    perfect balance of structure and drapery, and finally clean enough . like Anns stuff but surely more wearable (for small guys) .this is nice because with ss11 i started to wonder whether im too old to wear Julius ,,

    seriously blown away. thank you so much for the amazing shots Arto - the textures are beautiful.

    This is a much more mature take on _7's usual aesthetic imo. I felt so weird viewing the fw10 video again straight after this. Chalk and cheese.

    I'm absolutely blown away here. This is the exact direction I was hoping Julius would take with this collection. They reached a whole new level with this collection. I'm actually a fan of the FW2010 collection, but this was a more mature representation of the garments, and the lack of over distressing I agree is quite refreshing. It actually reminds me a lot of Crust 09.

    nahhh ur rite i see small elements from those designers in this also but for w/e reason when i look at this i still see " julius " . i dont always feel like this lines stuff is rly all that original per se but even if hes takin his inspirations from others i look at his stuff and still see it churned out with his vision imprinted on those ideas

    it's the perfect example of that you don't need to be unique to be good. I like this, in spite of it's derivative nature.

    Holy sh-. The silhouettes are mind blowing. Elegant, refined yet edgy. Either I'm still drunk from last night or this may be one of the best collections I've seen.

    I definitelt see similarities with Crust 09, but that doesn't detract me from appreciating it at all, since it still is very much in line with Julius's own direction.

    Totally agree with Kunk's salad observation.^
    It's arguably a very japanese take on those designers in the same way that Flower Travellin Band is a very japanese take on Black Sabbath, but still.
    I also agree with Heirloom to a certain extent. I *like* it fine, as it resembles things i've worn/loved forever now..
    But I'm just not completely psyched on it in general. It's more mature and less cartoonish-ly apocalyptic than previous collections, but I just can't get on board completely.

    This is julius but there is definitely a discernible evolution between seasons. The mixture between draping and sharp tailoring is pulled off flawlessly. The leathers and accessories are clearly julius, but different. The wool/cotton coats remind me individual sentiments fw09/10 (or maybe i'm thinking ss 10? either way, this is another excellent collection from a designer who continues to have a solid aesthetic vision while maintaining gradual transformation.

    on a side note, you seem to be somewhat silent on RO. Impressions?

    I just scrolled through all of that staring at their feet.
    This future-footwear just future-murdered my future-wallet.


    Feels more confident than previous collections - like he doesn't have to scream "DISTRESSED! FUTURE! PUNK!" anymore.

    A very solid collection from Julius that displays further refinement and a touch more austerity. Good styling too - this is how you do shades of black. Found it interesting there were lots of longer jackets/coats with square bottoms and layering to achieve a 3 block silhouette.
    let us raise a toast to ancient cotton, rotten voile, gloomy silk, slick carf, decayed goat, inflamed ram, sooty nelton, stifling silk, lazy sheep, bone-dry broad & skinny baffalo.

    One of the things I've liked Julius for in the past is the masculine/military edge/influence. I'm probably more conservative than the average SZer but I find the flowing/drapey thing to be way too explored already.

    I like the idea of experimenting with different lines and levels of layers but let's face it: very few men can successfully pull of the man skirt. The apron, maybe. But not the full skirt.

    I see the more masculine pieces giving way to the feminine influence and it just doesn't appeal to me personally. As an overall vision and display, it's a fine job but nothing we've not seen before from other designers. I have to agree with Kunk's salad theory. Much of the respect I have for designers comes from the vision as well as the execution. Execution here appears masterful at times; vision seems as dull as recent Raf lines.

    And if I'm going for something that is masculine that flirts with feminine, I think Ann already has mastered that without having to bend to the lowest common denominator (in my opinion): The drape.
    I'm just not buying this concept that you can wear a dress and as long as you're wearing a leather jacket and combat boots, you can get away with it as a guy or justify it as post-apocalyptic survival gear.
    And in terms of drapery and elegance, I've seen Heirloom present it better than most of these outfits. The 'man in dress' isn't a new concept; it's just that most men can't pull it off.

    Julius has definitely matured as a brand...but in doing so it lost some of the elements that I appreciated about the line. If the term, 'glunge' (glam/grunge) was ever a legitimate word, then I see it as shifting to 'glamge' where the glam part is beating out the grunge part. I know that was mostly applied to Rick from the mainstream fashion media but it seems pretty applicable here.

    Juxtaposing elegant materials in flowing drapery with a leather choker and distressed boots also seems to have run its course. As a presentation, a step up. As a line that appeals to me, several steps back. Seeing some of these designers chase one another's tails makes me want to go back to wearing military surplus at times.

    With Rick's latest line, I can see it and think, 'Amazing work but mostly not for me.' With this latest Julius line, I see Banana Republic meets Hot Topic meets the dining room tablecloth and that's something I have a hard time really respecting.
