Black leather Geishas!!! Oh Gareth!

Also loving the electric red, his "leather lace" and the elegance of the cream looks.

Fantastic collection!

I got a very True Blood vibe from the first several looks, especially with those leather corsets. Can totally see Pam rocking those.

All I can see are flamenco pants (and sleeves?), but it's nice to have corsets paired with something other than the obvious skirts... The white/off-white corset look is actually standout.

With the neckline of the jackets and those corsets, there was a really strong reference of McQueen from around the late 90s. The references are almost too overbearing. It felt like there was no other vision in this collection other than trying to recreate the feel from the McQueen pieces that he was referencing.

Obviously, it isn't a bad collection. How could it be, since it looks so McQueen. I just don't think it's a very good collection at all. It probably will sell well, though.

Wow this is really beautiful, love the Geisha inspiration. Finally something that doesn't look like Rick Owens or is completely unwearable...

Awww, I really love it; but I am a self-admitted sucker for anything goth. And I love the clean lines, the wearability of this collection. Nice!

I want to marry this collection and have lots of babies in it.

I think this describes how much I love it and how much I would wear it. I'm really not into red clothing but I would rock those total-red outfits.

add me to the list of people who are surprised to be saying that they like this collection...
it's hard to deny the elegance of the lines and the execution...

he's really matured and shown restraint with this show...

good for him...

Completely agree, the moment he moved to Paris he seemed to force this sense of commercialism into his collections as if he were trying to rise above the fashion as theatre narrative, whereas unfortunately it was this aspect for me as it was with many that made him so appealing and gave us the desire to buy into his point-of-view.

I used to look forward to Gareth as I would McQueen or Galliano. But will now often overlook these slick presentations that do very little for me!

What is happening to this industry?! Do we now need somewhere else to escape too?

ugh, it disgusts me that he chose a point of inspiration i can't say no to: Japan and Kimonos.

i can't even hate on any of the looks! (except for those veils, which seemed unnecessary)

now i need to take a shower
