Gosh, I like this a lot, but I hate the lace. Never been fond of tulle lace at all, which sucks for me but is great for my bank account.

Alas.

I feel this exactly. If this OP had torchon lace instead I'd definitely get it.

The more I see this one, the more it's been growing on me. I dunno if it's at the point of must buy but damn, it's charming.

Ugh, same. torchon lace makes things feel rich and elegant to me, unlike tulle lace, which - even when the quality of the lace is nice, just looks really meh to me.

Glad I'm not the only one. I think so about all their print dresses recently. But then they do a non print dress, add some nonsense details to it and charge 86000 yen for it. Lol, no thanks.

>>9656087
This one would also be so much better without a print (or at least the face being placed being elsewhere than on the croth).

Maybe if their solids sold better

>excuse you, my eyes are down here
>>
>>9656181
I thought they did always sell out? Whenever I look they seem to be gone.
>>
>>9656205
I'm not good at English so sorry if I said it wrong. I mean if their solids sold better in the past.
I think Amour d'amants was really popular with people who didn't used to care about Jetj so other lolitas became more aware of them. They started doing a lot of prints after that, probably because of better sales. The lolita community never seems to get hyped about solids.
>>
>>9656215
>>9656181

There is more into that. They recently discovered the chinese market and simply adapted to their tastes which is pretty much more OTT and outlandish than what we do prefer (I think we can all agree that their solids from 2006-2008 were the best and that we want that style back. I personally prefered JetJ when their dresses where more simple and affordable. But I think that there is no way back to the old price/quality ratio. The chinese are willing to pay any price even for utter crap. I just mean look at this one >>9656177 it isn't even that OTT-ish but the price tag is just ridiculous).

They also just accepted Alipay as a payment method, and that's a pretty huge fucking deal for Chinese lolitas as most of them are not fond of other payment methods and had to rely on shopping services before. All of their recent re-releases were also all dresses that were only popular in China (Carps Sherique, Les Bijoux du chat, Hospital de Sant Pau) and that no one in the west really cared about.

You can see where it's going...
>>
>>9656244
That is you then. The lolitas I know never looked at JetJ before they did the painting prints.
>>
>>9655888

I'm going to sell my soul for this dress. I didn't let myself order the Ranko dress and I still regret it.
>>
>>9657005
Maybe a dumb question but why does this cost so much when you can get Michael's Blessing rerelease which is also very nice and similar looking fabric much cheaper
>>
>>9657036
I'd chalk it up to the licensing/shared branding and the fact that they know they can make fans of it pay more. There has to be some perception management to pump up the collaboration/exclusivity factor of it.
>>
>>9657043
In my experience collabs are usually cheaper and made with cheaper material but that's from a different fashion

Honestly I can't decide if I think AH is worth the hype all the time or not. The designs are nice enough though.

>>9658082
The moth is the nicest design from what I can tell. I'd go for that if I were you, though the chokers look lovely too.
>>
>>9658082
I can't decide on if I want anything or not. I love AH bc I think the quality is steller, I just can't tell if I am feeling this collection or not. If I was going to get something it'd probably be the book and moth.

I'm with you on the Ranko dress, she's my favorite even, but the 86cm bust killed my spirit.
>>
>>9658082
Well, I ended up getting the moth ring in burgundy/wine/whatever like >>9658100
. It looks the cleanest. While I liked the chokers, they are kind of expensive for something that isn't such a statement piece.

I was a little worried about it being a bloodbath like it was when all the ocean-themed things came out, coinciding with all the marine prints. They seem to have backstock in other things though, so I'm not concerned. Especially some of the uggo things like the lavender choker should be around for some while.
>>
>>9658082
Thank you thank you thank you anon for posting about this! I don't follow AH but their last release's chokers were so cute and I was bummed to have missed out! You're the best.
>>
>>9655903
personally I didn't notice it til you mentioned it, but that might be because I've seen so many pics of stained glass windows where the figures look like that. not sure if they're old and faded or if it's just washed out from the light shining through, though.

>>9658082
I actually like the bats, but they are awfully busy. would probably go with the book myself.
>>
>>9657005
This looks like a cosplay. Not surprising considering it's a collab, but I don't know many lolitas who are going to wear what's basically a cosplay to lolita meetups and definitely not on regular days out. Weebs will probably love it, though.
>>
>>9658617
This is literally how every single collab is, with the only exception being the collabs with the outfit already being lolita themed.
>>
>>9658619
I'd say that the best collab was IW's Penguindrum collab, Himari skirt and blouse. The skirt is gorgeous in person, especially in the alt colourways. I own it in black and it's very wearable. The set's strength is not just that it's actually lolita in its own right, but also that it's a very everyday style rather than ott.
>>
>>9658619
IW's collabs aren't made with shiny costume satin and don't have derpy little mini hats, though. If an indie brand produced this exact dress, everyone would be laughing at how ita it is.

This dress screams a lot of things, but “simplicity” isn’t one of them.

How come what you like supposedly has priority over what other people like to the point where its ok to shit on something in hopes others will join your ideology?
Do you want them to not buy their dresses? Whats the goal in saying this?

I've always thought the people/ animals in stained glass looked pretty washed out in comparison to the background. Of course, it might depend on your location and pieces from different time periods might have more saturated figures. I just know the style of the cats seems pretty consistent with what I've seen in Catholic and Lutheran churches.

Some stained glass is made out of chunks of single-coloured, or somewhat patterned glass. So it's just very thick lines in between the colours, making all the colours pop and look brighter.

Other stained glass are actually painted. But, when the light shines through the glass, the painted lines will look fainter, because it's still painted glass, not lead. The actual lead lines will be much thicker, making the parts that are painted look faded when the sunlight hits the window. Why paint them instead of making all the details out of pieces of lead? Because (one), the stained glass is held together by lead, so the lead pieces always need to enclose the glass shapes. And (two), it allows for more delicate detailing, which makes them more popular for painting human faces on stained glass.

tl;dr -- glass is accurately mimicking the look of a stained glass that uses painted glass. The kittens look faded because when sunlight shines through painted glass the lines will look lighter than when it shines through lead.

right, but it still doesn't look very nice so faded

/my opinion
