Can someone verify for me? I don't recall Roland has A/W 06 collection. His last runway show was S/S 06. If he didn't have A/W 06 collection, how did he cancel th orders written in NY? Did I miss something?

Eh...in theory, but not necessarily. Helmut's stuff sure hasn't gone up in value. Seems to have either stayed the same or even gone down a bit.

Sad news.

I know. I ran to get a dress from him yesterday and brought it home on approval. I think I am going to send it back. what do you guys think?

I only took my head off to keep creeps from coming and making comments. plus I didn't have any make up on...wouldnt do the dress justice!

It looks like he found a role of fabric used to make potholders, then transformed it into a dress.

I'd return it.

thanks I needed that. It looks pretty good on...but its like $1550...and I never have a problem paying for that if I love it...but this I was unsure. Its not well sewn and there isn't much to it for that price.

I tried a few dresses on at the place that are also on net-a-porter and they didn't fit that well...hugged in all the bad places.

SO its going back....and I will get the oversized white muse YSL instead and my Derek Lam trunk show pre order is in!!!

This just keeps on getting worst and worst...
leyla m., please keep us informed on what's going on inside the company
it's killing me that such a talented (and successful) designer and his eponymous brand would go through such troubles

hahaha...
my my...what dramatic reactions...

it's not the end of the world here ...
i think it's only logical that the season got cancelled...
who could have expected things to carry on as usual knowing that mouret had quit...??
he should have just left right away...once he had made the decision...imo...

i mean....does anyone realy think the designs would have been any good anyway...once he knew he was leaving?...
would YOU create beautiful clothes for people you hate to sell and make money from?...
makes no sense...

best thing to cancel...
now he needs to start fresh elsewhere...
