It always looks messy. I get that his thing is louche and sexy, but this seems super forced and not well executed. As in, flat out messy garments, if you can even call them that. At least it looks as though it is designed for the Summer. You know you wont be sweating, more than likely you will be making men sweat. Which I guess is a good thing, maybe?

it is very messy and poorly done, i was expecting a lot more. I liked the last looks though, except for the last dress...

Black & white is really everywhere this season. It is surely going to be one of the top trends of S/S 2013.
I usually like his collections but I really was expecting more, so I'm kind of disappointed. This one looks so weak. Some pieces look cheap (these black tops at the beginning were the worst imo) and tacky (the sequin dress on Kinga ew). The last pieces were more interesting though.

Bleh. He's so terrible. So one note - and it's not even a note anybody really needs to be listening to. He's all smoke and mirrors. It seems like he thinks the more straps and seams and ties he adds to a short little dress the "cooler" it will be. I can't picture a single one of these pieces looking good off these annoying IT models, too. And even they don't look good in them!

It's just so cheesy to me - to have all these big flashy models like Anja and Karlie and Arizona walk his show. It's so student and it just goes to show that he has no real point of view of his own to prove.

Ok fashion is subjective, and we're each entitled to our opinion, but, personally I would wish to paint a very different picture.

I am choosy with which fashion critics and editors I truly give plaudits to. Not influenced by that whole 'position status' 'in va industry' thing, But I think most of us would respect the views of those on the ANDAM panel.

Honors From a French Jury

By JESSICA MICHAULT


The fashion designer Anthony Vaccarello.

Anthony Vaccarello has a new accolade to add to his list of accomplishments. The 31-year-old Belgian designer has been named this year’s winner of the ANDAM Fashion Award, the French equivalent of the Council of Fashion Designers of America prize. He follows in the footsteps of past winners who include Giles Deacon, Gareth Pugh, Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren of Viktor & Rolf, and Martin Margiela.

Chosen by a jury of fashion heavyweights like Pierre Bergé, Delphine Arnault, Nadja Swarovski and Emmanuelle Alt, Mr. Vaccarello will use his 200,000 euro prize money (about $288,000) to finance his next Paris runway show in October as well as open up a design studio in Paris.

Mr. Vaccarello said that although he was happy and honored to have been recognized by the ANDAM jury for his work, he did not plan to let the award affect how he would go about --------building his company. “I am going to do what I always did, and that is to grow the brand slowly and steadily,” he said when reached by phone on Thursday

--------------------------------------
Me -

One of the interesting things about this was the past winners were by and large from the avant garde. Anthony is not. More in the spirit of Versace perhaps.

But this collection did get edgier. It's still a horny teenage boys wetdream on the sex part of the equation - and christ the person that said the models didn't look good - were you looking at the same show I was!?! - But on the edge side, the influence of Emmanuelle Alt is clear to see. Seems to me Anthony is the new Christophe? Relative to seasons past, the new spirit is palpably, obviously, toward Decarnin's Balmain.

My post will be getting overlong so I will post a review of looks seperately.
But I just wanted to make a start on redressing the balance of appreciation.

I apologise that I struggle with posting videos but here is a link. I really do think that 9 times out of 10 one will best appreciate a show in movement. Compared with the stills.

I liked his last season's collection and it's definitely not nearly as good this time around. Most of the looks seem sloppy and messy. The construction seems lacking.
