Tonight the Belgian designer restored my faith.
What was the message behind Chiuri's fall collection?
Ethereal creatures with starry tears traversed the gardens in which a wishing tree grew and mysteries bloom.
Last night Sarah Burton tapped a vein of absolute magic. The collection was a simulacra of the wild and coastal landscapes of Great Britain's Shetland Islands.
No we weren't in the brace of the gilded grandeur of Carreau du Temple. Saint Laurent staged its show in a derelict industrial military office with rusting girders.
A rather obscure mash-up.
The whole sequined saga was a little bit LA meets Renaissance Venice, infused with 70s and 80s accents.
This was surely the thinking from Saint Laurent frontman Hedi Slimane this season.
Even though the British weather is more fickle than the economy, inside the Burberry show there was no need of an umbrella.
The controversial designer manipulated every minuscule detail to perfection.
While fashion's lemmings are still trawling through the annals of 70s Almost Famous, Hedi Slimane is once again in a league of his own.
The vision of Hendrix thrashing at his guitar was the image of my adolescence and with this season's Saint Laurent menswear collection, Hedi Slimane delivered in a seductive homage to the late legend.
