Thread: InAisce

  1. #1

    Default InAisce

    InAisce, meaning "in vain" in Gaelic is the work of a designer based out of New York, Jona. He recently held an exhibition to present his first formal collection for Spring/ Summer 2010. Here are a few looks from the collection...

    J,
    was gonna post these later today but you beat me to it!
    good to see them here though............
    I went to the presentation and met the designer.

    while the work was not perfect, I really liked it alot
    the designer was very sociable and we spent a good time discussing the line
    would love to hear what other members here with a critical eye think of it...........

    I think the time has come to toss the rags in the dumpster where they belong.

    Is it just me or is it hillarious that someone blatantly took something off NAMBLA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!(the back hooks and the short coat)


    im extremely sorry.

    NEXT IN LINE PLEASE!

    I went to the presentation as well and I liked some of the garments a lot actually. Sure, it is nothing ground breaking, but one can hardly demand that from a designer who is just starting out. I particularly liked the pants and the shorts, the shirt with hooks (I'd wear it open) and the brown leather jacket - very plain and simple, but the lambskin is virtually weightless (at first I thought it was some synthetic fabric that looked like leather). I also liked the scarf - the fabric reminded me of the raw silk that LUC uses in their cardigans.

    I think the garment in question, C'est Fini is simply a shirt worn backwards (I could be wrong).

    I am sorry if I offend you so much.



    Now Id really like to know the honest opinion of DHC,HOBO and the retailers that post here..

    How many similar lines does one need?

    This style is everywhere. Im itching for it to get flushed down the toilet, really.

    Another Rick Owens knockoff




    Seriously, the fabrics look really nice but it all appears pretty vacuous as these shots aren't emotive at all; they aren't a gateway to an entire universe of feelings, thoughts, memories, desires. It's just a bunch of potentially cool shit. So I see where C'est Fini is coming from.

    I can see where you both are coming from - the planet called arrogance. I used to live there too, but I since moved to another planet.

    Thank you to both of you for being constructive about his work! It was great to meet both of you at his event. In my personal opinion, I found his work to be a great introduction for a new line in the US. It was a solid base to build off of for a first collection with some very powerful pieces.

    I can find few things here I don't like the look of. And I honestly can't see the Rick parallels here (apart from the brown jacket). I think there's much more poetry at work here, rough poetry, but nevertheless. But of course anything looks good on Antino...

    I think the only Rick parallel that can be pulled is Antino himself.

    Rick parallel was a joke

    I don't think it's arrogance, something about the shoot just looks a little too polished, clearly marketed to a certain group. Like I said the garments look really nice, but with this presentation the collection looks uninspired. Apollonian/Dionysian contrast runner brought up in relation to Harnden I think can be applied here with the terms reversed.

    rick parallels -> the model?

    You do know what kind of forum this is, right? I'm going to echo Faust and ask: do you really see this style that frequently in your everyday life? I know I don't. And these labels, philosophies, and expressions existed before you and I did; the only reason you're want it gone so badly is because you come to this site all the time and see it in pictures on a computer screen. Unless you're seeing and touching the fabrics everyday I don't think you're in a position to adequately posit that opinion. I can count on one hand the number of times I've handled the work discussed here. Every time I was impressed. Stop living in 2-D, and quit the tunnel vision.

    As for the collection, I like it. I like most of the pants. And I can't say this is a knockoff of (place favourite designer here). There are one or two looks that wouldn't look out of place in suburbia (meant here as a compliment).

    I think some more information needs to be added to the first post, something along the lines of a raison d'être. It seems that those who have a greater insight are more willing to gloss over the bad to find the good.

    To me there is a bit of a mish mash of styles there's a bit of a dickension vibe from some of the shirts while other pieces have a post apocalyptical thing going, then the coat with the hood seems straight out of a high street chain.

    There are some redeemable pieces but without insight I'm finding it hard to separate them from the soup.

    Also that first image has to go, tying a piece of leather around a waist is not styling unless the theme is cro-magnon

    Yes, this may help.

    Delueze, I don't think so much is on this planet of arrogance. I am surprised at his response. C'est Fin on the other hand, the sheer aggression you display has me to believe that this is personal vendetta. We have seen this in a thread here in SZ before with Layer-0. If this is the case (and I am not saying it is) it is not fair to the designer or the other members here. Why would you say you are waiting for it to be flushed down the toilet? That is just rude to the point of unforgivable. I think In Aisce is very promising. It is not like Rick Owens. If you really feel this way, you need glasses and an education.

    don't see any resemblence to RO apart from the model. looks alright to me based on the pics, nothing ground breaking, though I think the styling might actually take a bit away from this as its taken to strongly in a certain direction.

    To me it doesn't look like RO, more like CCP+BBS. Still, some interesting pieces.
