    This is a very strange collection for them. Why would they design a collection so derivative of other designers work at this stage in the development of their label? I see a lot of Chanel (obviously because of the tweed), a touch of Fendi, a little Alberta Ferretti; and these elements overwhelm their own signatures.

    The last two seasons were great for them because they worked on developing a clear and recognizable aesthetic for their label. With this collection though, its a little bit of a step back in terms of evolution. Hopefully next season will be better.

    Overall, this is a nice and pleasant collection, but definitely not their best.

    I'm pretty sure I've seen this collection somewhere along the way throughout the season. Overall, it's just a nice simple collection with nice great clothes. ugh I just remembered how fabulous those metallic gold dresses from last season were..now THAT was interesting.

    helmut, I agree with every word you said. It's a nice enough collection, but it seems like a step back. It's a bit all over the place, but there are some really pretty pieces. All in all, not as good as last season which I thought was really great and fresh.

    Wow this is a BIG dissapointment for me! After such an amazing S/S 2010 collection I can't believe this is what he offered for the new season!

    This collection doesn't speak Aquilano e Rimondi at all to me except for some of the looks in the end, really dissapointed and just a bit upset. :(

    This looks so outdated and old fashioned!
    Their SS10 collection was the one who had the most powerful and interesting aestethic,they were trying to let people know about this brand in a new unique way,designing something cool for a young clientele...but this looks like Chanel,which is clearly NOT a young brand :lol:
    I would save the coat on Jac though,it's brilliant

    These two keep flip flopping with their look, and this collection certainly does not help to give their identity any depth or structure. They go architectural, then they go soft, and now they are just plain generic. I was hoping for much more than this.

    A shame that their Ferre collections are so interesting and yet their own line is rather dull.
