As a brand Edwina Hoerl has been a source of huge frustration for me. It is stocked nowhere in North America, the fit of the clothes is too exuberant to chance on a proxy, and during a recent visit to Tokyo the collection was sold out nearly everywhere I looked. To say she has developed a cult following is an understatement, and her name frequently comes up in conversation regarding potential torchbearers of a certain strain of Japanese fashion and style. Beyond all that, she is one of the few designers that make a nice, properly fitting, baggy pair of pants. And that is a virtue to be admired in and of itself.
