I'm not convinced by this collection. A lot of it looks really clumsy and badly put together. A lot of it also left me scratching my head; some of those platform shoes were just awful, especially paired with the super shorter lengths, which were also very strange.
After such a strong Fall Winter collection, this was really disappointing. He really struggles to make an impact with the Spring Summer collections. The last, truly inspiring Spring Summer collection he did was for SS 2010.
Definately not what I expected to see. It might sound funny but there is too much going on for me - peplums, necklines, weird-looking skirts. It does not feel pure and some of the dresses would look so much better on Victoria Beckham's runway...
Immovable structure, unflattering silhouettes and fabric experimentation; this is a typical Francisco Costa collection. He's sort of a fauvist in the fashion world - he's more interested in the technique and the fabric than the actual practical sense of the garment.
I, for one, love what I immediately labelled the 'Mickey Mouse' cups beneath the dresses, and it's really interesting how the seams don't appear to be sewn together.
A closer inspection is required!
But yes, still, he needs to work on making clothes look nice on human beings.
And as previously stated - he's proven he can do it in the resort collections!
I don't totally dislike it, but the it's not that great either.
Some very strange looking silhouettes on display here and hideously ill-fitting around the midriff and bust areas on some dresses.
Also the cups underneath look like 'chicken fillets' on show.....which isn't a great look to be fair.
Hit and miss collection.....but definitely more of a miss.
