    So he wants to be perceived as an artsy Helmut Lang wannabe this season?

    Both Paco Rabanne & Courreges did a 'no models' campaign a few years ago that were much better (imo anyways).

    Next season, he needs to destroy the clothes and make a sculpture out of it...
    Courreges did i better recently.

    Helmut Lang rip-off to the tee...but I was so excited to see Albert Watson's name; only for him to have shot these :(. Disrespectful in the highest when you think of some of the photographers shooting major fashion campaigns these days!

    My thoughts exactly. I love Watson, but this is so disappointing.

    The Alexander Wang 'Do Something' campaign was also a Helmut Lang rip-off and the T by Alexander Wang ads, so it's nothing new for this season really.

    I can just about take the concept. But the quotes are beyond cringeworthy. 'Drank wine, smoked weed in the Bahamas'..'No idea what time I left'..What do you want, a medal?
    This brand is pretty much a parody of itself these days.

    The fact that he even did a feather crown is further proof of his total lack of shame, Helmut pieces had the strength for this type of gimmicks but Alexander's clothes are nothing but sad rags.

    I think they didn’t make any money from the collection which was over 1 hour late from stated show time. The clothes didn’t save the waiting time. I vowed to never watch his show live stream again. It was $hit with a capital S.

    I love the concept. Very creative and unique. The graphic design and the typography are great. Flawless campaign. Don't hate what you don't understand.

    No one gets a patent for showing no models in a campaign. Get used, it won't be the last campaign with this concept that you are going to see. Bye, bye.
