    no, i think the post reffers to his collections for Burberry being weird :P

    plus Burberry is no Celine...
    i certainly find him bland :ninja:

    Well now it's official:

    Vogue article

    And I don't find his work bland; I find it restrained and tasteful. :ninja:

    Peter Som for Celine..probably a better match...I wonder how Peter Som for Celine will deviate from Peter Som's own line...

    Thank god.

    I hated Menichetti, it was just horrible. That first collection was soo bad, I cant believe LVMH approved him.

    on the runway, it was strange. in the boutique, it was gorgeous.

    reality always cancels out fantasy, imo. because at the end of the day, clothes are made to be worn and enjoyed.

    A person in the audience or seeing it on Style.com wouldn't get that impression. I get the impression that the clothes are technicolor nightmares. I give credit where it's due, I did like his variation on the Boogie bag, although the bag was already great to begin with.

    BTW I dont think Ive ever seen an advert for Celine.

    I agree about the lesser known designer being preferable, although not proenza.

    they are in vogue occassionally but they are never gaudy or obvious.

    no mention to Som at wwd of today.. seems that they also wanted Raf at Celine.. now ..could that be a strange choice for celine or not? seems that they are decided to give the house of celine a real strong tilt

    The first collection was horrible, but the second was a major improvement. You cannot discount the designer without seeing these:

    Some of the pieces are Prada-esque, but the lines are softer. Wearable luxury. This is a identity that is suitable for Celine. Give him sometime and he might be good enough to fill Kors' shoes. I think Kors has done some amazing work, but his looks could be too overstyled at times. Menichetti in comparison seems fresh. I am sad to see him go.

    As for his replacement, I can think of a couple designers who were at one point all rumored to head Givenchy: Sophia Kokosalaki (but her own line is just taking off, having moved to Paris two seasons ago), Derek Lam (he is poised to become the Next Big Thing at NY after Proenza Schouler), and Patrick Robinson (but he's just signed with Paco Rabanne).

    Peter Som? You are kidding. He is not as good as Derek Lam or Jeffery Chow or even Behnaz Sarapfour. Also say no to Giles Deacons.

    seems that Peter Som is now out of question..

    know nothing about Vanessa Seward.. but please no Facchinetti or :shock:
    Tara Subkoff ..could Veronique Branquinho fit in? she seems like their best choice out of this list

    I think that CELINE is rapidly becoming a ' Cinderella ' house for LVMH , a la Christian Lacroix .

    It's a sophisticated house with far more going for it than all the super naffness of , it SO pains me to say , Christian Dior , under the drug fuelled machinations of John Galliano .

    I actually think that Giles Deacon WOULD be good for the house , he's a sophisticated designer with years of solid graft to hone his style . Alexandra Fachinetti , also , has a lot going for her , but perhaps she's wary of these huge talent-consuming conglomerates , after her experience with GUCCI .
    Whether Arnault et al would be willing to take a chance on GILES is anybody's guess , but with GIVENCHY starting over with a new and relatively untried designer , God knows what the balance sheets for these secondary houses will be like at the end of the financial year .
    Perhaps now is the time to start recycling Tom Ford , God love us !!!!!! :innocent:
