YES TO IT ALL!!!!

Making a stand against the fast pace of fashion inspired the quirky & surreal collection at Dutch design duo Viktor & Rolf's autumn/winter 2008-9 show. Their 80's Regean-esque "Just say NO!" theme translated into a beautiful trench coat boasting a collar that morphed into the word 'No' as the look & feel of the catwalk.

The theme continued throughout the show with the words 'No', 'Wow' and 'Dream on' emblazoned across the models faces, as buckles on belts teamed with skinny fit trousers in red wine shades, & enveloping shoulders of party frocks dusted with staples as embellishment.

MAJOR SHOES from the VIKTOR & ROLF A/W 2008-9 Collection



Jackets came seemingly created from two different wardrobes – furry sleeves completed a double-breasted number while padded and puffer sleeves made for a striking contrast on a neat jacket and skirt ensemble.

While some pieces were undoubtedly more wearable than others, it's unlikely we'll be saying "No" to the cool party dresses ,sassy sheer shirts & KILLER Shoes!



VIKTOR & ROLF are one of my fav designers and it still amazes me what they produce season after season... I'm a shoe FANATIC and these small wonders truly have a place in my heart - Bravo!!

These adorable bracelet & clutch are a serious MUST for A/W!

While not everyone was a fan of this collection I LOVED it - Fashion is moving faster these days and it seems impossible to stay with the times ... all in all they had a message and they translated it into a strong collection ....

I love it all, especially the no coat. When you are walking down the street and a dude tries to holla I will just point to my coat.

I don't know about walking in the street with all that going on- imagine being in a crowded train with thick-four letter words across your chest. What is the biggest size?

Now my eyes really won't take seeing this down the street-imagine the clubs.
