    Taking design cues fron Margiela and McQueen, Sweeney presented a well-styled and pretty exciting collection. Midway he seemed poised to hit an original and creative stride which, from my vantage, never quite materialized. A bit of a letdown for me, the London off-schedule shows still close on a very high note in my opinion and this designer continues to hold plenty of promise.

    the jacket and blouse in the third picture on the second row are exquisite. :shock: :wub: the cape in the top row is gorgeous, too. there's some really beautiful stuff in there. I don't like the styling of this show, though... the gold face paint detracts from the clothes. :?

    you can see a lot of work in these clothes and for most of the time, i think it paid off. the first row in both plates in beautiful, the rest of it seems to be a little 'misplaced' though.

    and personally i don't mind the golden faces, i think they're good for dramatic purposes, a little bit like the clothes...

    i find the styling really disturbing and sad, I cannot say I'm thrilled with the collection, it has a sad element, i cannot explain what I see there, but it's not for me, not now at all :?

    Too much fuss, it almost gave me a headache. :| I thought the design was too caught up w/itself and the gold paint was too much.

    Thanks for the pics though. :D

    Can we add Viktor & Rolf? Do you agree?

    I liked overall how the collection was executed ... so homogeneous!
    A LOT of designers could learn from this one!
    The thing's I would wear only some of the pieces shown...
