    Skin tight ("body waves" :), over-sized sweater and sharp coats.

    I'm sure you could use the "body waves" as wet suits. Nothing more practical than that under water ;)

    As Lena said,I love the capes and the jackets. Unfortunately,this is not Raf's best collection overall. In fact,I'm quite disappointed. Wetsuits and oversized sweaters? Is he going for a Southern Cal beach bum style?

    A lot of this stuff is typical Raf and it's nice, but it somehow lacks the poetic, narrative touch that usually pervades his work. I'm sure the jackets and oversized sweaters will sell like hotcakes.

    i am so reminded of balenciaga fall winter 2003...

    all of this playing with proportions isn't appropriate for menswear

    LOVE THIS , nqth :heart:

    I have the Issey Miyake hooded cape from a/w 01, that you can covert into a short ' jacket ' with huge batwing sleeves , by buttoning the bottom of the cape back inside .
    This looks to have the same feeling :rolleyes:

    Thanks for the post
    KIT ;)

    That's the main reason for my disappointment.


    Why do you say that Mike*. That's what made Raf so interesting to me over the years,is that experimentation of volume and proportion.

    regarding proportions:
    its just the wetsuits that are wrong, the coats capes are good enough to make up for the silly tights, maybe he had no time or money to produce real clothes under those perfect overcoats :unsure:

    regarding Balenciaga:
    :huh: i cant see this at all
