^ I agree with you about the cuts.

All around it just seems sloppy, vague and amateurish to me

I like how everyone is putting in mens looks in their shows. Makes me more interested.

YAY!

I really like a lot from what I am seeing so far, United Bamboo keeps on getting better with every season...! I got excited when I first saw the shirt dresses they did for last season's S/S collection, this in a way seems like a great continuation of that feel!

I don't care that much for the neckholder shirt-dress with stripe-y top underneath (seen it before, looks a little too forced and 'funky' to me), HOWEVER, I love:

# The dress on Iekeliene, the drop-waist silhouette is great and I like that they didn't cut the sleeves too short
# The seersucker suit with pleated shorts... actually the first suit of that kind that convinced me... I also really like the textured shirt with bow-tie, so cute but not sugar-y... :p
#The off-white, ruffled shirt and skirt combo that looks like a dress - how great this could look in between seasons contrasted with black opaques!

That off-white men's trench doesn't look too bad at all as does the cardigan and polo with contrast piping... really nice pieces, I can't say it reminds me of Jil Sander though... maybe the models?

I think it looks like a combination of Jil sander, prada and miu miu...
i saw very similar pieces indeed from previous collections...

I'm not crazy about the wide cut of those little jumpsuits and suspendered pieces.

Criticisms aside, I do love that satiny polka dotted skirt. I like how the dots are packed closely together in the print; it's a little bit fresher that way.
