I really liked the black pieces with the gathering, at the top of page 2 (dramatic and modern) and those little black tabs (buckles?) at shoulders, waists, necks, etc. Good collection overall. Something different - no dogs or flowers! The bows and ruffles didn't really work that well for me though.

the beginning with the ruffles is awful. reminds me too much of Balenciaga's Resort and previous Prada collection. not everyone can do ruffles well.

towards the middle, some of the dresses with the metal detail on the shoulder look intriguing. but the shoes won't be anywhere near as big a success as the ones from S/S 12.

I prefer it when he does minimalism and not the crazy prints like we saw in the Pre-Fall and Resort collections.

And yes, a few of the ruffled dresses are very Lanvin-ish.

Oh ricardo, I'm swooning this was so powerful and just gorgeous. I loved the opening ruffled looks, the rounded jackets over the slim pants with layered skirts, and the dresses with the shoulder tabs. And then to top it all off, the pieces with the trains and the white floor length gown. Wish there had been more of those as those last couple looks with the weird collars weren't my favorite, but this is still one of the best collections of the season for me. Graphic and slightly minimal without being overly "edgy" like so many other designers have been this season.

Lanvin haven't copyrighted the ruffle. But seeing as Balenciaga did them too, I suppose they'll be in for spring..

Otherwise, this collection is making me die. I think I have spied the best skirt in the whole world in this collection.
Tisci is on an actual roll, his latest collections have been so incredibly strong; I am in love with them.

I really hate this I don't see a single thing I like here. It's unflattering and so boring, I could barely bring myself to click through the full slideshow on nowfashion. Major disappointment, in my opinion.

Clothes = Perfect.
Accessories = Perfect.
Tisci = Perfect.
THE MOUSTACHE = PERFECT.

This is all so good !! I was hoping for something clean and precise after he's been doing "interesting" garments lately. GOOD JOB TISCI !!!

It always baffles me when people bring Gucci into the equation into the work of Alber, Ricardo and Nicolas.

Anyway, this collection seals him as a important voice in this industry! Not a single person on Twitter not swooning over this collection!

One of the best collection of Paris. Clean, feminine, modern...everything I love. It's true some pieces remind us of Lanvin, but whatever. The whole collection is so desirable, the shoes are amazing and necklaces too.

Bravo Riccardo !

Pretty lackluster. I like the tailoring, some of the satin tunic-dresses and the overall minimal and clean feeling, but it doesn't excite. The ruffles and some of the shapes are really flattering.
