Your comment is incomplete without a justification or at least some sort of reasoning advyk which those brands are contrived.e, of course with respect but your chatting breeze, for now anyway. Obvs no beef mate.

I guess what I mean is it's lacking authenticity. It's the same argument with pre-distressed denim; the rips and tears in the jeans of a skater are the products of a certain lifestyle, I would feel like I was faking it if I spent hundreds of quid buying into that look. That said I'm not against deconstruction in fashion as a whole, I've owned a fair few issey pieces in my time and like all of the designers I've mentioned, I just think the extreme end of it feels a bit forced when worn. Each to their own though.

This is why I said 'when worn'. A collection of clothing cannot lack authenticity because it's an expression of the designer as an artist.

Cool Great post sayword… Interesting to see places I frequent seen thru foreign eyes. Thought they would slaughter the place to be fair. Newcastle is probably best known as a party town (fuckin divvies) and so glad they didn't hit the Bigg market etc.

you clearly do not know what you are talking about. and have been exposed. so please do us a favour and refrain from even commenting on this side of the forum unless you learn how to formulate a sentence.
