i don't want to think this is because of milan's disappointment (sauf prada, jil sander, fendi..) but all of a sudden everything i am seeing in paris looks just ravishing to me

speaking of this particular show, i have to say that i've loved all the collections he's done for the house and this is no exception! if people asked for a change last season, there you have it! i cant complain because i like both the old and the new!
until this moment there had always been a few common elements that defined the nina ricci girl/woman by olivier, and while a certain delicacy had always been present, i am glad it has gone away this time. I'm glad to see that the collection remains true to what he has been doing until now and that the key elements that make them look as a whole wasnt something as easy and spottable as the light romanticism (very trendy a couple of season ago, but already a bit passé now).
this season he has incorporated the 80s and he has done it in a fun way. including slight hints of shoulder-pads and neon would have seemed coward of him. a bold statement like this seems a lot more mature to me and a lot more daring.
in a few seasons the 80s will go and something new will appear... so why not just have fun and enjoy this for some time! it's carnival this season!

i sort of hate the 80's but the razersharp shoulders here are gorgeous. some of the pieces are too much and over the top, especially for nina ricci.

Paris is officially on fire. The devils of imagination have been set loose.
I think this is stunning. A collection that stands for fantasy, imagination, wit..real editorial value too.

I saw someone say Dynasty with stripper shoes, there's definitely a lot of humour in it, I really really appreciate that.

And I must mention, the VERY first thing that came to my mind was, "Theysekens is going back to his roots..." Theyskens "before" wasn't Rochas, his very first collections were very gothic and very subverted. Latex bodysuits..the whole shabang.



P.S. I must jump on the "love those shoes" train.

Well, prior to this I saw Balmain, so I knew it couldn't get any WORSE, anyway... I actually like the idea of those hats haha. The shoes are nice in concept (huge lace-up platforms) but i don't like them at all in this show.

I can't decide if its a yes or no in my book.

^^ i love the shoes from the front... the behind just left me thinking... too bad, they'll just end up chopping off the platform to get a "normal" shoe for the stores..

Well, while I agree that his work prior to Rochas was more gothic, subversive and raw, it certainly wouldn't call it garish. Which is what this collection is, in my opinion. So in that respect, I would not consider this collection on par with any of his pre-Rochas collections.

Everything was poetic, mysterious, delicate. FW 09 possesses none of those qualities. Some examples of past Theyksens-
SS 02/ FW 01

FW 00

FW 99

Various

omg, this is so much fun. I love to watch this! it's so much better than balenciaga and balmain we've seen today. it's quite "space" but still down to earth. well, not the shoes.

I'm not going to claim to have the best memory of his early work before he went to Rochas, but from what I do remember, this really bears no resemblance to it. I mean, I don't remember his namesake collections looking this over the top and, I hate to use the word since it's not the best way of describing it, kitschy. A lot of this stuff looks more along the lines of what someone like Gaultier or Galliano might do when they're in couture mode.

I'm just having a hard time seeing the similarities between this collection and his early work.

ETA: dior_couture beat me to the punch. Now I see why I can't picture the similarities, there aren't any.
