it's definitely a lot better than S/S. though i dont feel the love for the stiff pieces on the first page. those jackets and dresses look wrong to me. but the softer pieces with the sculpted hips at the beginning are definitely "Yes".

the black dresses at the beginning are ok.....but they're nothing that special. they look like old archive designs from cristobal but ****ed up with ugly seaming, shorter hemlines and a slit up the side to make it "sexy". especially the black & white one...that definitely looks straight from the archives and "modernized"

everything else is hideous, it goes on a snowball effect of ugly. more and more ugliness piled on until a crescendo of those fabergé egg printed LOOSE FITTING LATEX dresses.

Looks like he tweeked the "greatest hits" a bit and offered this. I like the different interpretation...and it will be another commercial hit IMHO.

There's something intriguing about the patent leather dresses, and I like the 3 black dresses - it's a nice modern take on a classic. The overall look seems almost dated to me, especially with the shoes ( from what I see so far ) but I do like the twisted fabric tops.

I agree, Ale. I feel like I'm looking at something completely different with all the raving commentary. this is quite irrelevant to me.
The prints remind me of what Peter Pilotto's been doing for quite a while, the blurry landscapes in particular.. and it's annoying to see round shoulders making an appearance as well and helping Nicholas to look innovative when both Alber and Matthew Ames did them last winter. well.. whatever. I suppose I mainly check this to see what will become my big nightmare in editorials.. I'm just glad it's something that hopefully can be flipped over and it's humble enough to be paired up with other garments.. (though I still spot a good number of "it" and "uniform" candidates ).

I think that the round shoulders are from his collection FW03? and the prints remind me the scubadiving collection (the prints and the collar).
