    This is too much on the costume-ish side for me. This is what happens to designers when they run out of ideas. They use the same silhouettes, but they just embellish them more. I'm bored by her.

    I love Sarah, but her pre-collections and seasonal retail collections are starting to just bleed into each other. It's all the same silhouettes, colors, and even fabrics, thinly embellished with a different theme.

    ^Totally agree with you guys! It looks beautiful, but nothing new.

    I feel like they're costumes for a new production of the Salem Witch Trials

    The shoes are hideous.

    ^^me too :p

    I don't see the costume aspect at all! I don't know what you guys are talking about...

    I'm kind of obsessed with this. :heart:

    I think the Elizabethan details are interesting and pared back enough that this collection is actually really wearable and really beautiful.

    this is my fave, i think...
    i'd wear boots with it...
    but the shoes are fun for the lookbook shoot...

    if i were a buyer---i'd buy this...
    that blouse is going to SELL...
    :lol:...
    you can put that with EVERYthing...

    same with the belt...
    it is pure genius and nothing less...
    amazing...

    as for the skirt-
    it's a classic piece that every woman should have in her closet...
    and quite flattering on most due to the button placement...

    SOLD!!!...
    :judge:

    brilliant stuff...

    The white blouse in the third row, second shot, of the first set is so gorgeous!!! And I actually love the mid-calf pencil skirts. They look awesome here, as do the skinny trousers. And those sleeves! What's so bad about this?

    This is beautiful! I know it's a similar in some ways to her previous collections, but I think it's so good.

    I see the costume-y side of it, not the whole collection, but a large chunk of it. Those Elizabethan collars for example, way too literal. And that last dress really drives the point home.

    I think this is quite nice, I did not find it costumey at all. Nods to the the Tudor era, but done in a very modern way. It is not easy for anyone to be in her shoes, so kudos to her!

    Yeah, this is very nice.

    Gloriously feminine silhouettes with the no-nonsense, strict classic tailoring is what Sarah excels at. I'd much prefer the McQueen label be this mature, subtle refinery than the gaudy bedazzled pile of beads and feathers that they're hoping to pass as profound and innovative season after season since McQueen's passing.
