    I acctually think that nowadays what is mainly important is the name of the brand and how famous it is. If it weren't like this I suppose this discussion would have more comments than 98% NY fashion shows...

    This is quite an interesting collection.

    The furs are so grand and they are pretty classic cuts but it looks like they are amped 1000x. Those pants and some of the textures, not to mention the hair is a tad bit YSL but I actually like the mood and feel of this collection a lot.

    The blood on the clothing and gloves reminds me a bit of Galliano but I'm wondering if with this collection it is simply paint that was put on the models hands and gloves backstage at the show.

    Where was this collection shown?

    Reese, it was shown at Cibeles Fashion Week, in Madrid (Spain). He used to show his collections at Paris, but he's come to Spain...

    I really like this collection, it's certainly not my favorite. I love some of the individual pieces. I don't like the "caught red handed" hands, but it's an avante garde show so...

    b&bofbalenciaga, you'll need to provide the credit for those images or they will need to be removed.

    Thank you.

    I love that last picture... she looks like a fashionable psychopath.
    I also adore how creepy the hair and makeup is... how that one single black eye pokes out like that really evokes an eerie mood.

    Not completely sold on the clothes but the blood is certainly eye-catching.

    I actually like some of the clothing but its hard to concentrate on it with the hair, makeup, and bloody hands. I would have been happier with a low pony, nude lips, and cream gloves lol.

    The detail of the blood was because the collection was inspired on Stanely kubrick filmography, and especially The Shinig.

    I don't really think that it's difficult to concentrate on the cloths, at all.

    I actually agree about the presentation. The theatricality is very heavy-handed and completely unnecessary since the clothes are dramatic enough on their own.

    I mean the wigs, the runway, the hoods, the printed body stockings, the blood...it's too much, and they kind of bring the collection down to a student level, which is a shame because there are some interesting/beautiful clothes here.
