TBH this flower background hurts my eyes and I can`t see the clothes - only flowers. LOL)))
The collection isnt that bad, imho...but most of the clothes look like they were taken from different collections...silk, lace, prints...too much.

Definitely better than Lohan+Archs combo(well not very hard to do better than that sh!t)
It's very young and youthful,I'm really liking the embellished gowns...it surely does not reach the perfection of Dundas collections but it's rather acceptable

This is the worst thing I've seen in.. god knows how long. At least Lindsay's collection didn't have this.. tackiness in it.
Jesus Christ. I might as well get a knife and kill myself.
This is.. just awful for my taste.
This is when fashion becomes dangerous. It isn't that serious, and I don't see the tackiness many members are seeing. Perhaps we haven't seen a collection from Ungaro in so long that we are forgetting what it used to be all about. I see remnants of past Couture collections which were designed by Ungaro himself. Ultimately, it is a first effort, and I wouldn't discount it fully.

I thought the clothes, ok kinda blah, could find them anywhere around Paris.

The hair and makeup, aged.

The casting, a freakshow and gimmicky, I thought many of the "older" models looked far older than in real life with that hair, dark eyes and crimson lips.

headpieces from Giles, some pieces from Valentino, some from Marchesa, Sonia Rykiel a bit and we got this.
Also the background.
This means bankrupt

The pieces themselves might not be that bad, but the whole presentation, styling, and actually the casting is drenched in tack. I just don't know what happened to Giles. His own line collections for the first few years were great, and then he started to bring in things he thought were humorous, and they're just not.

Was the styling Katie Grand? It smells like her.

I'm sure the pieces will look nice worn on the red carpet, and in editorials, when they actually have room to breathe for themselves, and aren't being suffocated by awful tights, marabou head pieces and neon floral arrangements.

It is indeed a lovely collection, whether or not it has the typical Ungaro flare is questionable though. However, to say Lindseys collection is better than this is a travesty.

The clothes were the only non-tacky thing in this, TBH. Not the best, but not bad either. Just in the middle.

I'm getting strange Dior vibes what with the backdrop and the suits.

Wow, everyone is really overreacting. This is actually one of the better collections from Paris this season. At least its not all-white...
