Clearly someone saw the leggings line and thought "Now hang on just a minute, we need to tap into this raw talent?! Of course there's far more highly trained people in the industry, with experience and could do with a break, but have you seen these leggings? And tan too! Bottled tan! Sign her now!"

I don't really think that. I think he's doing "Balmain" at Pucci.

When I read this piece of news I was very happy because Cortázar is an awful designer. Ungaro, since Valli's departure has become a company which is wandering aimlessly. I remember when I heard he was going to be hired as the main designer at Ungaro I was very surprised, what a terrible decision!

But... what about Lindsay and Estrella at Ungaro? I have no words.
We're talking about Ungaro. It isn't House of Holland, Gareth Pugh or Alexander Wang, it's serious!!!!

But the worst is that it isn't new: Zanini at Rochas, Cortázar at Ungaro, Cristina's departure at Ferragamo, the ashaming situation of Lacroix while the ultra-talented ( ) Alexander Wang is making a lot of money , Olivier without a job, Aquilano and Rimondo at Ferré, Frida at Gucci, Maria Grazia Chiuri y Pier Paolo Piccioli at Valentino, Decarnin at Balmain...



Just to burst into tears.

oh, decarnin and dundas reference the exact same eighties party girl. dundas designs with a lot more color and pattern than decarnin which feels closer to the spirit of ungaro than balmain.

with this worldwide recession, we're truly witnessing a sea-change in fashion. it's no longer enough to have creativity and talent with respect to sketching and designing clothes. one has to have the ability to create buzz and move product. and do it within a couple of seasons.

It just brings to mind another brand where you can literally point at each look and name the designer that did it within the past two seasons.

I know what you mean. The whole industry has gone backwards and everyone is missing the point.

Exactly. I know the economic times are hard and you must get creative with making profits and promotion, but this is way too much. It seems the days of creative/design merit is gone and in with attention grabbing gimmicks. There are plenty of freshly graduated students that would have killed for something of this sort that with a little cultivation could have done some good. I am really terrified if this is what the industry is coming to. It soon will fall in on itself.

i agree you guys. see this is the kind of situation-as if i wasn't enough already-that makes me even more ambivalent about fashion. i think the entire situation demeans real designers. in the name of profit they hire some half-hack who only makes(and i use that term loosely)leggings and was created in rachel zoe's eyes. this girl has no right nor any position to be heading a big house like this...especially one that's got such a repuatable legacy.

to have a celebrity like this who can't even bother to show up in her real job and hasn't done anything remotely interesting,makes me question the adequacy of it's current owners.

Yes, but remember what Dundas made at Ungaro. His latest show at Ungaro was a bit eighties too, but it had nothing to do with this voguette and pretentious feeling I saw in his fw collection for Pucci.

I hate when people make this statement. Dundas was doing what Balmain is doing now before anyone cared about who Decarnin was.

I don't want to judge before I see what they produce because it could turn out good if you take into account where Arch's has worked in the past.

They really shouldn't have let Dundas go though. He brought such an energy to the house.
