I love Louise Goldin! The mini-dresses are on point, they're very OLD Ghesquiere for Balenciaga. Now that I find Balenciaga disappointing every season, I'm hoping she'll step up.

I'm actually really digging the "linebacker chic" looks

The shapes are definately balenciaga, no doubt but I really love the heavy textures and shapes she's using. That one blue polo neck top is particularly nice

they look like robots without character or a personality

its nice that she's so creative but i think that women-designers have that advantage to think more about the person wearing it, since they can place themselves in their feet

seems like she skipped that part, it seems a bit overdesigned

you know i think she really tried this season but somehow it doesn't resonate. i kind of wish she would go back to what she doing in her first seasons. the knitting,as always,is immaculate though.

i think this is so literal and brash, she has not interpreted anything here.

Oh this is just so so vile... No no no no... its just so clueless and a poor stylistic attempt at being modern knitwear... I really don't see the relevance of this considering some of the brilliant talent out there!

I like this a lot. I was looking at it on style.com & really found the process behind this collection intriguing. I'd wear some of it! Futuro-rustic knitwear FTW, haha.

STYLE.COM:
LONDON, February 11, 2008 – It's only her second season showing, but Louise Goldin stepped onto the runway with a reputation for pushing sweater dressing into a new zone of fashion relevance. After her small but widely acclaimed Spring show of bright, short shapes, she needed to over-deliver to impress, and she knew it. "Since the minute I finished the last collection," she explained, "I was researching Inuit culture and sci-fi, experimenting with computer programs so I could mix traditional pattern with the pixelation you'd see on a monitor screen." The result: a parade of "Space Eskimos" equipped with short multi-patterned dresses, some padded, others armorlike in the shoulder; thermal body-hugging catsuits; and fur-trimmed jersey parkas. (In a prestigious collaboration for a young designer, Pierre Hardy stepped in to design the shoes—fab patent cutaway high heels with integrated stripy socks.) The result, close-up, is a feat of engineering ingenuity that also contains a lot of sensible girl-think, which should put her in good stead as the chill winds of recession set in. Break down this sophomore collection, and buyers will find roomy sweater dresses and regular knits alongside the more demanding fit-and-flare body-con pieces and the pricier fox-trimmed jackets.

I looked at some old Balenciaga shows and this mirrors the S/S 03 "scuba" collection.

i sort of like what's going on here...
and it is certainly very cool for editorial use...
the fringe with the futuristic feel is a novel combo...which i love...

but in real life...
padded knits are kind of a hard sell...
most women have enough padding of their own..they don't want any extra...
