    Btw i Do think In Russia we also have some selected items @ Le Form boutique. But I highly doubt that they stock the latest collection)

    The items are in fact worthy of all they cost!
    a friend of mine wears lots of items for years and they do not become oldfashioned, spoilt or whatsoever.
    The look is raw but f.great!

    Yes, LeForm is a known store here, but only by their website. What else can you tell us about it?

    BTW, welcome to tFS, love the avatar :lol: .

    Thank you :wink:

    People really dont visit LeForm that much as they visit other fashion boutiques. But if you are really into Dirk Bikkembergs, Mauritio Altieri, Panteleev Volga-Volga, Simachev then that is the rite place. And the prices from what i see and notice are not that sky high!

    They had 75% on all of the items recently)
    Sadly i spent my money on YSL and Gucci :innocent:

    Do they ever put Carpe Diem/LMaltieri on sale? (I still can't believe that I walked right past that store last time I was in Moscow).

    Off topic:-)

    Leform is small but v. v. nice:-) White, bright but comforting. Last time I was there last summer while 75% sale, nothing from Comme were left except a pair of Fred shoes. Men nad discount hall are down stair. I don't remember that I saw CDiem... clothes there. MMM and H.Lang, yes.

    James is also nice, they have a huge basement, dark and cool with clothes in hangers, "randomly" placed across the hall. The staffs are friendly at both places:-)

    Strawbutterb,

    Since there are so few stockists of this brand, specifically Linea, pretty much all the available high quality photos have been posted here.

    I will post some additional pictures for C Diem S/S 05 and some for Linea tomorrow, so
    watch the two threads.

    Its defintely not a flag-ship, just the only us retailer.
    They have some nice items, but a smaller stock than some european stores.

    Are you female, as your profile states?

    If so, The list of places that stock CCP and C Diem womenswear are different.

    I think ' The Library ' on Brompton Road , next to the Chelsea branch of Issey Miyake , stocks CCP . They certainly USED to , as I tried on the trousers with curved legs , there , a while ago .

    It's also worth checking out 'Liberty ' , since Ramdane Touhami took the menswear in hand . B)

    They do stock CCP, kit.

    However they are asking for womenswear I believe.

    So I stopped by Alan Bilzerian today and they got a bunch of new C Diem/LMaltieri in.

    They have white dress shirts in a cuffed style as well as a cuffless style($500ish), gray and brown long sleeved shirts ($440 or so). They carried over the leather pants and dress pants from last season, but they got this really gorgeous spring canvas-y sort of brown jacket ($1000 or so). They have one leather shirt, it's thicker than I thought it would be... I think the price was around $2450 but don't quote me on that. The zip up sweater was carried over as well and the price is back up to full retail. It is odd that they discounted a lot of the stuff during their sales, and since it didn't sell they brought the price back up to regular.

    They are getting more items in sometime this week including blazers.

    I'm starting to like this brand!

    No Linea, at Bilzerian, Sayan.
    I don't think Altieri would let them carry it.

    Raijin is right, no Linea. Just LMaltieri and Carpe. They only had the long sleeved jersey style shirts, and yes there was one pair of the linen pants.
    I wish they weren't $1000 for the pants. I do want to purchase a tee though if he gets them in.

    Apparently during wintertime Bilzerian stocks hats and gloves (he says around $250 or so for the hats). I'ma pick some up for next fall winter!
