    Wow. Can't wait to see more, it's like PH without the elitism and overall badness. Also, I don't quite know why, but I love the models. Their energy is really different from what one usually sees in runway presentations.

    oh wow they cuts fit way better than the photos on hangers would suggest, that is some amazing styling. there is a sharpness to the old-world references that really makes it stand out

    Amazing. The garments look so gorgeous and the presentation combined with styling is just something else. I absolutely love it. Definitely brings out Geoffrey's inspirations. Can't wait to see more and hd photos.

    Never tell me the backstory doesn't matter.

    Knowing GBS's values and beliefs is essential.

    Wonderful show.

    Yeh? just wait for the prices on those badboys.
    just teasing.
    it looks very interesting indeed. i hope that the talc is talc, not dye, since if it is "compulsory" it might be a bit too much. the donkey jacket/jeans/tan shoes outfit looks spot on.

    Love pretty much everything except the shoes in the last fit. They are definitely out of place. Ace.

    The dust is indeed talcum powder, or at least something like it, removable that is........
    I was at the show, and have been to quite a number of them, and this is possibly the most moving I have even been to, started a little late and ran long but that was besides the point.
    The show was about soul, humanity, the spirit of progress real values, believing in something truly within ones heart rather that just being someone of the surface......striving for an ideal

    I was taken at least in my mind, to a time, when lawyers worked in the town square, and knew their neighbors , when they may have written letters in their own handwriting for people they know rather than for purely monies paid to them.
    When doctors actually made home visits with lanterns, because they believed in service,
    When a black man in America was struggling to find his identity in an environment unfriendly to him, without losing his soul and comported himself with class, intellect and dignity in order to be seen as a real human being.
    When women were virtuous and worked hard alongside men with their hands in order to build families and stable homes for their children
    When people sacrificed themselves and their lives for the common good of everyone, with the true spirit of community........to build a nation and break down barriers without thinking only about themselves at the expense of everyone else........when people "believed in the "IDEA OF AMERICA".
    For me it wasn't just about the clothes It was about humanity, it was about heart, passion, and now coming together as human beings and sifting through the mess of a world we have created to restore dignity, fairness, progress and real values to our society before we all collapse under the weight of the mess of modern civilization and the greed of evil men who have developed schemes and tactics, that have manipulated the economy and the word for their own selfish gains without a care in the world for their fellowmen.......

    I still remember in my head "this land is your land, this land is my land, from California to the New York Islands.......this land was made for you and me".......

    reminded me why I left Jamaica and made NY my home....

    they look like working men and women, makes me think of the importance of being able to do things with your own two hands.

    Lovely presentation and I really enjoyed the styling for the pieces.

    I noticed the continuation of his "sack coat" cut but some of the other jackets/blazers have a slimmer, more fitted look to them with slimmer sleeves as well which make them more appealing to me.



    To me his 3 piece suit is still the standout, distinctly GBS look and done in this fabric is really something to behold.



    This is also fitted beautifully and matching the buttons in color instead of using contrasting buttons gives it a more modern feel while still retaining the GBS aura.

    Well done Geoffrey! I can't wait to see more official photos and the detail shots as that is where the magic lies!

    Thank you for that nice review. Seems like it was truly something else in terms of a fashion show. Hopefully there'll be a video like with the logomania revisited show.

    Yes, thanks for the review. Makes me regret not to be able to make it to the show nor to the showroom once again. Geoffrey's work is probably the only reason left I would make the effort of coming to Paris during the Fashion week, if I had enough time and energy.

    The collection looks really great - I am quite certain talc is just here for the sake of the presentation. Knowing the way GBS makes his garment, it is bound to be spectacular up close. I would die for one of those suits. I wouldn't need anything else for years. What a great achievement : creating garments that will make you stop buying clothes compulsively.

    Thank you so much Faust and Oskar.
    If the images are anything to go by it must have been THE show of the week.
    To call it a show though does not seem to do it justice - a combination of art/ philosophy/ design/ theatre/ literature ( the Steinbeck reference is perfect). I just wish I could of been there.

    I kind of wondered why there wasn't a discussion of this show in the seasonal thread but it's nice to find that people are giving it proper attention. I just happened to stumble onto Faust's review on SZmag and got really excited about it. I wondered how this concept would be received but it looks like the work was just as powerful as the message and I always love to see someone inspired by something enough to let it influence the work.

    I also like the slimmer arms in some of the jackets...you can't just recreate this look without updating it with personal touches and that's what looks like happened here. I even like the powder as a touch of personality to the overall presentation. It does conjure up this idea of the working men and women who toiled and fought to keep themselves going when the American dream was still alive and there was optimism amidst the tough economic mess.

    That's one element of everything that has deteriorated...the hope of better times ahead doesn't feel very prevalent. I imagine it's easier to scrape by if you have faith in your fellow countrymen and leaders. I have almost no faith in any of it and overall am pretty convinced things will turn even more sout before they improve: more war, more lies, more hypocrisy from those elected to lead, more corruption, more excuses, propaganda and fear.

    So it's nice to be moved for a change where the impression isn't just simply aesthetic. Obviously want there but it brings to life this idea that a presentation can be much more than the simple catwalk and techno music.

    I'm not familiar with whether or not he does footwear...the sneakers were definitely breaking character but I really liked the shoes. I think that period is defined by the footwear, the hats, the rich textures...very well done.

    Hope to catch some video of the whole thing eventually.

    I think most people are just plain uncomfortable discussing politics with relation to fashion. Politics usually don't enter the fashion narrative.

    I can understand that. Especially with something like OWS or the economy, which has divided so many people. I'm in a similar situation as an artist...one part of me feels it's mandatory to point out the absurdity and inequality of everything in America and the other half realizes that I depend on corporations for some of my commissions.

    I was quoted in an online article last week saying something that I wholly believe in terms of government and business and I ended up scrambling to get the editor to change it because a company that I sometimes work with was mentioned in the article.

    And with something like high-end fashion, you risk offending many of your customers when you take a specific stance. The wealthy in America are really the only people buying anything high-end. Especially something like clothing at a time when a lot of people are having problems just paying utility bills and buying food.

    So I can understand why discussions like this are taboo in an industry driven by wealth and luxury. In the creative fields if you piss off the wrong person...literally just one person, it can affect your whole career. So a lot of people are forced to keep their personal beliefs to themselves in fear of offending potential customers and/or the wrong people.

    In the case of this presentation the best part was that it doesn't appear to be forced or insincere. It wasn't grandstanding...wasn't too much or too little in my opinion. That makes the message and the work more legitimate in my eyes.

    itv was a powerful show, by a man of deep convictions

    and I perfectly understand your position, but sometimes one has to be honest with themselves and then world, but hopefully we have the wisdom and tact to show that it is in carrying about mankind that we express certain perspectives


    As for the footwear, i think its for a specific clientele but he does footwear
    I cannot comment on the shoes because i don't own any, but the sneakers made from recycled leather are really good. I own a pair, simple but interesting, and very comfortable. i have been wearing mine everyday since I have been back in the US because they are the most comfortable shoes I now own..........
