Viktor + Rolf’s F/W 2010 show was extremely unique and charismatic, surely a sigh of relief in the wake of Alexander Mcqueen’s untimely death.
While the wearbility quotient was low, that’s something most have come to expect of the artistry which makes Viktor + Rolf stand out.
The show featured the designers center stage, dressing and redressing model Kristen McMenamy as other models were undressed or dressed mid-trek.
I have not read about the inspiration behind this year’s theme, but it appears to be an allegory of several subjects including the designers’ preference for personal tailoring and handcrafting.
The theme also straddled ideas of extreme garment versatility: every outfit shown one way and then an entirely different way; and excessive collection: a very clever parody of those women who just have to have and wear it all, even if they look a bit strange and weighed-down in the end.
The show was a creative success and proof that outside of the elite, top-tier of fashion designers and their very corporate, often buyer-friendly labels are artists who dare to defy the usual conventions.

These shots from Giorgio Armani’s Fall 2010 campaign are quite smoldering. People just aren’t glamorous like this anymore.

I thought that was Gisele on the Balenciaga runway. Too bad she looks like a Nurse from the Minority Report movie. Awesome film. Watch it if you haven’t seen it. Tom Cruise at his best in a mediocre performance that worked a little bit.
Auf Wiedersehen Frau Klum. :*(
((runs back in hysterically crying and shouting)) THIS IS THE RUNWAY WHERE YOU BELONG! WHO WANTS TO BE ON A PROJECT RUNWAY!? AINT THAT THE HOOD?? ((more hysterical crying))
Louis Vuitton runway Fountain Finale. Classical. Lovely.
Wow. I actually thoroughly enjoyed Rick Owens this season! Which is a bit ironic since it seems the shows I really didn’t like this year featured elements that Rick has been doing for centuries.
Glad to see Rick clocked in for work this season! It’s truly been a sad BUST for fashion this time around.
