No Excuses











FW 08/09

Unconditional have always intrigued me as a brand, indeed their shows at London Fashion Week are always highly anticipated. This is in part due to their energetic and creative designs, of which there are many in any given show, which have a great variation even in the singular season's collection. However what I have always found interesting is their collections are the men's outfits, which they send down the catwalk alternating with the women's.

As is usual for fashion the women's clothing gets the major attention, yet for me the men's is far more exciting. What I like about the designers is that they make no apologies for what they design and send out, you get the feeling that they have given the exact concept they started with, with little editing. Although the end result from this technique means there are inevitably pieces that I dislike among the collection, I admire the variation. It is, for me, a refreshing outlook and makes a nice addition to the shows.

  4. hmm...it's too bad there isn't a video on youtube of this show, because the models' poses intrigue me. Especially on pictures 5 and 9. It really makes me wonder what the mood board for this show was...

  7. I like the menswear more, too. I'd love to see that red leather jacket on someone in the street.

    The silhouettes are perfect.

  8. given what you are seeing in Lolita fashion as of late crossdressing I think will be more revelant and unified. of course, it is still horrifying to see someone's granpa in a moomoo in Wal-mart in the wee morning hours.

    Oh..yeah, about my friend..those were the good times. Usually, we were always out and about trying to find his sister's where abouts. She was a bit adventuous compared to us with late night coffee and soggy cereal. Of course, cookies and donuts in the like always had to be dunked in something like cool-aid or whatever. Maybe he was a bit German.

  10. I've been thinking a lot about a wider silhouette for a pant...seems about time the trend swung back over.

  16. Those are some unabashedly bold and unusual looks ... especially for the men, but for the women, too. I've gotta say that even the looks I dislike, I respect. Something about them still carries a sleek, sophisticated air that really appeals.

  20. Oh wow, yeah the men's pieces are great.
    I am fascinated by them actually.

    Oh and looks like I was already following you on bloglovin' sir.

  21. oh and duck duck goose was kind of similar. where everyone sits in a circle, and one person walks around and taps peoples heads saying duck duck duck and when they say goose whoever they are on has to get up and chase them..
    I think that is how it went.

  22. I actually prefer the menswear here. Maybe because the female models generally receive more attention so there are fewer different looks to see.

  23. I agree variation is more interesting... loving this collection!

  24. A strange direction for Unconditional...but still a great collection....
