go and see the balenciaga exhibition at the V & A  – the wonderful lines, the creativity and cut of the clothes are just inspirational.  once you are at the V & A, take a look at the architecture and furniture floor, its so beautiful and overlooked.  you can see where a lot of designers have taken their inspiration from, including comme des garçons.  if you happen to be going to New York you have to visit the exhibition there at the Metropolitan museum – you can see the similarities – art of the in between.
