the collection sucks, sorry guys, but those stupid glasses are horrible and the whole figure looks soo immature...
apparently this is the first time you saw a picture of V and R in real life? It's their own glasses, that's what they wear every day and not something they wear for the runway especially.

I don't like this collection, it's cheesy. But, the tailoring looks VERY sharp

Not keen either I'm afraid. The shapes are OK, like the slightly baggy trousers with narrower tops, but it's quite "prissy" (or cheesy as Faust said). Plus we've got the jacket and shorts look again! Why why why? They've always modelled thier own menswear haven't they? I actually think it's slightly ego-maniacal to do that. I also think they see themselves as a bit of a Gilbert and George for the fashion world - it's the same idea of self-exponsure in thier own work. So I think even the presentation is a bit derivative.

i'd never heard of gilbert and george until my most recent trip to london when i saw something in the tate modern...

i thought it was quite clever and fun...this definitely does remind me of that...but i like it...

this is wonderful
not as interesting as the women's wear, but definately clever.
Who carries their women's line in NYC, btw?

Exactly my feeling. This is definitely the worst I've seen. Too literal. But of course,they always seem to redeem themselves with their cutting skills. This time,unfortunately,its not enough.

Just when they lured me back in too!!

Yes, thats the first time I saw their collection. But I didnt hear ofthem before from anywhere... I think I didnt miss much from those baby-loser-glasses look...

absolutely
and i agree with softgrey, its a wonderfully clever marketing concept
lovely collection, very down to earth and fresh.

Also surprisingly 'alternatively masculine'
if only i could afford, i'd love to buy some for a friend

I love what V&R designs for women but their menswear are a bit plain and geeky. I wish they would apply their avant-garde, outlandish idea for men too. Something original and crazy...I liked the suits from this collection though

Awww ... Lena! Always honored to be your friend, but you dont have to splurge on me! One day i may borrow one of your messenger bags, though!

And I agree with softgrey, too ... V&R's vision seems to be unaffected on the -sometimes difficult- transition/transalation from womenswear to menswear
