i dunno gergin,it's easy peasy enough to be comfortable and yet retains a sense of quirkiness. and the print work is lovely. it actually kind of reminds of medieval undergarments. but very much in that vein of complex geometries and carolin lerch's pelican avenue label.
Can you elaborate why you don't like it? Your post is a bit...vague
I'm not fond of this either, which is surprising because I usually like every collection Scott posts. The way the garments are dyed reminds me too much of the cheap stuff you can find in those wannabe-ethnic/esoteric stores. If it wasn't for that everything would probably look much less frumpy and it would be a nice basic collection. The way it's styled here makes the proportions look a bit unflattering (especially the maxi dress over the turtleneck look) but I think that could be fixed if styled differently.
Well to justify my emoticon. I'm not looking at it from a styling perspective, lets start with those print pieces because to me they look like a failed attempt at a Christopher Kane knock-off and then going to the garments themselves there just doesn't seem to be any originality and it's really nothing new to the industry. Some of the shapes are just SO unflattering I don't even think the model is very happy to wear these clothes at all.
What was the inspiration for this collection Scott?
i can't really agree on the kane comparisons strictly because let's not forget ann demeulemeester has been doing those ombre/degrade affects herself for a while now. and christiane gruber as well has been doing this kind of print-work for while.....since she launched the label in 2005.
the collection is entitle "running" which i presume is a kind of nod to athletics...specifically,perhaps,the ancient greek games. there does seem a sort of grecian affect here in some of the dresses and then you have the leggings and tunics that look rather medieval.
