I just watch and spectate and I can quite say it’s starting to embrace the mass culture of grunge, fur, and a little goth perhaps? The parts that get to me (most likely because they involve long coats):   The parts I don’t quite get: See the full collection here and tell me what you really think? Are they actually good and I’m the one with bad taste, or do they…
