    Carnivores is intriguing, but what i await most is “parallax” from Costa.

    i think alexander wang seems to be hinting at the whole shredded/ pulled/ textured/ prints rage going on almost simultaneously everywhere hahaha. soft sculpture for me please!

    Hmm, is it just me, or is the format coming out wierd for all of you?

    P.S.- Rocknrolla sounds hot, I’m thinking something inspired by the movie, so something underground grungy meets sexy.
    Hmm..carnivores, I’m thinking femme fatale.
    Have you noticed how dull some of the collections already sound?
