I don't think I have read such mixed reviews until Preen this season.

don't forget wode's been in the making for nearly 7 years now - so it's even been in the planning stage before AMEX came along.

i guess the whole deconstructed, 'studied' thing had it's peak influence in london designers by the time they were still showing in london - think of how jens laugesen also changed for a more refined, couture-minded approach when he started showing again before he eventually closed down... or someone like hamish morrow who would stage fashion shows where models would walk through purple dye as a finishing process in front of the audience? it seems as if hussein chalayan is really the only one these days staying true to an honestly conceptual approach, the younger generation of (london) designers is merely playing with narratives - and really, i'm not seeing a lot of comparable, striking quality and originality when i look in the direction of people like meadham/kirchhoff, danielle scutt or a louise goldin.

damn, what a let down. not to say it's not lovely looking, but for Preen? not up to their true potential, imo.

The leather pieces = WANT.

The patchwork/rainbow dresses remind me of a cross between Pucci and Balenciaga from a few seasons ago.

Even though this collection isn't incredible, I must say I do really like it, the pastel pieces not so much, but the rest of the collection, and especially the monochrome pieces are really great. I'd definitely wear quite a lot of this.

This collection is so-so... I feel like they didn't know what direction to go in.

Really hit or miss. The yellow jacket is fantastic but I really don't understand the hounds-tooth pieces, it seems tired. It's definitely a collection of variety with the reviews to match it.
