    these are the indie multi-designer boutique buyers,
    most 'big names' have their own shops so they dont sell much
    through multi-designer shops ;)

    Is this really based on sales? Rick Owens? I would have never imagined he was selling more than some of his peers who are not even mentioned.

    If you read the UK fashion press , SCOTT :flower: , Rick Owens is the ' happening ' name , at least as far as menswear is concerned . :p

    Browns and Harvey Nicks etc etc , sell out within hours of the latest collection hitting the shops . :eek:

    It's that LA thing , I think !!! ;)

    KIT :innocent:

    Le Form said that:

    Twice in a year the professional French Journal du Textile interrogate the buyers of the most known and "advanced" boutiques in the world to reveal a score of most creative designers and brands. At the beginning of the year 70 buyers from such shops as Galassia in Rome, L'Eclaireur and Onward in Paris, Too-Much Createurs in Geneva, SN3 in Antwerp, Kokon to Zai in London, and also Le Form in Moscow have taken part in this interrogation.

    I also remember that I read (in the middle of 90s) a special fashion edition of a UK newspaper (can't remember the name) at fashion week time and they also listed creative designers there. JPG, CdG, Yamamoto, John Galiano and Chanel were there too, I think :)

    Hmmmm...does this include all their bridge collections too? If not,quite a contradiction to that article I posted.

    I don't get the craze over Owens myself seeing that style already solidfied and made famous by Ann Demeulemeester.

    SN3?!?! That store is anything but fashion-forward. Are they kidding me?

    I don't know, Scott, I personally like Rick Owen's clothes... but maybe it's because it's reminiscent of Ann :unsure: ? Hmm, I shall ponder this question...
