    1) Ann Demeulemeester
    2) Carol Christian Poell

    On second thought, just look at Faust's post. That basically covers it, with a few minor swaps.

    If you want, there is a book of photographs by Kyoichi Tsuzuki called 'Happy Victims' that actually is really very good, covers the Japanese fanatics of Gucci, Westwood, Margiela, Gaultier, the whole gambit.

    I´d love to see you wearing Hedi Slimane, what pieces in te collection do you pick up?

    My faves have got to be the following:


    *Hedi Slimane
    *Kostas Murkudis (very subtle detailing and ultrafine stitches, very considered colours, the finishings are just amazing and you see that there´s a lot of love going into the collection)
    *Stephan Schneider
    *Nicolas Guesquière (I just discovered Balenciaga as a label I can easily wear)
    *Ann Demeulemeester (although I don´t own any of her clothes yet)
    *Raf Simons (I wasn´t a big fan until I saw S/S 2006 in person, mayor improvement on the mainline!)

    1. J I L S A N D E R- (Ms. Heidimarie Jiline Sander that is, not the design team or whatever the crap Milan Vukmiurovic did)

    2. Tom Ford for GUCCI- He was the best male designer, and Probably female designer too!!

    3. Helmut Lang- Ahhh! the art of Helmut...

    4. Brioni- Beautiful custom made menswear. Probably the closest you can get to haute couture for men.

    5. Hugo Boss- As much as I'd hate to see myself buying anything bt Hugo Boss... I'm in utter dismay when I'm shopping and I begin to gasp at a beautiful cashmere coat that catches my eye- only to find out it is a HUGO BOSS one.

    6. Miuccia Prada for PRADA- And as I would equally love to snubb Ms. Trend whore off the list... You guys got to give credit where its due. *Darnit!* Miu Miu's done it again!
