The Leftovers: Paris Fashion Week SS10

We've come to the end.

Unlike Milan, where the trends already seen in New York and London felt stale and worn, many of the collections shown in Paris found new ways to interpret those ideas for next Spring and Summer.

But even in These Times™, there were some who still took the time to innovate. It's an element that has been noticeably lacking this season. Some did offer looks that were slightly more commercial than those they've sent down the runway in the past. But for the most part, they strove to provide a solution to the industry's never ending search for something new.

The Innovators

At Viktor & Rolf:

Alexander McQueen, however, truly took this task to heart. Like Burberry, he streamed his show live on the internet. I sat and watched, not knowing exactly what I was seeing at first. Confused by these creatures that would have fit in either under the sea or in outer space.

On closer inspection, I knew exactly what this was.
