    Simple question: What was you're favorite collection this season and why??
    Of course you can name more than one, everything you liked.
    Would be nice to see which collection was top - and which flop!

    For me Versace was one of the best shows.
    I actually always like Versace and this show wasn't an exception.
    Liked the prints, back to the 90s' a bit, but in a good way, the gowns and pastel colours ♥
    They were more, but have to check the photos again to remember ^^

    My ultimate fav was Haider Ackermann. So beautiful and sensual.
    Chanel and Elie Saab I really liked too. :)

    I feel like I need to spend time going over them all again! But McQueen was definitely my favourite.

    Rodarte, Lanvin, Alexander McQueen, Haider Ackermann, John Galliano, Missoni, Luella, Jonathan Saunders, Sophia Kokosalaki, Ann Demeuelemeester, Celine and Rick Owens were all great.

    But the one that really stood out for me: Viktor & Rolf!

    Best (classy, simple and beautiful)

    Michael Kors, Victoria Beckham, Christian Siriano, Burberry, Versace, Versus and Gucci.


    Worst (tacky, weird, creepy and messy)

    Baby Phat, Zac Posen, Marc Jacobs, Louis Vuitton, Alexander McQueen.

    Agree, I thought nothing can be worse than S/S 09, but it was at least that bad. :unsure::cry:

    Agreeing with from: sofia. This was a very unfortunate season. Long reviews from me...

    :heart: Lovely
    Celine - Minimal sportswear is the polar opposite of my usual taste, but somehow Philo did a great job. I thought the resort collection was a little stiff, but I guess it may have just been the photos. This looks fluid, sexy, an casual.
    Ackermann - A little too similar to last season, but last season was good enough to do a few more times before I get bored.
    Vera Wang - Oh-so-gorgeous Vera. Great shoes, great jewelry, great clothes... Other than her just flat-out fantasticness, a woman of any age could wear stuff from this collection. There's something for everyone.
    Sander - I acknowledge that there are some really cheap ideas here, from simply gluing pieces of interfacing on top of outfits or throwing some fringe on others, but something about the show pulled me in, and it's probably going to be what I remember most from this season.

    :flower: Pretty Good
    Balenciaga - I liked the vintage (okay, just a few years ago) vibe I got from this. Not everything was to my taste, but a solid collection, nonetheless.
    McQueen - Not nearly as good as everyone's making it out to be. The production was neat. Not that neat. The clothes, too, were interesting, but it still bothers me that McQueen is still applauded for showing flights of fancy and then selling watered down versions. He's strong enough in both categories, but he should be able to synthesis the two.

    :blush: Pretty, but not Awesome
    Lanvin - Not much to say, from neither Alber nor myself. Beautiful clothes.
    Marchesa - Ethereal, "inspired" clothes. I'd like to pretend their imitations of dresses are simply the highest form of flattery.
    L'Wren Scott - That last look was amazing. Just amazing.

    :huh: We'll See...
    Kane - I like Kane. He's grown on me. This collection was okay, and he's steadily been getting better since he started. I wonder when he'll do more of a range of looks, though.
    Rick Owens - This reminded me of my preteen days playing RPG video games, in a good way. Unfortunately some of the execution here looked a little flimsy, but this time, not in a good way.
    Margiela - The tropical print pieces were great, but more importantly, I have the advantage here of not really caring if this isn't true to the founder's vision. We have no indication of whether he stepped away from the house willingly (I think so) or Rosso forced him out barbarically (Everyone else thinks that). Let's give the design team a few more chances. After all, they could've been doing all the work for years. :innocent:

    :yuk: Disappointing, at Best
    Saint Laurent - I wasn't bothered by the strawberries, but I agree with one of the reviewers (Suzy?) in that Pilati is a romanticist and should stop trying to do such severe looks.
    Prada - Seriously, Miuccia? This looked cheap, and not in an ironic way. Put some thought into it next season, 'cause you aren't dressing any intellectuals in these clothes.
    Givenchy - Tisci is amazing. But he also has a tendency to redo the same concepts over and over. I wasn't wowed by the all-over prints this season, but that won't stop me from expecting way too much from him next season as well.

    Bidwell said it best when he said that he was starving for a fashion moment. I feel the exact same way. I have never seen such a season so empty and it seemed like this month of fashion was so long! The ones that had some amount of life and that I enjoyed were (they are not in any particular order):

    Balenciaga
    What attracted me most about this collection was the clear desire to experiment and I love that. Ghesquière mixed and matched fabrics, materials, and textures that I can only imagine what they looked like in real. The attention to details was so lovely. Is like looking at something under a microscope and zooming in and discovering so much stuff.

    Lanvin
    Lanvin was fantastic just because it was so chic and excessive, yet it was controlled. I love the luxuriousness of fabrics and the rich colours. The jewelry and shoes were great too.

    Alexander McQueen

    While the clothes were nice, what appealed most to me was the show itself. Eventhough I was watching on my computer and the livecast was being a stupid, I could capture this feeling of tension and passion and intimidation. It's all the things I love to feel during a show. Those two giant robotic cameras moving down the tracks while the arms moved and the models walking slowly and the music was the most terrifying and thrilling thing I've seen at a show and I don't know why. So eerie, yet brilliant. I don't even need to mention the shoes as those were works of art. Overall, the show was great.

    Comme des Garçons
    It was rebellious and creative and very unique. It was collage done correctly. The clothing had shape and individual pieces would be definitely wearable. It was just a fantastic collection!

    Chanel
    This was a situation where the clothes and show were great! The pieces were fresh (in a fresh for Chanel sense) and it was youthful. It was indeed a spectacle, but the focus on the clothes was never lost. It was not about doing a grande show to cover up a lacking collection.


    Some that interest me:
    Missoni
    Versace
    Givenchy (it looks better in motion)
    Christopher Kane
    Miu Miu
    Phi


    What I am tired of:

    Christian Dior
    I am sick of it in these days. These little pretty clothes are getting on my nerves because they are not Dior to me. They lack the passion and creativity that was there some years ago. I do not understand! The shows are boring, the accessories are boring, the music is dull, the make-up and hair is always the same.

    John Galliano
    For the same reasons as above. There's more to be inspired than Pigalle...... (but great shoes this season).

    Gucci
    It was not as bad this season as there were some improvements, but it's still not luxurious enough to be called Gucci. I get Tom Ford is gone, but that does not mean the atelier is gone. I wish Frida would dive into the world of luxury that is lacking so much! Maybe it is not possible as she really was only an accessories designer...


    To put it frankly, though, I've forgotten basically what all of the other collections looked like. Very uninspiring and s*** season and what a way to close out the decade. :neutral:

    I should have mentioned these too, but it's gotten to the point where I haven't even clicked/scrolled through the entire collection. Waste of time.
