Some of the jackets are really nice, but it's otherwise nothing too special in my eyes. The extremely boring cast doesn't help...

I think it's the headbands and hairstyles that are reminding me of Prada FW 05, but not a whole lot else.

The images in post #24 look very Prada with the coloring and that style of the black one. It reminds me of the fall 08 shows.

I love it! It's minimal but with references, which makes it interesting.

I don't really like the cast. I mean, I can see where they are going with casting 'up and coming' girls, but once a model gains some sort of longevity/success, they seem to be ditched by CK, with the exception of a few... maybe they are just trying to keep the emphasis on the clothing rather than the models.

of course, because when NY designers aren't ripping off Balenciaga, they are ripping off Prada

Except I'm pointing out the lack of presence this new crop of models brings to the collection; hence lack of impact. And as I said, maybe that's what he wanted. But in my opinion, I think the casting was disappointing.

I thought the casting was really dull. They all kinda look the same.

Agreed, but then again, it might have been a decision made to compliment the minimalist aesthetic of his collections.
