The biggest problem with this collection is obviously the 80's veneer. Strip away the earrings, the hairstyle, the awful, awful shoes, and re-imagine the entire collection in solid greys, navys and blacks and you are actually left with some interesting clothes. I do however, hate the skirts and dresses with the curved hem cutting from waist to knee.

For example, though, these looks in particular are very strong as a garment alone:


What I mean to say is, is that there are actually quite a few pieces in this collection that are interesting and very well designed, but the whole collection and all the styling essentially proposes all these clothes as a costume. While no huge fan of the 80's myself, I did find the presentation and soundtrack extremely charming and tolerable as an interpretation of that decade. However, the leopards, the lames, the booties and thrift store heels and jewelry all cheapen a collection that would have looked 10 times better had the obvious styling been eliminated.

He just went too literal on the inspiration basically, he should have had this for his F/W 2009 collection instead and have that collection in F/W 2012. Jennifer Connelly would not approve...

too futuristic for my liking, I love the last 2 looks though.
