omg omg omg omg omg.... Pad, I assume you are male, but how often do you come across males who know Tom Ford and Manolo Blahnik? this is the biggest shock of my life
I also like Ungaro, a revolutionary designer now. Do you know of him?
Sally, I have to wear business suits everyday, so I have a lot of them. Mostly Donna Karan, some Givenchy, I love Armani and Brioni (but very expensive). Kenneth Cole and Oscar DelaRenta for shoes. There is a designer in San Juan, Puerto Rico who is incredible (but he is unknown), Nono Maldonado. He has three stores in San Juan and I have actually met him in one of them, and the clothes are beautiful.
I dont think Isaac Mizrahi is the nicest guy in the industry. I havent followed his stuff on the runway very much, but the last time I went to his shop in NYC I didnt like what I saw. There were like two or three things worthy of buying, but not too much. My father (who was with me) thought otherwise and loved it.
In shoes I agree with you, but I'd like to add Prada. I like their women's shoes.
My favourite designer ever is Roberto Cavalli. I really like his clothes. Also Tom Ford (for both Gucci and YSL) is very good, its a shame he left!
For bags I like Vuitton, they have awesome designs but theyre not as comfortable. And I dont like that now the LV Monogram is everywhere! even in shirts they sell in Chinatown and other places alike in the rest of the World
I didnt like the white/black monogram with different colors. I cant believe people are still buying it.
What I did like was the monogram vernis that came in gray, beige, pink, lavender, bronze... When it came out I bought a bronze one and I still use it... I like it because its a neutral color. They released a new monogram kinda like the vernis, but it isnt as shiny. I saw it last week and the gold one is really pretty, but the bags' models arent good.
