Viktor & Rolf Fall 2010
Although Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren shows have been thought as spectacles by great showmen, for Fall 2010 they delivered a collection of not just wearable art, but real clothes. This collection had some beautifully tailored jackets and sexy black dresses. At times some of the pieces were extreme and in epic proportions,meant to be worn by those who are not faint at heart.

Givenchy Fall 2010
Riccardo Tisci, was thinking Ski resort for Fall 2010, but it came across more like Martin Margiela, avant-garde minimalism. This collection was kept tight with a black, white and red color palette, and was more about line and structure, compared his previous ready-to-wear collections for this famed Parisian house. Tisci did incorporate lace with sharp tailoring, proving that he can make serious clothes and not just a show.
