    Beside looks 17 & 18 (which the same, but different colors) I cannot defend this. It's too e-commerce season. This feel like a capsule collection more a seasonal one, and should just go straight to the website. Sarah is obviously a very romantic designer so she cannot have that darkness obsession like Lee (nobody can). Sarah should expand her vision as a romantic English designer with a touch of whimsical escapism. Like those rose drape dresses a few seasons ago. There a market for it since Burberry suddenly cut off the supply :rofl:. Oh well there always next season.

    Sorry Sarah cannot defend you from jeanclaude this season :brows:.

    everything looks so lifeless and heavy, almost like a cut-out paper version of a garment. I'm seriously baffled as to who wants to look like this

    It's so weird that the latest resort was more complex than this collection. She's been literally making everything more and more watered down and boring, she's been stuck with the same silhouettes and the same pieces from the archives. However, this collection is not as alarming as the parallel menswear one. Sarah is usually very strong when it comes to menswear, but this time it looks as if it had been taken straight from duty-free.

    LOL! :lol: Her worst enemy is not me, is just herself!

    I am shocked to see again another pile of uninteresting clothes, when she just presented resort a couple of weeks ago!

    This is as much sustainable as related to McQueen´s style...

    Terribly insipid, there's only so much diluting you can do before you end up saying nothing at all.

    I hope the leg-of-mutton sleeve is now nearing its dishonorable end...I'm sick of them!

    This brand is such a joke now I can't even.

    She is typical copy-paste designer; trench? dress? oh let's just f*cking sew them together and sell for new season with this Welsh ephemeral bullsh*t how Lee used to dream while sitting on the rock. Tailoring is properly done (at least for menswear) but there is no vision, no creative process what-so-ever. Nothing, zero, null.

    It does not excite me much but at least it is not ugly.

    Each season is getting more and more Dior. The name of the brand attached to this clothes don’t even matter anymore...

    I actually think she's a worse designer than Maria Grazia, tbh.

    What happened to her? Her first few years were pretty great tbh, she carried on McQueen's vision but put her own spin on it. Now we're here...it's not that these clothes are awful but what are they saying? They don't emotional impact you like Mcqueen's collections always did. These just kind of exist and look pretty but that's about it...it's super sad.

    I don't think this is really that bad. It's just very predictable. Which is fine for a thrift store brand like Proenza Schouler or some other rubbish New York designer, but not for a fashion house with such a mammoth artistic legacy.

    I think the issue with Burton is less about her going 'backwards' and more about her just being STUCK....which in itself is going backwards I suppose.

    another ode to Monsieur Dior...
    I like how minimal it is. the cut, the volume, the layers of lace, even the prints! it’s all superb.
    I would’ve scrap the leather and the denim.
    and it does feel a little... too simple. but simple can be effective.
    and it looks like Sarah’s entering a different mood...

    it’s not original at all but it all looks so clean and well executed that I found myself admiring it.

    Sarah will never be Lee. never. he was one of a kind.
    but I do think she has talent.
