I don't think the idea for this kind of design is to offer a particularly impactful runway, just as much as the beauty of Jil Sander's collection might be even more easy to appreciate once you get to see the clothes in person and put them on... Personally, I am fine to just see something that has believable, lasting appeal, good cut and fabrication all the way through. She knows just how much injection of quirky detailing is necessary for her audience and she keeps it at a tempered minimum to keep things younger and fresher than Hermès but out of the headache-y conceptual territory of other designers.

And, while I was very much open to embrace Veronique Branquinho's collection after a solid outing last season (I do think both cater to the same kind of customer, alongside Jil Sander and Margiela), I found this latest Phoebe Philo outing to be much more believable and uncontrived.

that's a good one. I also get a very strong Hermes by MM feel from this. The double cashmeres, grey tones and voluminous cuts...

This collection really made me smile! This is the type of collection I've been wanting to see from her.

Now THIS I love. If I'm forced to have to wear winter clothing (and living in Boston, I'm often forced into winterwear) then this is what I want it to be!

I am sensing that Phoebe Philo is feeling the heat from Jil Sander. It's a pretty collection nevertheless.
