Different strokes for different folks.
But I must say I do like the cuts. I most like the pants and they could be worn with a fitted top. Very beautiful. And I love the corsets dearly!

That said, I do really love the colours, and in many ways I find certain pieces very, very beautiful... So perhaps put together in a more casual way; like a coat paired with jeans as Susie was saying, I would appreciate this a bit more...

That' s because it' s not Yohji's work. It' s Balmain AW06 I think. At first I thought why does Valentina looks so different from the rest of the models

That coat in #11 is gorgeous!
Other than that, can't say I like it too much.

So much of what I thinks been said already, theres no point in me repeating it. All I'll say is how covetable some of the trousers are.

If I could afford it, I'd buy Yohji pieces every season just to bring some dramaticism to my otherwise mundane life!
Yes, Susie, can you please do something about your mundane wardrobe



As far as what Callidora said, she's just being honest ... I don't dress anywhere near as daringly as some of you, and I still get more looks than I'd prefer. But if I saw that birdcage corset on the street, I'm sure I'd be staring too ... and that bright teal velvet or whatever it is?

Yes that makes a lot more sense to me now...

I just looked at the collection in its entirety and I have to say my views have changed a bit - I am in love.

This collection alone was already better than all previous fashion weeks put together. Fantastic! Viva Paris!

I think I may be the only one that doesn't like it There are a few nice pieces, but most of it is way too oversized in my opinion.

^ I think that a few people have already said something like that... And I agree. Not that it's too oversized, but shapeless and unflattering.
