Terrible, as usual. Am I the only who thinks that it's absolutely shapeless?

you are right it is quite shapeless, but some other designers do quite shapeless stuff which I think is good - Marni is arguably quite shapless. s'pose I just find it boring. the jackets are especially boring I think.

just saw the pic of jlo - looks like her 'glow' has gone radioactive!

Not only is it terrible and shapeless, it is boring, derivative, repetitive, and unimaginative.

I think the shoes look gross. The only thing I liked was that turquoise bag dress on Karolina in the finale. And even that was sans shape and borderline ugly.

Metal-on-metal, we share very similar opinions, fabulous summation!

i can't say i'm disappointed really...because i didn'treally expect much...but i agree with helena...shapeless can be fine...dries, marni, cdg...all my favorites do that kind of stuff...

i see dries in the layered dresses at the end...i see marni in the baggy crropped pants with jackets...and johnny very kindly showed us the sweater marc copied...

but this is just some watered down version of those designers...even the shoes are disappointing this time...and aren't the colours more appropriate for marc by mj???

do you notice that every time you see someone wearing marc from last season...they look terribly dated and out of place...his clothes are not good...not good.. not good...*shakes head...

Dead right about the dries thing softgrey, hadn't really noticed that before, but also see it in the coat shapes. Oh and one other thing - the red and blue rugby top is exactly the same as a clements ribiero cashmere top from a few years ago - same pattern (although this admittedly is not unique to CR) and shades of colour.

I have heaps to say but can't get the time to say it - too much work to do.... softgrey - I totally agree about the looking dated after one season thing. marc is so flash in the pan - in many ways.

I like these very much , otherwise, the rest of the collection is boring, overly "vintage" ...overly floral. The checked pieces especially, are completely drab. I would not think of wearing them.

yes, but isn't Dries' shapelessnes draping and flowing? This is just badly cut.

yes faust...because it has been watered down for the american market...just give it up...you won't find anything really artistic coming form the american market...

we can only hope that more young europeans and japanese and south americans choose to show here...but even then...they probably won't sell here very well...
that's why i keep watching gary graham and now tess giberson...it's so rare to see genuine creativity coming from an american designer...design, yes...but not artfulness...

I found it unexciting and overly child-like. Agree with the dated thing too. I wonder why all the celebrities flock to his shows?
