Hum .. the big problem with this is .. I love the concept, but not the execution.

I mean, this is better than last season´s, but still is wrong. Its like looking at Helmut Lang or Martin Margiella nowadays .. there's something off and lacking and that makes me second-guess myself when Im holding the garment when buying it at some store.

I hope this improves.

I know its really easy to hate on this because, lets face it, Formichetti is pretty annoying. I have to say though, as derivative as it is, its a million times better than the last collection. Its more wearable and the pieces seem to have a lot more thought put into the design and construction.

I remember seeing the last collection hanging in Opening Ceremony and it was so ridiculous I couldn't even imagine their clientele buying it. This is definitely a step in the right direction.

This right here.

Except I don't think it's a million times better. Maybe 10 times better?
I do like a few of the dresses.

If this feels like Mugler at all, it feels a little like Limp Mugler, Mugler gone soft. I always picture Mugler as hard and sexy (remember Jerry Hall struting out on the Mugler runways?) - this is something entirely different.

I think the intentions were good, but he didn't manage to do it properly.
