Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi found a hit with their Preen "Power" bandage dress and siphoned that success into this year's diffusion line Preen Line — which has been doing so well the designers are said to be mulling a separate runway show for it at the upcoming London Fashion Week. The same line of thought — reworking what already works — is how they approached their Cruise 2010 collection — hence their trademark bandage minidresses, cutouts, and shimmery fabrics from past seasons made new with a little texture.

I WANT IT ALL. My BBF wants me to wear their bandage dress as my bridesmaid dress at her wedding. Man I hope it comes true.

super messed up priorities, methinks. it's like designers increasingly spring/summer and fall/winter ready-to-wear are for their experimental fantasies and the pre-fall and resort collections are to sell.

with that said, this collection is like a bridge line for balmain. cute, but clearly derivative.

I've never warmed up to the new direction that Preen has been showing for a while, kinda Herve Leger/A.Wang/Balmain mix bag. So this is no exception, it looks lazy and uninspiring, sort of like "let's re-use all the patterns we have done for the past seasons and do them up in different fabrications and trims, and call it Resort".

Is it me or is the hair and makeup very Kristen Stewart?!

I like the second dress through. I wish the hair was up so we'd get a better look, though.
