I cannot remember a single designer that ventured into this 'princess gown' territory and didn't overdo it or reduced a woman to a window display on legs, or a designer that did fantastic suits from beginning to end (Yohji Yamamoto 2003) leaving little room for elements that are almost scary for all the clichés that surrounds them. Even the furry dresses here are so perfectly made that it's hard to think of a woman wearing them and getting overpowered by them and/or not looking incredible.
This seems like a follow-up to what Christian Dior was doing back in the day.. I think he'd be pleased, cause all the experiments are still happening in details, discreetly just like his work, and they're very likely evolve in the coming seasons.
I could not agree more with this. I just opened onto the pictures and it was....perfection. The tailoring, the detail, the precision but with some foresight. Things don't have to be an elaborate embroidered taffeta explosion to be amazing, and I just feel like Raf captured the true spirit of the house with the collection. It's so sharp - I can't wait to see what he does with RTW.
