Obvious 40's silhouettes blended together with metallic and lustrous material, combined with the runway's icy celestial ambiance gives the collection an almost other-worldly vibe. I really adored the shine and reflection giving off of the material, driving the theme home.

Wanna know what I didn't like? Come find out after the smoke break.

Now for the negatives. Im not really a fan of polkadots and when they are used in abundance, I cringe. Hard.

Now I enjoyed the designs but I can't get past my pre-determined hatred of dots. Another downer is that as well put together and creative this line was, I could help but hear "LV...Louis...Vuitton..." as I watched. I don't know why, but i'm guessing it has something to do with anything dealing in fur and/or french-esque.

All in all I absolutely enjoyed the line and It was only of the strongest at Fashion Week.

I'll be posting up photos from his spring collection, and will be doing a review of that too!
