Mary is such a talent.

Last season's venture into blurriness of print was good but I'm pleased to see her return to three dimensional forms flattened as per the perfume bottle collection. This time the more panoramic vistas are pleasing.

The play on the everyday, domestic object written into a garment was something picked up by Balenciaga last season. I don't say that Ghesquiere necessarily borrowed ideas from Mary but that those lines of influence might have occured tells us how good Mary is.

One of the best collections thus far. No one is doing what she is; they're trying, maybe, but certainly not executing it the way she is. Innovative, well executed, but still incredibly chic.

I really like the prints, but I just don't know how many people would want to wear the (uncomfortable-looking) clothes?

Can't believe how much my views on this collection have changed. I guess some things just need to marinate to truly understand them
