Maybe they want to give Nicholas Ghesquiere back those great Balenciaga shoes from Fall 2008...Could they be any more blatantly copied. Same point and metallic leather. They're too familiar in my mind, my mother has three pairs!

And what a hideous collection. A disaster of poor tailoring and weak attempts at interesting cuts. It is just a mess! gaga or no gaga, this SUCKS!

This is stunning. The fit, the cuts, the colour palette. Simple and chic!

He's playing more with Thierry Mugler's DNA here with the cuts but it looks like all the pieces were just done for the sake of it.

Hideous. What a heinous color palette.

I agree with the execution of the clothing. Everything feels as if they were cut simply for the sake of trying to create something interesting. Pretty grotesque in my opinion. I feel sorry for the fabrics. They might as well be shredded.

This is pathetic. Looks like they gave a 2 year old a scissor and let him cut the fabrics. So unflattering and amateur, there's not a single thing that appeals me in this collection.

Is there anymore photos?

I actually quite like this. It's more tame in comparison to last season's fiasco. It's not overbearingly sexy and the fit on the pants are great. It's a bit referential, which is the only problem I really have with this collection. The overall styling is a bit Balenciaga and Armani put together with a hint of Mugler.

Some of the overcoats and mini jackets look interesting.

Of course it looks like F!CKING Balenciaga, Sebastien Peigne spent 10 years there.

I don't like this collection as Thierry Mugler collection, but if you ignore the fact that they're trying to compete with his greatness it's not a completely bad collection, it does have some highlights. But some things are just a bit too much Star Wars for me.

I came out in support of Formichetti's 'old designer's get out of the way' bombastics earlier in the summer. I liked the thrust of what he was saying and I'm not one who's put off by a bit of audacious promotion just because it is audacious.

But what you don't then do is give the world a collection that's cut as badly as this one. Nearly all the looks have an area that isn't sitting right. Lumps and bumps. And not in a CdG way. Just bad technique.

Furthermore, the leather pieces (I think it's leather not pvc) near the end of the collection do appear to be fabricated with cheap looking hides.

I do like the 'feel' of the collection, it's positioning. But give me Haider Ackermann instead every time.

Which leads to the final point. If you're going to give it large with controversial press outpourings ahead of a collection then make sure you can walk the walk too. After all the puff, I was expecting something groundbreaking, something shocking. But we didn't even get originality.

I was willing to support him. But he set himself up for a fall. Then took one.

I agree that the collection has a "feel" to it, and that's primarily its saving grace. And honestly speaking, if you look at Formichetti's past styling jobs, he relies very heavily on this "feel" considering his styling point of view is not really conventional in comparison to the styling of let's say.... Grace Coddington.

And just like last season, this collection's styling overshadows the actual design. There is a different head designer and for some reason the designer doesn't seem to mesh well with Formichetti's styling aesthetic.
