There's so much fug in this collection, I cant even...The hula-hoop bag and the lego clutch however are produced by a pure stroke of immaculate genius. Accessories of the season. Kudos!

Is it just me or does everything just look BIG? It looked like the models were drowning in the clothes.

It just feels so refreshing which I think is something the house sorely needed. I hated last season and I didn't much care for the season before so this looks a lot better to me. The white pieces with floral embroidery are my favorite, as are the little dresses. I do agree with some others who say it's a bit long and needs more coherence (something a lot of designers this season haven't been following) but I still really like it

I feel like, somewhere, Yves Saint Laurent is having a chuckle at seeing Karl losing it the same way he did.

I don't care for the clothes, the flower part is sort of decent if we ignore it's barely a part as they're 3-4 looks in a collection of over 50. The shoes are pretty unfortunate.. Céline's slippers received so much criticism this week (and rightly so) but fast forward 10 years from now and they'll still look weird, the platforms shown here on the other hand were quirky in 1996, then everyone's fashion mistake, and history will repeat itself. The collection in general's packed with gimmicks and too many pieces that will not survive time no matter how Chanel it all is.

I loved this season's collection, but mostly because I was like "eh" to a few of the recent season's collections.

I felt a bit overwhelmed by all the different looks, and there are a few that are butt-ugly, but overall I love it!

The mini-hula-hoop bag is so cute!

First time ever I dont know whether I like or dislike this collection. This is going to take some time to digest.

PS that oversize bag is bonkers.

This bag is truly an artform. This is how this collection is gonna be remembered. And it has single handendly given me hope about Karl, which i had seemed to lose prior to this.

^IMO it'll be remembered as just one of senile Karl's ridiculous prop/accessories.

I think the size is primarily what makes it ridiculous. Make it smaller and it will be remembered in history for being stylish and somewhat practical.

People citing his age as the cause for a bad collection sound a little, ugh, ageist...senile? really?
