    technically masterful, aesthetically interesting, and absolutely uninspiring. All the puffers remind me of Issey Miyake (and chains of Gaultier).

    hmmm, why do you think it's uninspiring, Faust?

    I think it's a gorgeously theatrical presentation...music (Madame Butterfly), make-up, everything! The combination of the puffas with so much black threatens to be crushing, but the touches of gold add so much richness. (Black and golf has been a fave pairing of mine lately, so perhaps i'm a bit biased.) I particularly like the draped pieces.

    Interesting progression of darkness over at CDG...Tao did a dark collection for f/w 08, Rei for s/s 09, and now Junya for f/w 09...

    It's uninspiring, because it's been so beaten to death by Junya, that I am simply bored.

    LOL. I suppose also the fact that he is working with the same fabric pretty much, just changing the looks. Of course it could be viewed as a good thing, but maybe the all black also adds to the monotony.
