor&Rolf they bought were like Banana Republic, and Comme des Garcons Shirt were like Gap, it's just unbelievable.:innocent:

    And normally I would but for the same reasons I see alot of reservation about Branquinho Homme,overall it's just basically dull:ninja: :P

    Haoshcn,we are talking Bloomies though. This is the major pit-stop for most every cheesy Middle American tourist that goes to NY. I think next time you should head to Barney's...they sell Chalayan,non?
