    ok deep down, down to the nitty-gritty, who do you think is the top designer. not whose the best. but whose clothes are just the ultimate status-symbol, which designer is just..well more incredible then all the other ones?? I know how hard it is to pick between Milan and Paris and New York. so pick one for each. i just want to see what other people think. :innocent:

    Me either. I don't really know about status symbols, but I love American fashion like you wouldn't believe. (ex: Michael Kors and Ralph Lauren)

    I get shifty though. I don't think I have yet to stay with one collection from season because they just change so much and I'm fickle :ninja:

    Michael Kors for Celine (gonna miss that)
    Alexander McQueen
    Viktor & Rolf
    Costume National
    Sonia Rykiel
    Perry Ellis

    The ultimate status simple is definitely Gucci. Pretty much everyone, even the least fashionable, would recognize the name/logo. If you're going for impressing people, go Gucci.

    As for making the best impression and being the icon, being the status simple instead of wearing it... I think Coco Chanel's designs are so classy. But Coco's not around anymore... :(

    Of course... the best designers are usually less status and more style..... Ann Demeulemeester, Michael Kors, Betsey Johnson, Stella McCartney, M Williamson....... to name a few...

    Frankly I don't care, the status symbol designers aren't necessarily the best designers, in fact, not.

    I agree with SoCalled..it's Gucci this and Gucci that, Tom Ford etc.

    I don't think she was asking what designer is YOUR status symbol- I took this to be a fun silly thread with a playful spirit, but the vibe just totally went down hill... Most of us probably can't afford first run designer stuff, don't look like supermodels, and aren't jet-setting round the globe for the collections- I think this board is more about indulging the fantasy...

    Milan: Missoni
    NY: Custo Barcelona
    Paris: Chloé
    But if I hadn't to choose one by city, my election will be 3 Milan's: Missoni, Pucci and Marni.

    karl lagerfeld is probably the top designer of the moment as i see it. he has the most experience but is not dated in the least.

    My vote goes to McQueen. He's not necessarily the most recognized by the Soceity/Celeb set, but he is, imo, the best designer working today. He's nothing short of genius.

    as far as status goes

    Milan-Either Gucci or Prada
    Paris-probably Chanel
    New York-Donna Karan or Calvin Klein (pre-Costa)

    Galliano kicks McQueen's ***! Olivier Theyskens and Viktor & Rolf are also great.

    Did you read the most recent Vogue article about him? He is really interesting. I found his personal story to be a little sad too- How mean his mother was! No wonder he's so driven.

    Galliano kicks McQueens ***? I don't think so. Galliano is tired, dated and too much of a character for his clothes. McQueens is fresh, innovative and truly cares about the clothing he creates.

    I did read the article on him in September's Vogue. I like his story as well. I did find that sad that his mother was so mean, but he seemed to have adored her... the way he says she died and all.

    ~REWIND~
    I didn't really read the first post correctly. I didn't pick one designer for each and it really seems I can't. I really like Paris designers (or designers shown in Paris). :(
