    Thank you! That was an enjoyable read. I've always wished that some of the fantastic frilly & embroidered weirdness of Jun's earlier womens' collections made its way to the mens' side.

    Man, those are great pictures, really wish I could see it in person.

    Yes, and I think there's a sweet spot of overlap between scab/arts and crafts/guru guru era Jun and A Closed Feeling/earlier Soloist era Miyashita. With their more practical and sportier directions, it seems that was just a special, unique time in Japanese fashion.

    I am going to ask Jun about this today.

    Thanks, everyone, for your kind comments about my passable photo skills.

    Some more pics from the "Labyrinth". I'm sorry for the quality.

    Faust, any updates on this? I was looking forwards to this, but forgot until now. Cheers!

    Perfect! Grading those undergrad papers can wait...

    edit: Love reading about Jun and Rei's interactions. His respect for her is immense, I remember reading in a separate interview about how she mentored him through his first Paris show and called a toast for him, and her continuing influence.

    I do wish I could learn more about his thought processes for his more bizarre earlier collections, though. Love his description of seeing beauty in the monstrous.

    Yeah, there were a few lines that got edited out which alluded to his thought process. Basically, he is like a food processor - culture comes in, gets processed, and at the other end Undercover comes out :-)

    True story - when I just clicked on the Shitbeast link, my iPad shut down.

    Not surprised they swiped it, obviously. While news aggregation is fair game, I really hate the way Shitbeast packages it.

    I think the coats are pretty nice but most of the other stuff is pretty basic and for me it could have been far better executed than it was.

    A new profile piece with original photography from T-Magazine in the New York Times. Pretty mediocre, if you ask me, but I guess still worth reading.
