It just seems unclear which level of "conceptual" he's aiming for. Some designers' lines have a clear line between their highly conceptual pieces and their more rack-ready or carpet-ready pieces. This is just a big mixup. #3= appears totally red-carpet wearable. #7- only if you're Daphne Guiness. #9- only in avante guarde theater productions.

ETA: necklace-kerchief is awesome and the matching bracelets in #5 would be SO much fun to wear.
