gorgeous, for sure...
It's sorta gothic Valentino (the old Valentino). I think I like (some) of it.
This is very Scognamiglio, which alone is a vast improvement of last season, when the accusations were that he was inspired by Givenchy.. which I couldn't deny looked quite likely.
Scognamiglio is back on form I'd say! His strange shapes and perverse sexiness have come straight back; the two things that made me a fan of his in the first place.
Of course, there are some quite standard looking clothes here also, and several pieces that look like they've been hotlinked (but subdued) from his A/W 08 and other shows.
Maybe, like Giambattista Valli, he has chosen his trademarks, which include the matching top and trouser two-piece etc.
I agree with the implication in the review that he isn't evolving and he isn't trying to break out of the quiet little place in the corner of Milan fashion week, but what I love is that though he may be bowing to a few trends for a few more sales, he is keeping true to himself, and maybe being in that corner allows him to do so.
The "aquatic" shapes and the Alaia-inspired daring cut-out dresses are my favourite parts of the show, the former carried out immaculately.
Francesco Scognamiglio may not be pushing fashion boundaries but he always pushes my views of beauty to further levels.
Disappointed with this . It looks just a little cheap and does not have imagination like his previous collections .
I don't know,it looks very Scognamiglio,but it seems like he played safe this time
The coat and the belts are to die for,but I still prefer the star inspired SS10 collection
the fashion world always needs its fetishist and scognamiglio has played that role for quite some time as that review has noted: personally, i'd love for someone with this point of view -- much like tisci with his catholic gothicism or jacobs with his grungy eclecticism -- give us something that both appeals to those on the fringes and those in the main.
I just started paying attention to this designer never did before that huge fish belt is amazing! i thought you guys might want to see this video of the collection its how i became a fan. although I dont really like his spring summer collection it lacks mystery for me.
