    How excited I was to wake up early to this. :eek: IMO, the tailoring was incredible and the attenuate silhouettes and the subtle colors remind me of Balenciaga. Something that masculine, like the harnesses and buckles, are hard to imagine as feminine and beautiful, but he pulled it off. :wub: I was most impressed w/the luxurious fabrics, like the felt and jersey. Everything looked very comfortable and flattering. :D

    I think they went along the same lines, but Helmut didn't design this after he saw Ghesquière's fall collection. :lol: I wonder how that happens though. :?:

    :shock: i do see the balenciaga refrence :? but i like it!!
    very "astrid" :wink: i :wub: the second row! actually i like all of it. i see a little punk in this collection-[ the straps-holes] but its understated. i would really like to see this collection up close. i like the dark colors- but they way the camara picks up dark colors - i feel like im missing something :?

    HEY you know i was thinking the same thing! like how do trends happen like that, or not just trends, but you see how some seasons very many designers do something similar! but how do they KNOW!!!!!!

    but, isn't helmut lang famous for these deconstructed angular looks? i am not sure about this, but i always thought of lang when seeing balenciaga's shows.... i thought ghesquière was influenced by helmut! so correct me if i am wrong. i might have to go back and review some of the older collections...
