    Ugh. I want my Calvin back. :ermm: This collection headed up by new design director, Francisco Costa, really disappointed me. Imo, it looked like recycled Miu Miu w/barely a touch of minimalism. I mean, one black piece?? I know many people find Calvin himself to be pretty boring, but I find beauty in simplicity. <shrugs>

    Are you kidding, Astrid? Calvin may not suit my style, but I love his work. :heart:

    His last S/S collection was mindblowing. The washed colors and... I mean it was brilliant. It was one of his best collections seen, IMO.

    This collection, on the other hand, is a 50/50 collection. Yes it was so Miu Miu and too safe, but this is his first collection and there are enormous pressure on him. So I'd give him one more chance.

    Still, I also want Calvin back. No one can do his work like he can. :cry:

    Thanks, Astrid! :flower:

    i agree.... simplicity is what attracts me always, to clothing. to me less is always more and all these brown tones and fabrics dont do it for me. I like second dress in the last row....

    I thought the shaping and architecture of the outfits was very Calvin (am i wrong? very well could be) however I wasn't HUGE on the washed brown tones. I seem to be the only one enjoying the short shorts with the white button downs tucked in to them. I haven't payed attention to Miu Miu so no comment on that but i didn't think it was a bad collection by any means.

    :sick: :sick: :sick: :sick:

    why didn't he just dress little boys in potato sacks?

    this is just awful! the clothes aren't even flattering on these models... how would they look good on a normal person.

    ack.

    disappointing CK show: cause.....


    neutrals were CK's old trademark but new team/gal does NOTHING with them, lacks the twist or snap that Cal gave his brill tones/cuts

    some of the fabrics are VERY Prada: the pants & coats with neutrals & like a plaid overlay: also some of cuts / lengths are very prada but theres NOTHING cerebral or smart or new here like prada does EVERY SEASON:: EVERY PIECE!!!

    very drab show, clothes, vibe... nothing new & old CK neutrals & prada ideas were lamed out.

    bad bad

    Even where there is no sleeve there is always a sleeve implied...

    somewhat like the last two skirts, and the gossamer dress.
    overall, staid and waspy as usual. never really liked CK.
