    Jeremy Scott- someone should send him to mars
    Andrew Mackenzine- Goodwell won't even take those
    Kimora Lee Simmon- I don't think her modeling experiences actually helps her design, plus, J.Lo is catching up on her

    i remember seeing an interview piece on him that combined backstage footage. he was prepping the models for the runway, and he gathered them all together and said "you're a rich woman on a boat in the south of france". that sums up pretty much all of his summer collections so far. and his michael michael kors line should have never been made.

    i don't like anything galliano is doing clothing wise. the imagery is nice and all, but really, i don't like the clothing.

    agreed with Scott on BH, with Rhizm on Dirk (but I am still not throwing out my precious early days footwear and those amazing heavy knits :D ), and with PoC on Hedi.

    Xavier Delcour is another one that comes to mind.

    Oh yeah, that´s been pretty much my opinion =)... But even now, he´s lightyears better than others, probably an indicator that there are very few great menswear designers out there :/

    Faust,shocking to see me post that,no? :lol: No,really I've been getting fed up. Looking back at all his wonderous collections it had me thinking what the hell he's doing now? He still had a wonderful sense of humour...he had the kitsch factor....and still was capable creating marvelous things.

    OH! Another one,I find troubling is Martin Margiela's latest,less-than-esoteric approach with Diesel. I feel it's yet another cop-out from an indie really....as much of a master I've gleaned him to be,I don't feel the same enthusiasm as I used to.

    His Michael Michael Kors line I love! Seriously, it's better than his runway clothes. The quality, cuts and everything are fabulous. Of course there are a few...Iffy moments (a Glam-Hawaiian print camp shirt) but I love a majority of it all.

    Jeremy Scott is John Galliano without the technique or creativity, just the flash. Andrew Mackenzie makes Donatella look talented. Kimora makes Andrew Mackenzie look talented.

    I got a pair of those jeans at Costco, they were actually pretty stylish, grey, black or khaki denim. I turned my grey ones into a pair of cutoffs. Calvin Klein is reinventing themselves, they're now rather than then. Look at the new ads and the new line of lingerie, both are excellently executed. The new cK line of clothes are incredible, the cut and quality are back. The runway collections are a tad bland but the accessories (where the dollars come from) are excellent.


    I also loathe Dsquared, a gay porn come to life every season.

    Do you really mean cK Jeans? how could THAT be incredible? Are we talking about the distressed denim, "biker/racer" jackets, bold labelling et al? Eugh.. Not a trace of minimal, or simple lovely basics... No offence here -- maybe the lookbook we get in Spain is different!

    By the way, they just closed the last Calvin shop left in the country... :( And saw the ugly new one in Milan and it's hardly Pawson's work isn't it?

    Cheers :smile:

    - OSCAR DE LA RENTA (#1 copyist)
    - JOHN GALLIANO for DIOR (eeeww)
    - MICHAEL KORS (ughhhhh for godsake)
    - BETSEY JOHNSON (my god... hello?!)
    - VALENTINO (its always the same everyseason!)

    and i think all of them SHOULD STOP EVERYTHING THEY'RE ALL DOING RIGHT NOW!

    Even with the grain of good design left in it, the way it's going with jeans, scarfs, hoodies and all that crap; Dior customers are becoming victims of Hedi's criminal prices.

    Isn't it ironic that these days people are snapping up multihundred dollar "basics" as opposed to investing in a unique, quality garment? I'm still puzzled about this.

    but didn't this happen with helmut lang, too? He earned much of his fame because of his superb basics... i know that the search for "the perfect jean" is a cliché, but it sometimes does happen...

    i'm puzzled too, though -- i am a relentless consumer of both under and overprized basics. If only we had benetton like in the old days for the perfectly cut wool jumper to cover the gap between h&m and marc by marc jacobs or whoever...

    And yes: how much is too much for a hoodie?? i've kinda lost my balance point
