Ugh, glad I'm not the only one who really isn't feeling this collection.

More coherent thoughts to come....

I love this. I like collections that tell stories and this is one of them. It's a progression from the previous season but with modifications. Pastoral image is maintained, in the previous show the wheat fields and now sunflowers , the color palette is similar, the clothes are more fluffy and less structured as the F/W 2011.12 collection. I think it's wonderful the magic halo that these sisters get into their shows.

I don't necessarily hate this, but it reminds of last season collection. Waiting for the full HQ collection to be posted so that I can make a final judgement.

I LOVE some of it. But other aspects? Meh. Somewhat ugly. Frumpy. But some of the pieces are gorgeous.

Im mixed about this collection. I love the theme (Van Gogh Paintings) and I felt that there was A LOT more wearable clothing than the previous collections. I felt that some of the pieces were unflattering, but for the most part, I think the collection was good.

some very pretty pieces! Some, not so much...

What I love about them is that their shows are so unlike anyone out there at the moment. I think they are very, very important for fashion right now; they do their own thing and they commit to it all the way. Some of it might be too extreme, but it has a very strong vision.

Most beautiful shades of yellow and blue I have ever seen. I think it's quite an achievement that they've litteraly splattered Van Gogh's Sunflowers all over the dresses and not make it look tacky.

They're such storytellers, love it.

^ I thought the colors and sunflowers were dreamy as well
I can't wait to see HQs. I greatly prefer it over their Fall collection, which was too literal for me.

Are the sunflowers from the first dress from Van Gogh´s painting?

I mean, Im surprised the Mulleavy´s chose to do yellow, being kind of a tricky color, but I do think it´ll stand out in the racks ...

Now .. I want to see more ... Im surprised of how overtly sexy some of the pieces look

Wow! What a fantastic continuation from last season. I love the prairie vibes of it.

They're truly creating a distinct aesthetic that's very much their own.
