I thought he was giving the brand a nice, fresher, feel and look.
He was injecting spirit back into the house, but at the same time, the injections were somewhat intoxicating. Overall, he was moving the house forward and now once again it is at a standstill. BTW is he still with his partner or have things changed? I read somewhere he was photographed with a male model, who is not his partner?
Esteban Cortazar named newest Ungaro designer
i am truly shocked by this...i don't think he's ready at all...
not a particularly good choice, to say the least.
very surprising and very daring choice ..it's such a shame because I was sort of starting to like Dundas at Ungaro. This choice for Esteban seems very random....there were many great other options I suppose and this doesnt strike to me as the best option for Ungaro
on the other hand...I'm extremely curious about his first collection for Ungaro now.
What in the world? This is the most surprising decision. Whatever prompted them to choose him...where has his own line even been the past few seasons
this is weird...
i admit that his flow-y drape-y sexy party dresses are not so far from vintage ungaro...
but i don't see him as having ANY vision..
maybe they got him cheap?
^Ah yes, back to home...that makes the choice even more random
more from FWD
Terrible terrible choice, but happy for a young designer to get something. But still terrible!
yes I'll chime and say it's odd as well. I've never been a fan of his designs which have always seemed a bit....one dimensional to me. But who knows.....
Ick, that's the first and only reaction.
His stuff (back when he showed at NY fashion week anyway) was like wannabe Versace with a touch of uninspired student design.
I think he's been preparing all his life for something just like this and he's got my support. For a season at least. Don't screw up this chance.
yeah it's rather an unsavoury choice,if you ask me too. like softie said in miami--and definitely where his cheap aesthetics habitate. i really don't get this kind of marriage--even though he does make flowy silhouettes it's just a bit too garish and sleazy for ungaro,i think. it's not even in the slightest elegant cortazar's work compared with what we know of his[emmanuel's]legacy.
or perhaps we're just being clueless to the fact that they'll have someone so naive about fashion that they'll have ample oppurtunity to dictate him easily. i mean,come on,why would they want to heave forth with somebody with ideals after the valli situation?
and yes,i am being harsh
^ you're so not being harsh. this is the worst idea ever.
dundas was doing well at ungaro, imo..... what happened with him? he was just there for 2 seasons! is it that his designs weren't selling? (not like anyone was buying ungaro anyway )
I'm really excited about this!
Dundas was 3 seasons there, and he was a genius, really revitalized the spirit of the house...after so many mistakes with Darre
I don't remember any stuff from esteban, that's one point to say i don't like him, or that he never did anything remarkable
Can someone post any collection of Cortazar?
I don't know what they are with the labels...it looks so unestable, and so amateur playing, changing designers so often really hurts House's names, not help them
I'm not familiar with Cortazar's designs, so I can't really make any comments about this decision. In any case, I'm happy that we'll be able to see an Ungaro fashion show again, regardless of the designer.
here is a link to his website: http://www.estebancortazar.com/
i remember looking at his collection when it came out but clearly it was forgettable for the most part..
there are some pretty pieces in the ss 06 collection but then some of it is just a mess..
he's still young and definitely needs to grow..
maybe working for ungaro, a label with a history, will help him establish a vision or inspire him to modernize the classic ungaro look..
i don't really know what to think but i'm hoping for his sake that he manages to surprise everyone with a great debut collection..
though i think he will probably get off to a rocky start
that was my first thought. they wanted someone malleable so they can groom him to do what they want. Dundas was too much for them i guess. But if that was the case, why make a big deal about the head designer at all?
and what is the Valli situation?
