I consider myself to be a fairly articulate man (though I certainly inflict a world of wordy horrors on my readers…), but there’s little to be said about Lie Sang Bong’s F/W 2011 collection, which recently showed in Paris, save for:
DAMN, THIS IS GOOD.
A rare moment of colloquialisms, but, really, the rest, about the tailoring, the silhouettes, the leatherwork (yes, this is bordering on an obsession for me, of late), is all supplementary. And, having seen it in person (and used it in a recent editorial shoot with Ms. Nastasia, about which you’ll hear more later), I can say it’s every bit as cool as it looks.
Now, riddle me this: why isn’t this collection sold in Boston?
