plus i love that long t shirt dress with the blk rose necklace....is that attached i wonder.??...or is it a separate piece...?
anyway...i love that and would wear it just as is...tights and all!


* i think the video was great because you got to see details and different angles....
and so what it's only one model...???
it's not about the models people...
it's about the CLOTHES!!!!......

20 strong, well- edited looks is way better than an excess of redundant fluff...

*so glad they finally put away the ribbons and bows...
for christ sakes...we are grown women......

I want a pr. of those tights...
I think this looks great... it's really a nice return for them...
Most elegant, refined fashion they've churned out in a long time...
& it's still very Viktor & Rolf...

i love this idea,myself.

this is for all of us....as said on their announcement/mock-invite. we all wait for images to be posted to the internet anyway so this to me gives us all-industry or just mere spectators-a very democratic chance to see a presentation at once,without the elitism,the flashbulbs,the crazy bombardments.....

good for them for doing something like this. first time in ages i applaud them for doing something great.

when i saw the collection on style.com i hated it!! but then i saw the video and it was kind of nice! however i got this feeling that instead of moving forward they moved backwards!!
and i've also noticed that the looks was'nt that great but if you break it... the pices are beautiful! i guess they really are short in money otherwise the collection would have been longer.....

and as for the clothes....i agree very wearable. and creatively,it is without the disingenuine avant-garde gimmicks,finally! this is precisely who they've become,and i was waiting so long to see if they would finally show themselves in a more honest way. and they've done that here.

and the clothes,they are extremely beautiful too. i really admire the intricacy and the silhouettes....

Wasnt Helmut L who did the online video show thing first?

I remember that Chalayan did it as well with the lasers dress/vest ...

I saw the video and from the online collection videos Ive seen ... this is def the best ... its tongue-in-cheeky (SO V&R) and well .. Shalow is just awesomeness so if youre complaining about hacing just one model you can eat my shorts

Im espcially intrigued about the inspiration ... first I thought twas something out of New Zealand and after it progressed, maybe Africa? Still ... there were some beautiful clothes ... I fell in love with the golden trench coat and the jeweled pieces ... there were the metallic shoes and some white ones I really liked ... and the earrings ... it seems that Paris has beaten minimal to death ... the premise to dress for Spring 09 is "more is more"

interesting concept, wrong choice of model though...

the clothes are nice looking, but I become tired of seeing the video.

thank god, no excessive model talk.

and if they trade in full fledged shows for actually good clothes, i'm a happy camper.

I really like the clothes, but having one model is surprisingly distracting! All I can think about is how cold and empty and contrived it must have felt for everyone in that room. Can't wait to watch the video!

it's so odd to see just the one model in all of the looks.
