    Parka is looking good, the cinched pleat is genius and that grey suit looks slick.

    I really dislike the asymmetric coat/leather jacket. I like the idea but it's either the execution or the proportions of the piece itself that makes it look downright awkward.

    Looks like there are some promising elements. Would like to handle it in person though.

    The coat and leather jacket are two separate pieces, just styled together here.

    The cut of the one shouldered coat is pretty awesome, the strap is adjustable so it fits the wearer perfectly. I actually really liked the piece, but not something I'd wear every day myself.

    Sounds interesting. I'm trying to imagine it in my head but I think I'd really need to check out from the back or in person for a more detailed idea.

    Thanks Lowrey! Looks really good, I'm especially in love with the grey assymetrical overcoat with funnel neck . It has Plokhov's perfect combination of wearability/interesting details/masculinity/perfect cut that I have missed so much! Commence saving pennies.

    Thanks for the photos. The coats look great, combination of nice fabrics and sharp tailoring. I also love the grey overcoat and I could live in it all winter.

    I like the suiting and the vest that was depicted in his video but not sure about the zip-elbow detail.

    really incredible stuff, can't wait to see more of this. thanks for the preview. I love the leather and the coats and all the zipper details completely appeal to me. that first picture w/ the leather coming out of the trench is insane, how do you wear the trench by itself though?? is it one sleeve?

    ^Yes, IIRC it was styled with just a shirt under and that shoulder is exposed.

    Tailoring and tails: ah, I knew the aesthetic circle would come around again...you can always rely on Plokhov for severity, even when the shoulders are raglan. Fantastic, but I thought there was, strangely, or more likely, purposefully, one thing off with each piece; one proportion tweaked a bit awkwardly. On the wrapping half-funnel collar overcoat, the shoulders extend in an exaggerated way. The shrunken suit jacket reminds me of what Raf did at Jil when he first arrived there: the lapels and the proportions have shrunk on the jackets, but the pants have not. I have found myself unable to pull similar things from my wardrobe seasons after they are presented....

    So far, I am quite liking it. I am excited to see more...

    ^ Dude, beat ya to it . Anyone have an idea what the price points might be? Sounds like he's going luxury, so I wonder if it will be inline with the big designers, or slightly cheaper like other American designers (Patrick Ervell for instance) since Cloak originally was a bit cheaper than the highest designer prices. Hopefully it won't be crazy expensive like Ann D. or Thom Browne territory.

    It will be expensive, Casey. Also, a lot of it is cut slim, in case anyone is wondering.

    I miss Cloak so much. Happy to know he will be back.
    But after saw these designs. I do hope he could get back and fine turn his works before officially debut, These works lose all the spirit where the Cloak used to has. Just like another normal skinny but meaningless collection like a somewhere Japanese designer did. (no offence)

    It's even no way near Robert Geller's works. What a shame..

    regarding the model...nobody even notice its alien type legs?


    Hope it's just the angle of photography.

    If you are pining for the days of Cloak, those will probably not come back. The aesthetic is more mature now. But, there will still be pieces that are younger and more casual in feel.
