    Sometimes the oddest things get hyped by fashion mags. Is there someone/something particular you don't care for?

    I hate this outfit but it's in every (British) magazine :sick:

    i think Bear will yell at me for overloading the servers if I list everything hyped up that I despise :lol:

    Some of my "favorites" (I will use names instead of labels, because something like Chanel used to be cool, but now they make tennis balls for $100)

    Group 1:

    Marc Jacobs,Karl Lagerfeld,Tom Ford,Galliano, Ghegeresque (butchering his name, Balenciaga), Stella McCartney

    Group 2:
    Hilfiger, Lauren, Varvatos,Donna Karan

    Group 3:
    Von Dutch,Uggs,Juicy

    anyway, the list goes on and on and on...

    I hated Tommy Hilfiger in high school. I refused to wear any of his clothes because they were cheap and simple with a logo that made the price skyrocket.

    My overhyped list would be the following:

    1. Tom Ford
    2. Stella McCartney
    3. Proenza Schouler
    4. John Galliano
    5. Nicholas Ghesquiere

    I am so tired of constantly reading about them in every fashion magazine. They make it seem as if no others designers have any talent or merit. :angry:

    I agree with Lena about the bags and shoes.

    To be honest I like the Chloe outfit in the first photo. I hate low-rise (let me get a brazilian :yuk: ) pants/trousers and was happy to see those jeans! :flower:

    I think Chalayan is just a bit pretentious not really hyped--I think the attention he's recieved has been genuine,non?

    Okay,

    1. Any style related to and of JLO/Britney/Gwyneth/Madonna/Xtina/Nicole Kidman/Chloe Sevigny etc.

    2. Designers:Ghesquire,Imitation of Christ,McCartney,PSchouler,Pose®n,Sean Jean,Narciso Rodriguez,Kors,Galliano et al

    3. Overrated hipster labels as mentioned by the aforementioned ;)

    i am surprised no one has mentioned chanel...you cannot open a magazine without seeing the quilted bag, the tweedy coat, pictures from the runway, or that TRENCH over and over and over :shock:

    Dior, Dsquared(yes yes, they're fresh and fun, but there's just too many segments on TV about them!!!), Dolce & Gabbana, Galliano and Marc Jacobs(for awhile there, I could not open up any celebrity magazine without mentions of Marc Jacobs and his wearable clothes --- in an interview I was surprised to hear that even he got a little fed up with being too mainstream and adopted by these celebs... and thus we got the mod collection of last year.)
