It's pretty bad, which does not surprise me. Everything Gucci Group lays its hands on turns to you know what....

Sugo is right, BV has been trying to get out of their "classic" mode, rather that's what their corporate bosses have been pushing them to do. Needless to say it's not working, and it never will. BV should do what they do best, status woven leather pieces. They should just advertise more (well, they have been under the Gucci umbrella). They are kind of lost, I guess - they wanted to be Hermes, but never got there. Now they want to be Balenciaga - they won't get there either, unless they get some real talent.

Faust, I really agree. I remember being really excited by their plans (to go the Hermes route) which were mentioned in a W article some time ago; this is completely not the direction they wanted....
