Why does economical recession translate into 80s inspired collections? It's like they all gathered around the table and decided that they were going for the 80s next season.
definitely Warhol inspired and 80s pop culture and the power lady ofcourse and 80s prom dresses barf!

hmm, I liked the pink and some dresses, like the dark blue number on Olga or the one on Kasia. Not so much a fan of those photoprints.
Where has the sex gone? It's not at Cavalli anymore, Dolce & Gabbana have banned it...I miss it.
Who's bringing sexy back?

I really don't think that most of this was very 80's at all. If anything, it had a strong Schiaparelli late 30s/early 40s vibe to it.

I actually liked the collection at the start, it was kooky, it was graphic, the Marilyn prints were cute (though kind of lazy. I love the idea of a Marilyn Monroe print, but they should've done something with it instead of just smacking a blown up portrait of her in the center of a piece of fabric.)

As it wore on though, between the repetition of the music and the repetition of the looks it really started to grate on my nerves. Why, WHY do they insist on showing so many similar looks every season? It drowns out any of the interesting pieces that might be in the collection.
