i kind of agree....looking at everything in the HQ shots,i'm not as taken by it as i was at first. i mean it looks great at face value but on closer inspection doesn't appear that remarkably well-done,imo. i've seen better collage approaches in this vein(like chalayan...like kokosalaki)which were subtle-y done but as you looked close were magnificently intricate. i wish i saw a bit more craft and technique in this besides some bland laser cutting and billowy silhouettes.

User tomorrowparty of the Livejournal community "Fashin" pointed out the odd similarities between this collection and Tufi Duek SS 2011 São Paulo...

I agree with Scott, upon closer inspection, the clothes look super cheap, like they were made with scotch tape or something, and now after viewing Tufi Duek's collection , AW ripped off a lot of it. I take my opinion back, I knew it was too good to be true

Oh come on, Tufi Duek wasn't an original either. Michael Kors used a similar technique a year before, and it all traces back to the Mod era anyway. Seriously the authority with which people declare something a knockoff amazes me at times.

I am a bit more surprised about that head strap and the shoes. Separately I won't think anything of it but it together? umm.

^ And if copycats are so easily detected, why is Duek not being accused of copying the same detail/construction from Kors who did it a year prior?

i think you can say this collection looks alot of things but cheap???

I mean if we're talking about what looks like a knock off I'm surprised no one has said the boots look like the boots Kanye West did but done the right way.

Because at least 90% of the members hadn't heard who Duek was before this (including me). Alexander Wang, on the other hand, is one of the NY shows that attract the most attention, so it's understandable that he gets criticized more heavily than an unknown Brazilian designer. Plus, those sweatshop accusations aren't helping his popularity around here either.
