    Default thank you again

    Dear Law, Lowrey, Voltbird, Faust, cjbreed, nic tan, and TabulaRasa thanks so much for your posts and comments. TabulaRasa thank you as well for your recent purchase, please let us know how the jacket works. I am on the run to the airport now, but want to quickly thank everyone in Berlin at Darklands and in Shanghai at Eth0s for their wonderful, kind hospitality and welcome during my visits to both (including meeting quite a few SZ members and readers along the way). I will be making a brief stop in Los Angeles at Noodle Stories in the next few days, and of course, am very much looking forward to the upcoming SZ event at Hotoveli on the 27th and my first visit to NYC in a very, very long time. Thank you all again, I look forward to seeing and meeting some more of you soon in LA and New York and keeping both the discussion and the practice of our Art alive. With deepest and kindest regards, Geoffrey for the Team

    Dear Geoffrey,

    Thanks so much for the reply.

    The jacket is absolutely beautiful in every way! And NicTan at Eth0s was extremely helpful and patient helping me choose the right piece and size.

    While I do love the summertime, I am certainly looking forward to the cooler months so I can actually wear it.

    Thanks again for doing what you do and for responsibly making the world a more beautiful place.

    After reading that I suddenly feel almost an obligation to purchase one of your pieces. You're everything "fashion" isn't and I wish there were more like you.
    Suede is too Gucci.

    Same here, I'm strongly thinking about this

    I assume Geoffrey will be speaking at the NYC event as well? Would love to know around what time, if so, as I may or may not be able to scoot out of my office early...

    He'll not be doing a lecture like in a picture above, no. Just a low-key one on one with potential clients.

    I recently bought one of your suspender pants. It is now one of my favorite things in my wardrobe. Looking forward to meeting you at the event!

    It was such a pleasure to host this. Thank you to all who came and it was nice to meet new forum members.

    It is a shame the photos are not in colour: it makes it near impossible to appreciate GBS's work fully.

    Default Reeling in jet-lag...thanks again to everyone: and now it's time for some women's

    .


    THANKS TO EVERYONE...

    for the wonderful hospitality and welcome during my visits to LA, NY, Shanghai and Berlin. To Faust, Michael, Steve, Ryan and the team at Hotoveli for the SZ event there (it was great to meet Clay, Ahimsa, Zam Barrett and so many others there). A thank you to everyone at IF as well, and to all of you who have left comments here from Snafu, Cantara, Voltbird, galia, the breaks, to even Acid,bitter&sad (I don't know what happened to your post-but thanks anyway it was great while it was up!).

    I am now back in Italy with a wicked battle of jet-lag I am fighting from an insane one-way ticket itinerary that spanned less than 2 weeks that literally took me around-the-world ... as the Italian sartoria team gets back to work on a brutally intense month that will require building and shipping some 250+ hand made pieces for our store clients, as well as the creation and development of our next women's prototype collection that we will introduce on 3 October at 8.30PM in Paris. An impossible workload, that must be done by just 10 people if the firm is to survive and continue its growth. But that is part of the price you pay for being and staying a pure independent design company in this day and age. We have no working hours, only work. And while much attention has been placed on our men's work here on SZ, we would like to make a few upcoming posts about our women's collection too, which actually represents about half of our worldwide business even though it seems to garner far less attention than our menswear.

    Here below is the Paris show video for the current AW2015 collection "forests & trees" which is arriving in stores now and is dedicated to raising awareness about deforestation and its powerful effect on global warming with pieces that represent a series of unique new techniques in tailoring that give rise to tree forms and shapes, and a presentation that pushed and tested our model team, choreography, and timing skills to the absolute limit (honestly, we almost didn't make it on this one--but that is another story and post). We will try to put up photos in more detail soon. Pieces from this collection are arriving now at Hotoveli and IF in New York, Noodle Stories in LA, Eth0s in Shanghai, Kamille in Paris, Hostem in London, Persuade in Bilbao, Arts & Science and Journal Standard Luxe in Tokyo, Raffi in Treviglio, Farenah in Sofia, 24th of August in Osaka and Permanent Modern in Kumamoto.

    Hope you like the show... thanks again, Geoffrey

    Although I planned on being at Hotoveli to meet you and also to see friends I haven't seen in much too long a time, that plan went AWOL with late day meetings. Truly a bummer, I was sulking... BUT at least I got to see the womenswear earlier on in the week. I swooned [like a tree ] over the long black cashmere cardigan with wood buttons (seen in the video) and I need to go back to try the heavy wool suspender trousers. I am such a goner when it comes to suspenders and yours are sinfully good.

    Along with Hotoveli and IF, Caryl from Noodle Stories has a fabulous selection. She has mostly lighter weight wools in navy pinstripe. She sent me the mid length straight suspender skirt ;-) in the same fabric used for the menswear line, I believe. I adore it, its unequivocally one of the greatest skirts I've ever owned, honest... its all about the FABRIC and attention to female form; the way the buttons sweep across the hips and the silk lining underneath that gives the slightest essence of structure. Its so cool!

    Looking forward to next season and maybe one day a pair of breeches if I ever get to actually meet you in person...
