Setting the tone of the show was a lone accordion player, who provided a structured and eccentric soundtrack for the androgynous models as they walked down the runway appearing completely devoid of emotion.
The highly architectural collection referenced Antoni Gaudi, a Spanish Catalan Architect of the late 1800’s, who was famous for his unique style and highly individualistic designs – much like Yeohlee herself.
The array of textural materials included felted woolens, membrane-like cotton, featherweight silk organdy woven with undulating velvet stripes and metallic taffetas embroidered with a granular rice pattern. The color palette was subtle, based mostly on black, white and various shades of grey.
A standout piece was the very first look of the evening, a striking stretch felted wool coat in grey that was ovoid in shape with a crisp, structured collar that folded around the model’s shoulders and neck in a futuristic manner and could be adjusted into a hood at the wearers discretion.
Although it is unclear if this is a completely wearable collection for most in their current day to day lives, Yeohlee’s impressive designs are definitely the wave of the future and all in all, quite an amazing work of art to see.

Everyone looked great, especially the designers. My idol Chloe Sevigny was there. Christina Milian and Carmen Electra showed up wearing nearly identical outfits (from the collection). Yikes! Already I don’t want that shirt because obviously everyone and their brother is going to have it.
I still don’t have a formal opinion of the clothes. I’ll have to look at them more, in the flesh, when they arrive at H&M on November 9th.
As far as the clothes, this is my favorite look from the collection. I really, really like the skirt:
…and here are some others:
I’m sure most of you have heard about Viktor & Rolf‘s Fall collaboration with H&M but what you don’t know is that tomorrow at their exclusive launch in Bel-Air, models will walk through a 4-tier, 12 foot tall, actual wedding cake! Attendees will be seated around the runway on white cast-iron tables and the show will be preceded by a traditional wedding cake-cutting ceremony.
Rumor has it that the lovely wedding gown shown above, is constructed out of silk and tulle and will retail for $378.00
How fun! I love Viktor and Rolf and it is my prediction that this is going to be the best Designer/H&M collection to date but only time can tell. We shall see on November 9th when Viktor and Rolf for H&M arrives one-time only at 250 H&M stores worldwide.
I have been waiting for this for months! I can’t wait to go to my local H&M and watch all the eBayers try to hoard all the wedding dresses!
See you at the altar, bitches!
How cute is this invite starring one of my most favorite femmes, Irina Lazareanu?
Just go to the site [www.chanel.com] to view Chanel’s entire delicious S/S 07 collection online. Yum, yum, yum! I really want that suit she’s wearing.
As far as the collection goes, it’s incredible. It’s bold, chic and monochromatic. I am so tired of pastels in the S/S palette so things like their white blazers paired with black sequined hotpants are just what the doctor ordered! Lots of gold and silver mixing and matching with the accessories. I just love it.
Here is my absolute favorite look from the collection:
That oversized logo necklace is outta control!
