Here’s a debate worth a butchers on the Kitmeout Fashion Forum about the validity of Anti-Fashion:

“is anti-fashion still a form of fashion?”

“good question. i suspect it is if you wear a t-shirt to that effect. it’s all semantics. what is the true definition of fashion?”

“a bit of a tongue-in-cheek question. do you think aliens would be into fashion? if so, what would be there fashion’s characteristics? do you think it would be androgynous?”

Armani Shirts and more…

Armani has had more chatter on the Kitmeout fashion forum than most Italian brands. Get a butchers here >

Kind of chatter about Armani goes:

“Italian fashion designer Giorgio Armani has said he always looks east to China for inspiration.
“China has always been very present in my collection. Even before I came here, I’ve always been inspired by China, I have always dreamt and imagined Asia. It fascinates me,” he said in Hong Kong Wednesday.

With the opening up of the country, Armani said he hoped to further expand his business in the mainland.

“Since my last visit two years ago when we had only a handful of shops, today we have over 30; this is becoming a very large reality and there’s much more to come,” he said.

“In fact, the Greater China market now represents even a bigger market in retail than in South Korea where we’ve been present for 15 years. It demonstrates the speed with which the market is now growing and the potential.”

Greater China – the mainland, Hong Kong and Taiwan – recorded the largest increase in worldwide sales, up 38 percent, for the Armani Group in the first half of last year.”

Levi Jeans to RMC Jeans, old and boney!

Here we take a retrospective butchers at the boney jeans phenomenon followed by Levi Jeans and RMC. Full thread here >

“I don’t think they are that bad. When I read the title of the thread – I was getting scared! Nowhere near as bad as I imagined. Suppose it’s different from the usual skulls that have been around for ages.”

Evisu, the Brand

Evisu has had a great deal of chatter on the Kitmeout fashion forum over the years. Here’s a typical post:

“pre ben sherman the brand was still raw and hidehiko was inspired t design. he then got soft with too much wealth during the ben sherman years when peter caplin took the brand mainstream. then post ben sherman the brand has moved into mainstream commercialism and has been partially devastated by the counterfeit industry and ebay.”

“evisu’s high point in the uk at least was probably around 2000 – 02 (mellennium golds). it had some limited success in the usa a bit later. insomniax has hit the timeline almost perfectly.

tom when you say “there was a period in the 90’s where it was an extremely popular brand”, could you clarify that? very popular where and with whom?

btw, are you doing personal research or research for a company?

i think there’s a wider question here: what is the realistic life-expectancy of a brand like evisu?”

Massimo Osti – The Unpretentious Fashion Icon

It’s been argued throughout the Kitmeout Fashion Forum that the days of the Fashion persona are numbered. Many of the post-print generation are turned off by pretentious fashion designers trumpeting their name across clothes and magazines. One fashion king stands out though for his quiet genius and unpretentious style, Massimo Osti – the late, great fashion designer renown for unrivaled innovation.

Here’s one of many questions on the fashion forum: “What’s the consensus on Massimo Osti clothing? Can you still buy the brand? I know there was some talk of his son doing a collection under the Massimo Osti banner.”.
