What is avant-garde about this collection ? What is haute-couture about it ?
Raf "LAZY" Simons gets the credit for his name, not for the quality of his work. I have attended fashion shows, and when you see wonderful pieces, your eyes shine. Like mine when I was 10 cm away from the A/W 2011 Givenchy Haute-Couture collection.
So many weak sihlouettes, come on, tailored pants with embroided tops ? It screams sales, sales, sales. Gaytton was way more better at this game. And I am kinda missing the crazyness of Galliano that would make you travel in a special universe and mesmerize you, even it was about excess and provocation. Monsieur Simons is "out at the picture" for me. As a client of his menswear line, I just miss the energy he got in the 90's with his very personnal take on garments, models, presentations.
AND I AM SO TIRED of finding excuses to those lazy designers, they have the money, the atelier and the press to approve their work even when it's irrelevant , this collection is just another proof of it...
