That is exactly what I was thinking!!
I love how they slowly add more daywear pieces into their collections.

Also love the shoes, I think Nicholas Kirkwood designed them this time..

Wait a minute...this is EXACTLY like their fall collection. The nude dresses, the fishnet stockings, the color palette of pink and black.

the runway is so cool
this does, however, remind me a lot of last season, and i don't like the leggings. although i applaud them for trying some new things this season

Now I know what's with the whole Balenciaga-like affair, not only beacuse of the draped pieces, some skirts looked really Balenciaga FW 08 as well. The only thing I like is the setting, really cool. Plus Sasha in the finale, of course

ok i can see why some people are saying its the same thing with slight variations. and i agree with that, however i also feel like there is a sense of direction. i like the addition of the chains and the cut outs. though it's not completely different from last season, it doesn't need to be. as long as they are making subsantial progress, that's fine by me.

I like it but it's a bit repetitive... I was expecting something new... However, I like the jackets.

it's sooo punk.
i really love it. i more and more appreciate them since i'm seeing them everywhere in editorials .... and soooo much more since i saw irl what the outfits look like ..... it's GENIUS !!!! though you really need money .... because i'm not sure you can wear more than once an outfit ..... it's sooo fragile !!

i didn't enjoy their first collections on first sight ...

Aside maybe from the leggings and those few stiff wrap skirts (which btw Ghesquiere did not invent) where are the Balenciaga similarities?

Most of this looks very much like their own work, and if the comments accusing this collection of being the same as their past two collections are anything to go by, then it's an extremely individual aesthetic.

After watching the vid, it's actually very different from the past two seasons, if not in the designs then in the mood. There's nothing sugary or overtly romantic about this at all. If anything I got a sort of Mad Max dystopian future vibe from it. Even the painted chiffon is tougher looking than in the past, it's more slick and aggressive.
