I used to like Olivier's work, it was simple but intricate and very original.
From the last season to this one I think it's very loud and dated

I think he still hasn't mastered the technique of modernizing the 80's fashion, with taste and not to literal. He puts it all out there.

This was so dated, tacky, and outright ugly.

Dear gracious he made Karlie look like a linebacker! This is not pleasing to my eye. I see he tried to make women look better by reducing the waist but the shoulders. Oh dear.

His first few collections for Balmain were soo good, this is just sooo trashy lol, and toooo mid 80s for its own good. I am all for retro inspirations but the mid late 1980s is an era which should never see the light of day, and this is exactly why.
