Rei Kawakubo never ceases to amaze and bewilder me with her astonishing, head turning garments. Kawakubo's work is more than just clothes, it is art. That's not say that all clothing, designer that is, is not art, but there is a certain essence to everything Rei does that is almost like looking at a sculpture from one of the greats of centuries past. This collection was a perfect example of her expertise at forming the impossible and reworking the beautiful to her own definition. Rei Kawakubo is master at what she does, and I pray that we will have many more collections as marvelous as this one to come.

To even begin to attempt to limit down the Celine Fall 2010 collection to a few pictures of my personal favorites was impossible. this collection was even stronger than the last. Phoebe Philo's use of structure and line is impeccable. "Strong. Powerful. Reduced.", as Philo puts it in her own words. I could not agree more with miss Philo. Sleek funnel necks, long coats, cut v neck dresses, leather shirts and pockets, and flowing blouses, all in a color pallet of black, navy, and white, Phoebe's, sleek modern garments are exactly what the market needs to get women back in the department stores stimulating our economy. Another successful season by the comeback designer. Cannot fathom what possibly could be next. but what ever it may be, we know if it has Phoebe's mark on it, it will be great.
