    I like the first coat...just that first coat. After that first look, the collection went downhill to me.

    Those lamp-like vest, pair of jackets and a corset make me feel uneasy...
    And the dresses feel like a mixture of different concepts, throw together without much direction.

    Is this her tribute to Nicolas Ghesquière? Anyone knows how is she doing financially?

    I feel like she is so lost beyond saving. I think she wasn't a really strong designer to begin with so now that she tries to evolve she just doesn't seem to find a solid, stable direction for her brand.

    I think it's a shame that I haven't liked her work in years. I was impressed with her 3D printing skills at the beginning but wondered whether she was a one-trick pony. Turns out she is.

    Perhaps it would help if she hired a designer who understood shape and she'd be able to focus on her only strength, which is ornamentation and print. Her clothes are simply not strong enough to support all this excess.

    She's a textile designer...let's be honest.
    The clothes are designed to display the fabric, and that's not good.

    Too literal, the Bauhaus design elements, that is. Not very cohesive at all. And I'm seeing more Balenciaga, Prada, Peter Pilotto and a bit of Sportmax than her. I wouldn't blame some women for buying into this. The hemlines are looking great though.
