The second last (or third) dress in #7 reminds me of Thankoon from a couple seasons back.

But I do like the use of purple here; it's so different. Using it throughout lends everything a nice, tight cohesion. However, it could be an issue for those who don't like purple (though there are a few black and white looks for them).

I much preferred his fall collection but this is pretty good.

The color combination plus the cut outs make it look harsh and tacky to me. The dresses without cutouts look better but I'm not a fan of the overall styling with the make-up and the hair. It lacks sophistication and lightness imho.

Exactly what I was thinking.

The references to all the other designers mentioned already are GLARING. This is a lot better than last season, BUT, honestly, this is one label that really has nothing to say or offer.

The first dress is like a mix of Givenchy (from Spring Haute Couture collection...specifically reminds me of the gown Florence Welch wore to the Grammys) and McQueen (the print that became one of his signature styles during his last few years).

To be honest, this brand offers not much other than red carpet-friendly dresses, and he couldn't even do that this time.

I see a mix of Givenchy, Versace & even some Christopher Kane. The collection itself is not bad, but the blatant plagiarism is what is so bothersome.

The first thing I thought was "Givenchy" when I saw the prints... and some of the cutouts remind me of Alexandre Vauthier HC Spring 2011.
Some dresses look nice, but a lot of them are really unflattering. Also the makeup is a big mess like last season's makeup.

i see nothing even remotely alluring with this collection, and each new collection just proves how derivative his designs are. if you're out to create unwearables then at least have the decency to make it look original; yet he still couldn't cut it

The cutouts are simply amazing... I cannot wait to see how this collection translates to real life and editorials...

This is pretty much a Givenchy rip off with Giles SS 2010 sunglasses.

In 20 or 30 years when some hot to trot designer does an homage to Ricardo Tisci a collection like this will be ok. But since the ideas Gurung is ripping off are only a season or two old it's really just embarrassing. Who does he think he is fooling? Everyone it seems. And he'll probably get away with it.
