    He's ok. But sometimes I don't understand the hype.

    i think he's one of the first people i really thought that vogue REALLY over-editorialized. his designs were never that extraordinary to garner so much attention (for a while it was every month something major).

    I have liked some of Miguel's work from time to time. No,nothing extraordinary but he had a quirkiness that I liked.

    What I don't understand is,why there's so much focus on he and his troubles when there are other NY designers that began in that same period,garnered some attention themselves therefore who are suffering now. Not a word has been uttered about the label of Bruce.

    there is a certain poetry in his work,
    i'm so glad he will be at Barney's & Colette
    without even having a backer. :heart:

    he's a Spanish designer, he needs to do things his way
    personally i find him very talented and quite underestimated :ninja:

    i agree, I like some of his stuff, btu I don't think he is amazing.

    also liek Scott* said, i don't understand thw focus on him and his troubles, may be just ebcuas he has alot of friends in high places.

    I too don't understand the hype.
    I liked his quirkiness but I never saw any real design in his work. He's much more a stylist in my book.
    For example take his much lauded Spring 2001 collection, where he blended in Polo by Ralph Lauren, Hip-Hop and the Army/Military. Where's the design there? :huh:

    thats an old adrover collection that could be very 'now' no?
    i dont mind the mix of syles, its like free style music,
    why should he had a solid theme base?
    i think this kind of mellange is more fun

    see.. i even find him influencial,
    so just pay no attention to my rambling ...

    OT: i saw sophia kokosalaki in my dream :ninja:

    I know and agree but that collection isn't "fashion messiah" material right? :flower:

    OT: You did? :shock: I saw Sophia Coppola in my dream two weeks ago. :heart:

    fashion messiah he is not, but he sure does things his own way, which i find fresh :p

    OT: i surely did (woke up an hour ago)
    we were sharing a cool hotel room ( while on vacations) and we were trying hard to pack our luggage on time to catch a plane back ..ending throwing things away, there was no space to staff all our new clothes & accessories in :lol:

    I do love that military/boy scout theme he had that one collection. Like that suit Kim Peers is modelling. :heart:

    I don't really mind that he's not trying to be overly innovative. One can only do so much anyway. He seems to be expressing himself inspired by what's already out there. And I think that precisely his aesthetic. As far as the clothes themselves,he looks like he cuts a mean trouser! :p

    lena...if i'm not mistaken...the article says he's going to sell at Bendel's not Barney's...(did i miss something?)...two very different stores... ;)

    i'm sure he's a very nice guy and i am glad that he's doing ok...but i don't think he has any special talent...imo... :flower:

    I'm happy he surfaced ... what happened with his collection right one time with 9/11 and the theme of it it's a clinical case of the worst timing ever!
    I'm very happy that his bussiness is picking up.
    I'll have to admit I was a bit surprised in the beginning about how much attention was drawn to him .. but from the SS01 collection I only heard praise ... and I even saw "copies" of his Marlboro top -from that season- in HERE! :shock:
    I dunno ... I think that somehow he stands out in the NY fashion scene (but that's MY interpretation) ... I could even say he's got his niche ...
