The fur piece is not lovely--not because it is only fur, but also because the silhouette and design is just ridiculous imho. I do agree that the shoes could be fabulous, but a detail shot is needed to determine so.

Most of it says "granny goes to brunch." What kind of fit, fashionable, stylish young woman would wear such unflattering clothing? LOL!

i agree completely. those first four or maybe five seasons were stunning. i miss that approach. it's kind of what she built her label on....it's how she sort of honed her craft working with her father's suits and such. i wish she would return to that. also in addition to the fore-mentioned elements,she her sense of volume was superb.

There are cute pieces but it's a very boring collection in general.

I absolutely hate the fur piece and that gray jumpsuit! Eww!
All in all, some of it is good, some of it not so.

what the hell?! AVH... seriously, what is this?

NOT what I was expecting. These muted colors with 80's-ness... no thanks.

I'm finding a lot of designers who usually have a reliable and lovely niche seem to be taking a turn for the worst this season by trying too hard to do something different.

She seems to have lost her edge and vision for quite a few seasons now...This is no exception

This doesn't speak to me. It's dowdy. But I love the shoes.

The ugliest AVH collection Ive ever seen...
The shapes, the colors... it all looks like ice-skater uniforms...
It's so annoyingly frilly and twee too...
Idk what has happened to AVH... she's too good for this.
