The Garden with The Silence of the Lambs touch.
This is great. This man was born to do couture, I just wish he could do something better for rtw because since he started with this genious couture colections I havent seen a good rtw one.

Nobody should teach anybody anything. They are both two very different designers with two very different visions.

lol sorry but i don't think haute couture equals ridiculous overdoing of frills, ruffles, random volumes all over the place, so many prints to make one's eyes hurt etc.

i see how raf's collection can be underwhelming but this is just horrible.

I hope Raf learns from him what NOT to do (in this case, for example). This whole pret-a-porter discussion is so pointless... I won't say more because I don't want my comment to be deleted and really, whatever.

Terrible collection. He did it much better last season.

Oh! yes, you're right. This is not the moment nor the place to talk about that

At least I wasn't who began with all this spam.

Some of the ruffles look exactly like bed skirts. I was looking forward to this but it's a bit of a misstep. If only he'd toned it down a little.

Ditto. I really like this... Can't wait to see it in HQ. I love the frills, colors, prints... and it doesn't feel overdone, in my opinion.

You said all I wanted to say, I love the Silence of the Lambs touch.
We have been missing this slightly strange side of Giambattista for quite a while, the side that fellow Italian Francesco Scognamiglio shares but has continued. These enormous ruffled pieces are a lot like Scognamiglio's work, though I always drew comparisons between the two.
I really want to see this in motion.

I wish more people could be like you. I really like Giambattista and his designs but for this, I would need to see HQs and in motion.

I should have looked at this first lol. Having seen the latest from Dior these ruffles are too much yuck for me, can't stand it. The prints are gorgeous tho.
