it seems that SO many designers forget who they are designing for.

we aren't MEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

those dolts prenza schoeler do it too.... tiny tiny bustier tops with a potato sack like emphasis on the hips. SO unflattering... even on the models.



i just don't get it anymore.

i can't believe we're looking at the same picture...i think this is lovely...this is great for an older woman who might be very elegant but wears , maybe, a size 12 and wants an alternative to the overplayed chanel suit or the dumpy, often boring armani...

i could see the late elizabeth tilberis wearing this to shows if she were still around...imagine judy dench...lovely... is the only word i can think of...

Ok, aside from the shoes, which I think are quite nice, and that black sheer, full-skirted dress, this collection was way too similar to his previous ones. I feel like I've seen this all before. Even that black dress bares a srtiking resemblence to some of the gowns he did for F/W 03 and S/S 04. I can appreciate his vision of what a woman should look like, but he needs to evolve it a bit more quickly. Fashion is way too fickle for a slow process. Yes, the clothes are nice, and well crafted but he needs to expand on that. It doesn't feel new, or exciting and the color palette doesn't look like it changed from last season. In a season where so many designers are doing bold, vibrant colors, I find this collection kinda boring.

This is Oliver's best collection @ Rochas. He's found a signature look (the armor-like shoulers, the round necks, the lace, the lingerie details), and he's done a good job evolving it. The shoes are in amazing shades but perhaps a bit too radical.

I love that ivory-colored dress Elise wore.




And this look is very Lanvin, SS04

The coats stop me from loving the collection, but I understand they aren't aimed at me, and yes I can easily imagine them on the older woman. The shoes and the lighter pieces and in particular the long pink dress, I really approve. I just hope the waist distortions are coming to an end, as tealady hinted- they really don't improve the female form. But those shoes do and so I will forgive.

I love the shoes, but the heels are way too high for my liking.

He needs to drop the teeny boob cups. They're an accident waiting to happen, even for the smallest breasted of ladies.

This collection just reminded me way too much of Proenza Schouler.

pointed toes and all.. its old and boring really
plus all this metallic leather is making me :dizzy:

as for the 'fat chic' look, please, i could not wear this even at 65
even if Theyskens payed me honestly, i'm all for experimental, unusual
and creative design, but this ..its all wrong (in my eyes anyway)


anyway, taste is a very personal matter i guess.. i hope i have not offended anyone
