    I had to check three times to see if I've spelled it correctly! What does Rive Gauche mean?

    I like this very much. It's ROYAL, you know! The colors, and fabric...royal blue, you see!!! But it's not OLD. I mean, it looks like it’s from now! It's very fancy but not old fashioned.

    I was completely flabbergasted and still am absolutely bowled over by this remarkably pretty collection. So many things were just perfect.

    I think I've been hexed. Literally, my inner lunatic spits and scowls at just the memories from both YSL and Gucci Spring 2003. In a span of five months, how did these brakes engage to suppress such venomous momentum?

    [​IMG] I have no problem with retractions.

    ([​IMG] excuse me for only a second, please... [​IMG]... [​IMG]... Thanks.)

    I completely eat ( :eek: Fine! :roll: And promise to keep down) my words from last October. I have no idea how he did it, but by mixing-and-matching or cutting-and-pasting elements from both Gucci and a YSL influence, Tom Ford rearranged things just so to offer two very separate and very lovely strong collections.

    :unsure: Hmmm... this change must've begun right around the time he
    ditched his previously de rigueur uniform :shifty: , I wonder if... :lol:

    Honestly! Cheers to him! :mrgreen:

    I adore his YSL Rive Gauche collection especially.

    To me, it outfits a lethally clad, perfectly modern weekend afternoon tea. :evil:

    Oh my. I totally agree.

    This reminds me of Gosford Park for some reason :wub: I love this movie. Sex, the time period, the aristocracy..it's all here! :wub: :wub: And the eye makeup! :wub: :wub:

    yves named it that to reflect the brand, the 'rive gauche' area was a bit hipper and younger than the haute couture area (i forgot what the name was)

    :)

    it's got the essence of ysl in it, which i am liking even more than ever (especially after seeing this)

    I really like the collection overall ... he does this thing on the bust that I hate ... I mean ... if I could just forget about it ... I would be truly-madly-deeply into this YSL!

    I know what you mean. What is Tom thinking? I didn't realize I'd miss YSL as much as I do. :cry:

    T'is theatrics on a stick. Instantly indentifiable (the genre) if nothing else. Classic attention to histoire!
