Love this. It's so witty. The prints are amazing. Glad she was able to find a way to grow the brand while retaining the spirit of what she's all about.

? I don't recall any previuos collections of hers where she used stamps and money as subject matter on boxy shapes like this.

this is perfect i am so happy the prints arent as heavy or obnoxious, and the silhouettes are wearable and translatable for real, functioning lives

Some of these dresses could be beautiful if the shape weren't so unflattering and unwearable. It's hard enough finding a woman who wants to look like a postage stamp. Finding a woman who wants to do so while also looking shapeless and heavy is even harder.

I love how she went a bit more ... I want to say minimal than on previous seasons.

The stamp print is unforgettable. I truly hope to see the collections heavily featured on editorials soon.

The shapes are interesting and I see day. Honestly, this seems much more wearable and commercial.

Id love to be a heiress and step in or out on my yacht wearing this.

Funny how no one ever complains when a designer only uses solids, and never uses prints.
Thank you. No one bats an eye when Karl does the 10000th tweed jacket for Chanel because it's one of Chanel's signature pieces. Karl makes changes in fabric, embellishment and shape each season in order to keep it updated, and the exact same thing is done by Mary. Yes, those digital prints are her signature but every season she has a different inspiration, different combination and of course diffferent silhouettes.

The stamp idea is quite humorous and clever but I'm not a big fan of the dresses, they sort of look frumpy. I do love the electric blue suit though as well as the printed one.

Awful prints and unflattering shapes.

I must say I'm loving this collection right now. When I posted that comment only 2 looks had been posted, I just judged this collection too early.

She really needs to try something new for a change. She isn't developing the brand enough if you ask me. I do like all the printed suits though, but that sort of goes without saying. I'm such a sucker for any head-to-toe tailored print ensemble.
