No...they are doing a video this season, although I was hoping it would be a bit more interesting than that.

the video is such a turn off. I couldn't even watch half of it, I'll wait for photos.

I think it's just a preview of the collection since Shalom is modeling all of it... pretty sure they're having a show.

WAIT. Nevermind, you may be right...? I looked at the Paris schedule and V&R isn't listed.

I don't hate the video...the clothes are just not good...

I thought this was supposed to inspired by "Funny Face"....there was nothing even remotely Audrey/ 50's couture/ Parisian about the collection...AT ALL.

i only like the printed silk t-shirts, a few of the shoes and one skirt. v&r really don't do much for me usually.

Yep..Vogue China said they didn't have a "real" show...only a live show on the Internet...

I'm disappointed. With the collection and the way they showed it.

Its one thing to forgo a traditional fashion show like they did when they did their russian doll collection, the presentation made sense. This one doesn't seem to it's just Shalom over and over and over again. maybe I am missing something

They took the Peruvian influences of Givenchy HC Fall 2008 and put them into maximalist overdrive. Garish, cartoonish, unappealing. The whole point of V&R is to challenge people with extremes, but there's no concepts here at all. It feels like a misguided attempt at commerciality.

Hmm the video idea is kind of interesting... But I like the old fashion idea of having a fashion show... I hope showing collections in videos doesn't become the 'thing' to do in the future..

I'm not a fan of Shalom or her walk... so I'm not super excited about this. The collection is nice though.
