    Really liked it - especially the slippery, almost liquid feel to some of the fabrics. Made it feel like something even darker than Cloak.

    This is pretty fantastic and I am not just saying that because there's lots of leather in it. Gorgeous.

    this looks pretty good, I'm bummed I didn't get a chance the view the collection this season.

    I often think that the runway isn't the right place for many of the designers discussed here, but somehow Plokhov's clothing works really well in that context.

    Default Footwear!!

    I did try the boots. Cool as hell.
    There's plenty of heel on those but quoting the designer himself;
    "Yes, the high heel is a bit of a 'FUCK YOU', you know?" :D

    The coats really impressed me with not only the fabric quality but the fabric choices in relation to the cuts of the garments. There is a distinct weight and movement to each material in relation to the way it fits on the body that I never experienced from Cloak. My Cloak suits and coats are prize possessions of mine, but this stuff is really on another level.
    The designer overseeing all of the production in Italy probably helps make this big difference. Not just a ''maturation of style'' as HamletPPP pointed out, but an overall refinement from the materials on up.

    Is this a potential nod to lmaltieri, or am I just getting overly excited?

    I was thinking Coogi as well
    The apron like cuts and extended/cropped lapels are especially nice
    looking forward to seeing where he goes from here, feels like his style has aged with his customer base

    Really like this. Adventurous enough to not feel boring yet basic enough for everyday wear. I think the drapy skirts/dresses really works here weither they are paired with an equally drapy sweater or with the more sharply tailored jackets. IMHO this is actually the most successful incarnation of the man-skirt then I've seen so far.

    Also I can't help but think that this is sort of the mens equivalent of what Oliver Theyskens did for Theyskens theory for women. Just like Faust called that collection "the wardrobe for the modern woman", this feels like the wardrobe for the modern man.

    yeah, wardrobe for the modern man, leather trousers and no top, AW2012.

    ^ I was beginning to wonder if I was the only one who thought this was a bit whack. When I take apart the looks, I either see clothes that aren't really practical in a real context (the sleeveless long apron vest thing) or they are sort of mundane. Also the shiny glam rock vibe stinks a little much of Versace. Not that practicality is everything, but one of the things I always appreciated about Cloak was the believability of the looks while still having enough edge and detail to make them special.

    Mr plokhov is improving season after season, will most definitely keep an eye out for him!

    The grey, light grey and flecked suits look good, and I mean really good. Vibrant but still dark, and the proportions look sharp and comfortable without being too extreme.

    Some of the stuff though just looks awkward, I'm talking Robert Geller awkward (long knit dress sweater with leggings and leather gloves, the almost spaghetti strapped vest, and the balloon like trench)

    Also, dude looks good in his own clothes, which is always a plus.

    Touche! Although I was referring to the general tone of the collection rather then the individual looks. Obviously most of the runway stylings goal is to convey a mood rather then presenting the best possible combinations of the pieces.

    Yes, perhaps I'd style them differently :)
