Take Westwood and McQueen’s dishevelled, body hugging, lace maxi’s, Lang’s body con graphic sectioning, a bit of obligatory sparkle, and Barbra Cartlands liking for fun fur, “mix em all together and what do you get” A cocktail that you know, come the after affect, leaves you with A dreadful sense of fashion hangover from seasons past…. Painful to watch, painful to wear… What the hell happened this season…..

heavy metal groupie love that spike!

i think alot of this comes down to the execution....it just seems like he threw all of these things together with a lacklustre vision. it's terrible to me. and i usually genuinely like marios' work.

suzy menkes' review
Quote:
Marios Schwab left no doubt about the starting point of his collection: He put on the bleachers a book called "The Yellow Wallpaper," an 1891 feminist tract that refers to a woman's frustration with her situation and to worn and torn William Morris wallpaper in the nursery.
From that obscure reference and from erotic drawings of the same era, Schwab wove not just a story but a covering for the body that was long and form-hugging. The skinny stretch dresses came out first over jeans; then with a surface of colors and pattern that seemed to eat its way through the fabric to reach down to the skin.

The workmanship was extraordinary and the effect was mesmerizing. And just when you thought that Schwab's show this season was about only one thing, he produced a precisely tailored coat and a cropped jacket, showing them as sleek cover-ups for the drama going on underneath.

i cannot believe suzy has such blind faith these days. one would expect real criticsm from her rather than some pathetic lamenting....and lately she's been doing exactly the latter.

First that review for Kane's collection praising the subtle elegance of it all, now this one extolling on the workmanship?

Has she been inhaling too many fumes from the AquaNet that keeps her pompadour up?

Do we really need a trained designer to do that, or can't women just buy their own turtlenecks and cut them up themselves when they want to look like an 80's heavy metal groupie.
