While I appreciate the last 5 floral looks and find the veiled hats to be quite romantic most of the collection just isn't my taste. The hula hoop bag is a complete joke - right along with those distracting necklaces and bracelets. I appreciate the environmentally friendly message but feel that it could've been better conveyed through a less clinical venue (I find that the solar panel inspiration works surprisingly well on Ava Smith's strapless dress, though.)

I love this collection, very youthful and edgy. Some pieces look promising to me while some are pretty boring.

I will admit that the flower dresses at the end are so pretty it hurts BUT... the majority of the clothes here are just downright boring and ugly. How does he create a fabulous collection over at Fendi and then dare to send this down the runway? Chanel just aint what it used to be.

The accessories, however, are to die for. Those block clutches are just about the best thing I've seen all season.

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 love it

Your last sentence could describe Chanel for the past 5 years or more probably imo.

His best so far ever since 2010? but not his strongest ever since! What I love about this is how this entire collection stands on its own. Unlike that last collection where they all look utterly the same. I love how the essence of tweed was retained but it was taken into a new level. I love the lightness this collection gives off, and the youngness and vibrance it has. The last floral dresses were amazing!! The rest was beautiful! and the hats!!

HATE the cropped jackets and puffy sleeves, the baggy dresses, the huge collars...almost nothing is flattering.

It's a bit messy and most of the clothes are really unflattering. Some cute dresses though but overall quite messy.
