I give up...

I am severely dissapointed by all 4 fashion weeks.

The only show that had anything worthy was Nina Ricci- and frankly it was the same skirt shape over and over again. More importantly, it had nothing I would wear, nor buy.

If this is what McQueen delivers, then what can I say? The colours are the same thing he did last S/S. The Floral things- S/S 2 seasons ago- a FAR better show.

Animals? How is this relevent to modern aestecthics? He's in a bunny suit- whar is this a Homage to Donnie Darko.....the end of the (financial) world?

Alrighty then.

Wow, that grey suit looks like a very creative take on turning the human skeleton inside out. Reconfigurated, modernised and sculpted into art on a suit. I need to see the whole thing to make up my mind completely, but albeit very loud, this feels like the twisted McQueen that flourished around the turn of the century.

The yellow dress looks edible

I'm disappointed that he carried so much from AW08 into this collection...I feel like it's AW08 part 2 and SS09 part 1.

The disappointment is settling in for me already. It reminds me almost of SS 2006 where he tried to do commercial, but somehow this is a little worse.

Hmm maybe some of the silhouettes, but that's pretty much it, no? If anything, it feels more like a carryover from S/S 08 as opposed to FW 0809...

Oh and wait, it's not a skeleton...it's a cobra! Or maybe it's both

Yellow and silver dress look great, the rest looks ugly, but the setting is the thing I'm most interested in!
