This collection is definitely CDG Homme Plus, JuiceMajor....Galliano would be MUCH more theatrical. This collection is very str8-forward and simple...no need to put on a 3-ring circus for fashion.

Yep...tremendously baggy/wide trousers...I knew I could smell this comming from my fashion-forecast.

Leave it in the hands of Rei to do what hardly any designer is doing, nowadays!!

Truly..she never follows trends....she invents them and re-starts them...while everyone else, will eventually follow!!

Considering that Rei is married to a British man (Adrian Joffe)...and the buzz in England right now is all about the future royal wedding of one of Prince Chales and Lady Diana's sons...I was under the assumption that Rei's new collection would be based upon something more typicly British...such as varsity/college pieces...houndstooth-checks, plaids...anything relating to classic British tailoring...such as Saville Row or Harris Tweed..but THIS collection/presentation was TRULY....UN-PREDICTABLE!!

Some of the pieces seem to to be made from a dark-wash denim??...Especially the wide trousers, or some of the sleeves on several jackets.

The embroidered jackets are spectacular....as are the flower-motif brocade pants.

There is a VERY relaxed-elegance to this collection...but not too elegant to be seen as up-tight or stuffy. There is also an element of youthfull-ness to this collection...as seen in several of the printed t-shirts feature the rock-band U2, for instance.

Perhaps I could refer to this collection as "Elegant Grunge"???

The long overcoat section of the show left me a bit un-thrilled...but it grew better as it progressed.

The shoes seem to be re-copies from her all-black collection from Spring 2010...the leather and suede patchwork boots/shoes. I was expecting something a bit different...or shoes that are a bit heavier and chunky, considering it's a Fall/Winter collection.

Some of the jackets appear to be reversable...or simply styled that way. Regardless, they're truly desirable in/my opinion.

I haven't read any commentary from any fashion journalists...but I'm anxious to read her inspiration.

Aside from the long overcoats...I'd personally wear EVERY piece. The ruffle-trimmed shirts....the jackets, the pants, the t-shirts (which could be easily found, vintage), the 2-tone wing-tip shoes, the long skirts, etc etc. I'm fonding over ALL the aforementioned pieces...and I love the baggy-roomy and comfortable silouette!!
