It's ,for me, a perfect collection designed by Bill Gaytten. And please people, we are not more stupid than you, we know haute couture means
Which aspect of the construction or fabric is RTW and not Haute Couture?
What's irritating is that people saw a double-breasted red coat-dress once at Ann Taylor once and think they're seeing the same here and declare that this isn't "haute couture". They probably look at a bespoke suit and declare it's nothing special because they have seen the exact same style at Brooke's Brothers.
Without extravagant flourishes that look mystifying, it is assumed it isn't haute couture. This is completely insulting to the designers and staff who labor for hours to construct toiles, mold seams, hand-cut every piece, hand-stitch every last detail to perfection.
