I dont like the idea of throwing a ton of flowing fabric for Couture. It's getting corny

That collection was beautiful, really lovely although I don't like those leopard-printed gowns, but that's my personal taste. Really impressive for a first show.

I really like his work and I was very happy and excited when I heard he was going to do couture. But I must say I've mixed feelings about this collection. While some of it is gorgeous (the second coat is just divine), I think it needed to be heavily edited and reduced to 25 looks max. The worst was those leopard pieces which were really ugly and shouldn't have been included.

Have you ever uploaded a collection or a large batch of images? I have and I can see both sides of it because like you, I like seeing full-sized pictures, but I have also posted collections and that can be a very laborious, multi-step process, although there may be short-cuts and tools that I am unfamiliar with. Furthermore most image hosts create thumbnails as part of the uploading process and image shack is the only one that I know that you can go in and manually edit the code to create a full-size image, with others you have to either upload an image at a time or grab the code for a full-sized picture an image at a time but not as a batch, again there may be techniques that I don't know about. The point I am getting at is not so much that people should be satisfied with thumbnail images, although it is not an either-or thing because it is good to see the details in an HQ image, rather if this is something that people want to see more of, then those of us who do should to start pitching in to make it happen.

I liked most of the pieces until I got the the leopard and that threw me off the rest. I agree that this should have been edited, some looks were just so repetitive, but I really enjoyed his more semiformal cocktail type dresses. I think he excelled there the best.

can we just rename this 'Valentino' and be deliriously happy with it? and can whatever those 2 purse designers have in store?

i see how people see Chanel in it, but imo this seems a lot warmer, more inviting than Chanel, which has been rather cold recently...

Wow, this is such a stunning collection! I'm especially in love with the flowy, red cape and dress. The designs look amazing.

Amen. Why didn't he take the job??
I also think the proportions at Valli are much more refined than whatever Lagerfeld is attempting to do at the moment.

Its a great start! I love it! Yes it is a bit Valentino and a bit of Lacroix which I'm sure many people miss.

it's refreshing seeing animal print in HC. seems like design houses shy away from it.
