The dress Karlie and Jourdan are wearing are stunning!! I agree that is very rodarte but they are creating a signature. I think is very nice! I really like what Ive seen so far, nice collection. and I also love the black pieces dresses, the pants with the leather.

I actually wasn't even responding to what you said.

And for me it's a case by case situation. My feelings on what one designer should be doing don't apply to all of the designers who's work I look at. For instance, I remember feeling very strongly about Tisci not evolving enough at Givenchy last year. My feelings of frustration towards that collection stemmed from the fact that I didn't see much evolution, I saw the same exact thing that Tisci has been doing since he started....that's 3 years ago.

Or perhaps it's just that I see some merit in these designers doing what they do. I never said that I liked that they're doing watercolor chiffon again, but I think they've shown enough growth in their work to make me a bit more patient with them.

For two girls with little formal fashion education, this is really terrific stuff and would make Vivienne Westwood foam at the mouth with pleasure that she has left such a rich legacy. Or do I mean Zandra Rhodes?...

Please do not post your pictures in endless horizontal lines as is requested in the Designers & Collections posting etiquette. Thank you.

As for the collection, I have to say that it is indeed very reminiscent of last season in particular. That collection was spectactular and as there is a lot of beauty in this one as well, my feelings of awe and excitement are redeemed by the fact that a lot of the materials, shapes and colors seem to be so much alike last season. Right now this collection feels like another 30 looks for FW 0809 with the addition of some totally hot black leather. Maybe if I can let it digest for a moment I will be more enthusiastic...

I really love the black leather pieces. I see this as a gradual progression. None of the pieces simply look like rejects from last season, it's more of a continuation. Maybe they felt as though they still had more to build on the ideas of previous seasons. So much more refreshing than the designers who seem to constantly re-invent themselves, only to fall flat.

Ok wait, let me rephrase that already after taking a second look....it's more of continuation than a repetition if that makes sense. They seem to be building further and further on an aesthetic instead of repeating it. Hmmm I already like it more after thinking that :p

The gowns are to die for btw

Perfection!
There is not one look I dislike here, its just fabulous!
I especially love that this season it feels slightly more edgier on some of the pieces.
If only I could own ANY of these pieces!
