Alessandra didin't have to copy exactly what he was doing, which wasn't that great imo.
Well I think when you're taking over for a fashion house you should stay true to that style that made them what they are. Sure styles can change over time but she just took over and I barely see any "Valentino" at all.

this is what i feel aswell.
i mean, this isnt ugly or bad, it's just plain blah to me.... i have to say i expected worse, but anyway, im not liking it (even not considering it's valentino)

I am very impressed with her first collection. It's nothing spectacular and I do see YSL in it, but I'm excited to see where she will take the label.

And I like how she tried to maintain the Valentino aesthetic in the clothes.

Yeah, it's kinda disappointing. It's not really ugly or terrible or anything, just sort of bland-ish.

I'm not feeling it, it's underwhelming and oh so very disappointing.
I don't understand how Alessandra now has an amazing brand to design for, and this is what she executes?

For me its not Valentino at all. Its not bad but its not that good as i know this from Valentino. I miss the elegance and the amazing evening gowns he was known for.

It looks a bit too YSLish but it's gorgeous! I am pround of Alessandra! It's very hard to take place of someone like Valentino, and she did it very well and I am glad she is making the house move into a different direction!
