what brand of skirt thing was/is Robert wearing?
« on: September 23, 2007, 05:50:47 »
does anyone know the brand of skirt/wrap around thing Robert was wearing throughout the Australian tour? He wore it over his pants, and it is black and has some clips hanging from it. i dont know if he's still wearing it now. i really  like it, but
i couldnt catch sight of the label properly, although i thought it looked something like 'Beta' something... not sure... any info?
 :D :-D

heres a pic

Dunno if these are the exact same ones, but someone at another forum found this link.

Very similar that site,~

 but not so many folds on the front, And on the left (if you are wearing it) side it had 3 silver circles- down horizontal to the seam, also it was deffinately split up the left, a bit.

Iam sure it only had one fold (on the right side)-and the right split had a large safety pin keeping it closed, ~ and moreso fold's on the back. 

( It actually reminded me) of the bottom half~ of those long tops indian people wear(with slits up sides) - crossed with a scottish kilt.

Anyhow looked awsum, my eyes hurt staring too much.  :shock:

I'll have to check out what he was wearing in Japan, Or maybe he bought that skirt/thing in Japan ? they've got lots of those awsum different goth and dark metal, and just undescriptive new designers, Yes too expensive for me too,
but awsum to look at.

(about a very cool and expensive shop)---

UNDERCOVER                 

"EMOTION !
It was hard to breathe, The shock !
The more exciting it got, the further down I went.
It was like watching myself sinking,
Not just watchin, but drinking it in with the whole of my body -
Drowning myself in drowning myself.
So immersed in the black magic as to cease existing outside it
Exactly the brainlash of a bizarre Klaus Nomi countertenor
Lapping across the inside of my skull.
It had been too long since I had encountered  Undercover
My mind was blown
Like a retread tyre.
Afterwards, just let me rest my eyes
If it is still possible
Jonio,                 --- (Jun Takahashi)
Please! "
     

 written by Take' Hirakawa
------ He wrote this after seeing Autumn/Winter 06/07 collection.  And me and friend felt the same after being in the shop  "Undercover"- Tokyo,
had to sit, and just take it all inn. Love the masks the best, wish i could take a pic of mag i got, but too dark...... I havent had time to look on the web,
just stepping out, and wanted to share that first....  -and they wont let you take pic's of the inside of shops, buga, Got many from outside though- but
not that shop   :(

(hope got all spelling correct, just in a rush)

*Imaginarynancyboy - yeh i agree,    and the one in site pic - looks like linen ? and Roberts cotton.   :shock:  *see ya soon :smth020
