Edit: Now I have to add in my opinion as I was speechless at how amazing this is. Except for the obnoxious headgear, this is
haute couture once again. I did not think it was possible for Tisci to top his last collection as that was perfection, but this is just even a little more spectacular. I love the fact Tisci did not make it so obvious that he was inspired by Asian culture, but yet you can feel the inspiration still. The cuts are gorgeous, the materials are luxurious, the detailing .......... this photo is not even the best and you can already tell it has hours/days/months of work.
I hate to bring in Dior on this, but I have to; you don't have to go way over-the-top to make sellable and covetable haute couture garment, you just have to be focused and creative. Dior's haute couture collection was not crazy, but it was rather lazy.
Lastly, this puzzles me that Tisci can make something so beautiful, soft, particular, and elegant for haute couture, yet the menswear leaves so much to be desired. What's going on with that ? This collection redeems him from that atrocious mess (minus those boots there, they were fantastic.)
sounds like "dirty European aristocracy".....
