This FW is SO bleak so far.

What a disastrous collection. What was so bad about this show, and about Prabal actually, is the absolute lack of personality and creative direction. Almost every piece came down with a deja vu feeling attached to it, just a bunch of random stuff thrown in together. Nothing new, nothing exciting, nothing good.

Messy and not at all cohesive. Especially the first and second parts, they could be two different collections.

Shockingly bad, it seems like he changed direction of the collection half way through, and that is never a good look. And then it just all looks so unflattering on models, the critics will rave anyway though, i am sure.......

This looks to be a HUGE misstep for him. The biggest problem for me is not how haphazard this is, not the similarities to other designers and not the lack of a direction but the fact that he abandoned all of his strengths. He does great, sharp tailoring. He does interesting embellishment on simple pieces. He does a sexy party dress. Why would he go for volume and layers and trailing bits and all of this superfluous crap when none of it is really in his wheelhouse?

Also, the prints. Last spring his prints were striking and beautiful, and they worked for the concept. Fall's were interesting but overly-complicated. Now the whole print-on-print thing is just tired and seems like an automatic response as opposed to a well thought out idea.

i find it a bit cringey how he's trying to be all urban and edgy, with the bloody nail art for example..
while he's really as edgy as oscar de la renta

I hated this show. Someone mentioned how hectic the presentation was and I agree. The models walked too fast, it was dark...maybe he knew it was subpar.

Lol, was thinking the same thing.
What could have possibly gone wrong here? Somebody must have seen this happening, why did nobody step in? Especially some of those dresses look like craft projects at the Jetson house..
