I personally think that the whole FW 08 season was about reviving the FW 03 Gucci woman Tom Ford had created. This is a fantastic show. It is, still, THE show. Those severe LBDs of Balenciaga, the merciless and sinister girls of Prada in their dark lace, the Lanvin girls with their dark eyes and even darker thoughts... I mean, that whole season, with its best collections, reminded me of the BladeRunner woman Tom created here with this collection. Something evil almost, austere, cold and distant, yet painfully beautiful... I don't think any of those shows was as spectacular, and obviously VERY different from each other in many many ways, but the attitude that the clothes maintained and the women whom they displayed were the same I think. For some reason, I see something very close with these collections: it is as if the same woman would buy these. You know, the designers always say they are designing for 'the strong independent woman' and all that crap (I will break my neck if one says he designs for the weak woman who likes spending their father or husband's money, for once!!!), but I feel like these clothes are REALLY for those strong women - dangerous even.
