There is no abstract art. You must always start with something. Afterward you can remove all traces of reality. — Pablo Picasso

Tiberius Show "Structure" @ MQ Vienna Fashion Week 2014
Hi, the above quote is used on the flyer announcing the latest collection "Structure" of Vienna's award-winning fashion label Tiberius. On the other side you see four, handsome, (almost) naked men lying at the feet of an elegantly dressed woman.
If you thought that this was the theme of the current collection presented at the Vienna Fashion Week 14, you were wrong :P (hey hey, never believe an ad, reality is always different.) Tiberius new collection was neither overly abstract nor overly provocative, instead it was yet another step of the label's transition towards a solid, formal, leather-pimped, elegant, business-fitted, ready-to-wear collection.
What the collection lacked of provocation was however found in the short intro video prior the show, citing some biblical quotes from Genesis. In my opinion, fashion is the anti-thesis to creationism, since in fashion there is constant change, restructuring, and evolution. Not coincidentally, the last shows of Tiberius were called "Conquest" and "Evolution" by the way ;)

How do you like Tiberius' new structure compared to last year's conquest collection? What is your favorite dress of the new collection? What is your stand on the "religious" video intro?
