Perhaps it's a way to cut cost - the shows are really expensive to stage. I think it's one of V&R's better shows - they got rid of the childish "ironies" and attempt some wit, and they stick to what they do best, embellishment. I'm glad the cliches of bows, tux and white shirts have been shelved for now - some of the layered constructed pieces are nice, though not so much the pleated wheels....

It's a shame they are not doing a runway show because this collection was pretty amazing. I really loves the shoes, jewelry and those tights.

Call me crazy, but I kind of like the video itself. It's funny, but in a good way.

The collection was a bit off, though like Zazie said it's nice to see them do something different for a change. I just would've liked some consistency, and consistency shouldn't be too hard to achieve when you're doing half the amount of looks that most designers do. If anything, doing less makes it harder to show range.

It's obvious they're not selling that well, which is why they resorted to online presentation....and of course sponsorship money from.....http://swarovskisparkles.tv/video/fa...ktor-and-rolf/

i just don't feel the same passion and art that they had a couple of seasons ago...now it seems all gimmiky and frankly unpleasant.

i'm not suprised they're not selling well.
