    I see three that I really, really like. The two light brownish/grey pieces (jacket/longer coat) and the dark grey/black long coat. I'm guessing everything is amazing up close and in material/details though.

    i like his signature collar on the more tailored pieces.

    it's sort of a variation on the throne collar. instead of it essentially being an up-turned lapel, it keeps the notched shape, makes it cleaner, and has it create a strong perpendicular line on the upper chest.

    I'm definitely down for his creativity but I'd say his strongest creations are accessories rather than tradition pieces. Can't say I'd buy any of it and the "blind" model is very tacky.

    The blind model is fantastic.

    i like that the glasses romanticize blindness, in that it draws aesthetic attention to the condition itself. of course, i would never want to be blind, and i can't imagine what life is like for blind people...and it's not right to make light of the condition...

    but we all know the adage about squeezing lemons. instead of more anonymous sunglasses that mask the condition, why not wear these obviously opaque ones? it forces the viewer of the glasses to confront more directly what it must be like to be blind because he (the viewer) cannot easily fathom blindness in the abstract, but can fathom what it would be like to wear those glasses.

    If he's actually blind I'm cool with it. If not it's an odd glamorization of a terrible condition.

    because someone tapping a stick with a red tip in front of them is easy to miss?

    Fabrics look beautiful. Great use of gentle colour. Very nice cutting and drape.

    the model is indeed clinically blind.

    Then I stand completely corrected. Amazing.

    I have yet to see any of these goods for sale other than a visit to his "armory." I'm not trying to derail on kop details.. I'm just wondering where the market for it is.

    I don't think the styling is to my liking, but I saw the collection in person in Paris and there was a lot of pieces that I actually liked.

    I was about to place a custom order on a few things but somehow never got around to doing it.


    what I can say from firsthand knowledge is the quality of the items themselves are of the first rate order...........well made and the cuts are very interesting

    i'm not sure why you're hung up on the "reality" of his condition. you didn't know if he was blind or not by looking at the model. your desire for authenticity has no effect on your aesthetic reaction to the work.

    you're like oprah during the james frey controversy. she was scandalized that some details of his memoir were fictionalized. nowadays, most people seem perfectly comfortable with that uniquely modern blend of reality and fiction. take a look at GILEAD, which won the pulitzer prize for fiction in 2005. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gilead_(novel) . you are standing athwart history yelling "stop!"

    also! i thought of another reason that you're wrong! (haha...) let's say that the model, just for argument's sake, was not blind, and had perfect vision. the glasses effectively make him blind, so the model himself would have the experience of being blind when walking down the runway.

    this point of view is just completely foreign to me. when you go to the theater, do you have the same desire for authenticity? if you see an actor on stage who is pretending to have cancer, do you demand that the actor himself should have cancer in order for your aesthetic experience to be "authentic"?
