But then loads of designers will take cues from him and put out nice collections, and in the end I can't hate.

It may be too early to say this, but so far, this is hands down my favorite collection from NY. I'm loving all that asymmetricality going on, don't know if that's even a word, but you know what I mean. Also loving all that chinoiserie, done in a such a less cheesy way than Jason Wu, and how they manage to keep giving out school girl vibes that I adore so much.
I agree with every word you wrote. I'm also terrified that too much bad press and reviews will persuade the Balenciaga owners to assert pressure on NG to deliver "easier" collections. I actually dislike the collections that received the best reviews and no doubt sold better - the frilly "Balmain-ish" collection comes to mind, though of course it was Balenciaga that inspired Balmain. I didn't like his last collection either, and I was quite harsh, wonder if I would regret it when others start "interpreting" it... No matter, he is quite a fashion "great" now, belonging in the same pantheon as Raf Simons and Martin Margiela.

And of course it is much easier to get it right for the others (the MJs, Rodartes, Pedro Lourencos and Proenza Schoulers) after seeing the original up close with its experimental flaws, warts and all..and then to do it better. The true test is delivering that first startling collection that is original, fresh and divides opinion.

Reminds me a lot of Balenciaga and little bit of Celine but I still love it nonetheless. In my opinion, the best NY collection this season!

I'm not really a fan of the white looks, they do it much better when it comes to different colours, textures, fabrics. Stunning collection I don't see it as a copy+paste from Balenciaga.
