    Gross. I hate the final sentence.

    Imagine being stuck behind him at the airport, with your children by your side, and you have to wait for this lame-brain to take off all his stupid jewelry, just to get past the metal-detectors.

    Not cool at all.

    Apparently your wish went the other way ...

    Did you guys see the critic's reviews of the latest?

    Im enamoured with his aesthetic! I hated this first, made-in10-days collection but after that? SWOON!

    Speaking of Frida, do we know what she is up to these days?

    I wasn't a fan of Michele's Gucci at first, but I've warmed up to it SLIGHTLY. It will be interesting to see what direction he goes in once everyone's obsession with this sort of bohemian/magpie style of dressing eventually wanes though.

    I'd expect that Frida is probably enjoying motherhood and married life, but I hope she's able to make a comeback somewhere.

    I wonder if he's exaggerating about the rings ... He wears about 10 but it should only take a minute to get them off. If they're sized properly. I find his jewelry style inspiring.

    I imagine the same thing. I could not find anything either.

    It would be a shame if she didn't come back somewhere...

    I really like his Gucci. It's more sophisticated than it has ever been in the last 10 years.
    Their accessories has always been very good but the clothes are very good. For the first time in 6 years, i've bought Gucci's clothes and i'm happy.

    While Frida clothes were luxurious (good fabrics, good details), they lacked sophistication in terms of execution. Her last FW collection was a disaster in terms of fit. Everything was so stiff!

    I also want to see Frida doing her thing. I really don't know if her work at Gucci was a representation of her aesthetic.

    I think her strength may be in accessories design. She never seemed to excel at designing for the body.

    The first thing that came to my mind was premature. Don't take me the wrong way, I know he has been working at Gucci for years and thus always being part of the creative process, but give the man some time at the helm of a brand before crowning him International Designer of the Year.

    It doesn't matter whether if You like it or not or how derivative It is, I think both F/W15 mens and womenswear collections were the Fashion moment of the year and honestly, I can't think about anything else. Now, if it's just hype or real talent; that's a matter of subjective opinion.
