    Such a beautiful collection. It's a perfect example of looking to the past but moving forward.

    This is by far the best I've seen by Mabille. A lot of the gowns have a lot of unnecessary fabric, and the overall construction could do more work. But seeing the horrors he's done for past collections, this is very nice. I feel like he finally blossomed.

    Absolutely. Some of these looks are very reminiscent of vintage Valentino (from the 60s).

    the names i thought of (Valentino and Chanel in their good days) have been posted - i agree. and i like it. but i think the colous palette is a bit dull, and it has the risk to get a bit cheap/trashy eastern european 90s look with the flowers and stuff (not to offend anyone, but i do feel reminded of some of the "cliché"-looking stuff from back then)

    Very pretty overall, though I'm not as impressed as with the Christophe Josse collection..

    while it's clear he's talented, there's something a bit to antiquated about this collection. it's elegant to a fault, but it doesn't feel at home in a modern world.

    Favorite collection of Paris Haute Couture S/S '11 so far. The shoes and the blanket-like impression of some of the dresses I don't like so much though. By the way, Armani, Gucci and Channel haven't turned out so well...
