PARIS IS HERE!!!!

I love his work, and this is his best collection so far, and I actually find wearable some jackets and trousers. The structure and creative effort of this collections is outstanding.

Where he shows the men stuff???

It's absolutely magnificent. He has managed to restrain the over-the-top aspects and produce a brilliant, cohesive and imaginative collection

I would love to have a go at trying to wear some of that - it's like those clothes are asking me, "do you have the personality to wear this?" rather than having the perfect figure.

So I see a different sort of wearability in it, one that's heavily dependent on the person you are inside, not the tiny size of your thighs (though given the amount of white, that won't hurt).

Oh, okey, the grocery store I visit doesn't have big enough doors.
I do like some of the more wearable pieces posted from catwalking. I like the fact that instead of making wierd shapes just for the eff of it, but actually building upon the woman form with the exhagurated hips, but still powerful with the strong shoulders

i agree. i have to admit, i was expecting some really over the top, overly dramatic, unwearable pieces. but i think this is the most wearable collection he's done yet. and when i mean wearable i don't mean the ability to wear. i mean i feel like this collection is able to reach a broader audience than his previous collections. i bet that scarf is going to be a must have item. and that leather jacket with the black shoulders? mmm biker chic at it's best.

i also love the fact that he put his own twist on the classic white shirt. i've been seeing a lot of that lately and i'm glad people are trying to put their own spin on the classics.

his other collections impressed me from a visual standpoint but that's as far as it went. this is the first time his collection has pleased me from not only a visual standpoint but from an aesthetic standpoint as well. as inaya said, he knew when to hold back, and that takes true talent to know when to stop. hopefully, he will continue to progress.

Some pieces I really like, I dont think its anything really special or new though, and I think some of the 'tailored' pieces look really badly made. I dont think its his best show, some of his showpeices can be really impressive but Ive yet to see any of the 'commercial' pieces that dont look shoddy and naive.
I really cringe when people compare him to Galliano and Mcqueen aswell, who at this point in their careers were in a completely different league.
