these clothes are soo tacky, but in a good way (if that makes any sense). it's not too gimmicky, it's not contrived, the collection as a whole is solid.

I don't like the make up though and the girls were sucking in their cheeks. normally it's only Mrs. Poly but everyone was guilty here.

Totally tasteless, unreconstructed 80's bitchwear. Utterly vulgar.

I always feel like anyone could wear her clothes and generally just look nice in them. This collection is probably one of the best examples of this.
I dont agree that much.... i think people get that feeling of blank collection because Frida only chooses couple key colors for a collection and works with them... like SS08 wiv black-white-yellow-pink.... or this season is only white-black-golden.... which is imo opinion very smart....
just like Versace used to focus on prints... stunning prints but horrible construction of clothes that nobody could wear (ss04 collection almost ruined Versace)... then Versace went monochromatic wiv flawless constructions wiv ss06 & fw06 and saved itself...
I think Frida has very strong spirit and every season is very themed and thats why her clothes sell so much...

btw, I already see the Zara and H&M store-windows full of Golden-white-black graphic dresses and leather jackets in 1 years xD (just like we saw these bright orange, green, red, blue jackets in every store cuz of Frida's SS11 collection)

Anyone else getting a really subtle egyptian vibe?

hehe, yeah.. i could see it... especially the golden color gives it that egyptian feeling... i think one could find some look-alikes with Roberto Cavalli's eqyptian FW07 collection...

and I'm actually glad to see couple more optical pounds on Natasha... xD she's way too skinny....

I think the problem with this collection is that the color palette is so limited. As a label, you want the customer to buy only Gucci, spend ALL their money in your store. I don't think women want to spend over $30,000 on a wardrobe that is just black, white, & gold. She should've added one or two more colors, IMO. It's also too similar to the resort collection, there is just more gold.

Is it just me or this collection is very reminiscent of Balenciaga FW08?
From jackets and pants to raccoon-eyed make-up. Kind of a turn off.

lol.. did you forget about Chanel? its the parisian BEST seller just because everything is black&white for instance Chanel SS07 everything black-white or golden... According to U.S. Vogue, the best collection of that entire season.... totally same thing

I think you mean FW07 with etno and multicultural references... not FW08 Spanish-inspired one...
