wow, i just LOVE how laughably biased the tFS crowd is. how people always HEAP undiluted praises on Lanvin, Givenchy and Prada (among others) but never fail to piss on Dior, Gucci, Balmain etc.. always finding faults on the latter's styling, accessories, inspiration, use of fur, simplicity.... my goodnessssssss..

i don't see anything remotely beautiful in this at ALL. some dresses were OK, yeah, but putting the price tags in perspective, i'd rather wait for department store rip offs of this chic but cheap looking dresses and splurge on that must-have bag that is very rarely imitated. Alber's past collections, including last season's, were all fantastic. i loved F/W 09 and maybe it's just me but it seems like he can't get over this type of ruched-style dresses.. all this while THE REST OF TFS throw rotten tomatoes (virtually, anyway) at Balmain for sticking to the style that has made the brand so famous.

overrated.

Seems as if he gave his best designs to H&M. This was not a very good collection imo.

I LOVE Lanvin as always, but it's hard to say if I love this collection. It's sure Alber revolutionized the color and style, but somehow I found my love for him became a "boring surprise". I've been waiting for the show from February, yet when it came out it just elicits a "Wow", nothing more, nothing less. Is Alber too good to be fresh?

Totally with you on this one.

I was not impressed at all with this collection...

It's uncomparable to the spring/summer or pre-fall collections.

Now that I've seen the detailed pics, I'm even more in love with this. That jewellery looks so awesome.
