This is an interesting take and I certainly don't read it as a negative comment - maybe PdN is more Charvet shirt than a Yohji, Margiela or the deconstructed CdG look etc. There is something a of reigned in classicism, even with the two or three orientals, that can feel reassuring some days OR a bit too low key others. One thing PdN is not
is cute or gimmicky, and that suits me fine.
