    Apart from the first outfit, I'm not very impressed. I think his S/S HC was better, imo. Everything was so heavy and dark. It was almost like a gothic Valentino. :ninja:

    I really like it. I love the fabrics and textures, i think i'm just drawn to deep, dark collections. A good collection for McDonald i think....i think it's couture but it's also wearable which is a triumph in my eyes.

    No don't like it! Even though there were some good pieces, even though mostly trying hard and no color which was dissapointing from Macdonald and too bland, tell me is Macdonald staying true to himself? :huh:

    It must cost the LVMH group so much money to keep Givenchy alive.
    How sad... a house with such a great classic past. I even prefer the very last collections Hubert de Givenchy made in the early '90's to all this emptiness and lack of charisma. I guess it was another era.
    So maybe a radical style change could save the house.Something super-modern-into-the-future.

    It's not t. Anyway I read that McDonald was at the end of his contract...

    i think i am in agreement with the majority. some decent pieces but personally i find it a bit too pretentious even for a house of that calibre.
    and i think it indeed have alot to do with the styling,no? ultra-glam is a no-no at the house in which the reputation is known for subduity.

    those editors in that suzy menkes article must have starry eyes due to being at one of the largest and most respected houses, because i didn't see anything tremendously special.

    It would have been great if Heidi Slimane would have moved to Givenchy, but know that the Dior contract is extended...

    Wondering who else could be right for Givenchy?

    Theyskens was 'obsessed' with Givenchy since he was up for the post before his 'manager' ruined it for him and then Julian stepped in, so there could be some 'givenchy-ness' still in his design, but no, I dont really think his Rochas was Givenchy material.

    I think Sibylla, Hedi, Ralf Rucci or Veronique Branquinho could be very good choices for Givenchy.

    I think it is really dark and drowned, but also some kind of glamourus
