    [quote user="xcoldricex"]i was just wondering. did poell do any other "runway shows" aside from the mainstream downstream?

    I've wondered about that too; this auction has a photo of a model in CCP, but a straight runway show seems like such a conservative diversion...





    If the photo does represent a recent show, does anyone know the season it represents? I'd be interested in knowing whether Carol did the bee-keeper nets prior to the recent Thom Browne show.

    This
    seller just uses any and all pictures he can find. I would not be
    surprised if this is not a Poell show at all. The presentation
    looks like N(N) SS07 show, actually.

    Ah, thanks! Ebay provides for some entertainment when a clueless seller tries to dress up his wares, doesn't it?

    haha that most certainly is not poell. it seems all of his other seasons are strictly lookbook - ah i wonder what all the stores do with their lookbooks at the end of the season, should've tried to buy one from space in osaka.

    Ahh, the overlock pants! I want them in black or gray!



    The dress shirt is really nice too.



    I tried on the leather jacket at A and it was such a killer. The price though... gah, just can't stomach it!

    I'm not sure about the wires, doesn't seem like it from the pix (edit, actually maybe they do!). It's a Japanese site, unfortunately

    it doesn't say anything about wires. the gray overlock pants are denim.



    as for the reversible shirts- what's on the reverse side? anything interesting or is it just going to be an exposed seam look?

    the suit is really nice, i'd wear them with the l/s tee.they're just perfect!
    the leather jacket is nice too, but i don't dare asking the price...
    cheers, faust.

    He's done a few other interesting shows... presentations in a butcher meat locker, a show that was a "prison escape" (I think done in tandem with a models-in-cages show?). A while back he was doing some sort of showing of his designs in a bunker in the middle of nowhere essentially... I think one of the guys on tFS went to it actually, but it was mentioned on that thread over there....

    That last one was a part of a museum exhibition in Austria, where Carol is from. But, yea, it could've been a bunker!

    OK a bit of a rant from me. Not really at CPP, but the feckin Library. I was there in the summer and asked them to send me pics of LMaltieri when it came in, left number and email. Nothing. Phoned them about a month ago to get pics of CCP, said they would do it, nothing. Phoned them again this week, gave them a different email address in case they'd got the other one long or lost, gave them a direct phone number, said they would do it and ........NOTHING. Jeez, I'm practically beggin them to sell me some really expensive clothes......Bear in mind that i bought a leather short from them at full retail , so they know i'm serious. It's just shocking service. I don't actually think they really know what they're doing actually; they're no where near Leclaireur or, from my brief experience of it, A, in terms of expertise. I'm done with them now.Only problwm is I really want that suit jacketthat Faust posted. I am going to try Leclairuer now (well notnow, but next week)

    Karlo and JoJo at A are the best. If you want photos of ANYTHING, they'll snap them immediately and get you photos immediately.



    Great guys, great service.
