It's Fashion Week In Paris And...

None of the models were harmed during the Viktor & Rolf show, but they could have easily been thanks to the steel rods, lights, and extra paraphernalia they were forced to stroll down the runway. As if that was not enough, they had to do so in clogs with heels. I highly doubt someone paid any attention to the clothes when Raquel Zimmermann's life was in danger.

Margiela wants you to start focusing on your shoulders for a change. They are going to be big come next fall.

Is futurism over? Balenciaga went folk and ethnic on us with turquoise stockings, a non-stop series of jodphurs, and jackets which will be flying off the shelves come August. It just so happens that Mr. Ghesquière turned out the most colorful and commercial collection of his career.

Let's have a minute of silence as a tribute to the shoes at Balenciaga. Genious does not begin to describe them.

Galliano came up with the most literal (and glamorous and fur-covered) 40's revival so far this season. Even though his Dior bags were nothing out of the ordinary, the hats were insane.

Now why would Yohji Yamamoto channel Louis Vuitton?

Why would Rei Kawakubo reference Disneyland? In pastel colors? For fall? Please avoid minnie mouse ears, bunny ears, frizzy hair, and gloves applied to your dress.

A lot of people from the fashionspot scream and whine that being commercial is bad. I mean, when a top designer does something worthy of being at the sales dump t H&M, that is bad. But to me, it's REAL art when one can create that is "NOW", relevant in the future AND commercial.

I'd never design a single piece that'd only look good on the runway and in a freakshow.

Those shoes are the most creative thing I have seen in a long time! Kudos to the designer.
