A very sharp and sensible collection in my opinion. None of the pieces lends itself too easily to overstatement while most still have just the perfect touch of modern sophistication.

Hidden somewhat by its presentation, better editing reveals several more tightly-focused "clusters" of looks that highlight the versatility and adaptability

I agree w/what you said. I liked the sharp tailoring and especially love the length of the trousers. I would wear almost everything here, except those off the shoulder tops and the last two dresses. :?

Astrid, for some reason I see you in that third to last outfit. :?

trean, it seemed a lot more directly commercial... really though it's because the "market" came around to him instead of him catering to the market, I thought. Do you agree? :?

In any case, I'm anxious to see Fèraud.
I <span style='font-size:10'>ed</span> his first collection there last season.

Xopher,Yes I certainly agree!His previous collection was less 'wearable' for mainstream buyers.It's a bit compareable with some of Bikkembergs work for women.


And Astrid I also see you wearing that outfit 8)

I like #'s 1,3,4,5 & 6

but the rest is :x It's waaay too modern looking for me. It just seems so severe..but I can see how someone would really like it.

Hmm...I can't see any of these pictures here anymore & it doesn't say what season, but I figured I'd post here instead of starting a new thread.


Image from SHOWstudio.com (where they also have a lovely movie of this model wearing the clothes & interview with Jean Paul Knott)

Stills from the movie:

thanks cerfas...so he's still in business?...
i think i have a skirt from the collection you posted...
it's very hard to find his stuff here in the US...i've only seen it at a small uptown boutique called linda dresner...and at century 21...

i'm a big fan...so simple and so elegant...without being boring...and beautiful construction...he's been around for so long...but i really never hear anything about him....
