every London-based designer seems to move out for that reason. I wonder if NYC is a better option for them, though, cause so far, it's proved to be quite the barrier for them to get their point across.. Preen, Staerk, Walker.. they all dried out in ideas the moment they decided to go there.

It's so weird. It has hints from loads of designers I think...Chloe, Balmain, Balenciaga, Versace, Chanel. I dont hate it though, I really like the leather piece on Catherine and the white dress on natasha. The colourful dresses are kinda boring. I dunno, its a hard collection to digest.

I thought the last few dresses are kinda funny. It's like a animtion of their aesthetics.

Overall, the collection looks really Preen of course. With the plays of fabric placements over sheer. The fur pieces are kinda unexpected, but overall, a really strong collection.

have you noticed out of all the london to NY designers,boudicca has been the only one that's really never wavered their ideas? of course they do have amex behind them,supporting all of their ideas.

They apparently stopped getting AMEX sponsorship, probably already by the time they started showing in Paris instead of New York.

Other than that, it's a pretty forgettable collection from Preen - they've done a lot better while they were still showing in London, what happened with their wonderfully deconstructed pieces? I know it doesn't make you a business to cut off vintage burberry trenches and create weird tops out of them, but I am feeling their recent design is looking more and more unpurposeful and fussy.

i see. but they were funded by them when they created wode....so that must be relatively recent?

anyway,i agree about the recycled stuff thea and justin did. that was so the point of them at that time...how they could literally transform something like a classic trench,into something completely and extraordinarily designed. they had ideas and vision behind all of that and its really a shame they abandoned it because i always felt aside from margiela they were the most original.
