    ^He must be dreaming if he thinks anyone would pay that much for his designs.

    Wow!
    It’s so badly executed!
    I would rather spend that amount of money on Thom Browne or Chanel Metiers d’Arts.
    Insane!

    Is that dress Virgil's way of saying he's pissing all over the competition?

    How, oh, how, did we ever make it this far without him? Fashion genius!

    And to think, Olivier Theyskens was dropped from Rochas and Nina Ricci for creating garments ten times prettier than these for 1/3-1/2 the price of these atrocities

    It's really a shame they ruined what could have been a great dress. I really like the puzzle embellishment, it looks like it took a lot of work. They just had to add all that hideous fabric on top. The technique and fabric they used on the skirt looks like the beginning of a cheap weeding dress. Balmain has so many resources that are not being fully utilized. It's like they say, money can't buy taste. :wink:

    Gianni was the king in this kind of Chaotic plissés. Obviously, Olivier is not!

    Olivier doesn't really have a refined touch in the way he makes his clothes.

    I hope that beading on the Poppy bomber is done by Lesage because there is no design that went into the making of that.

    I know beauty is subjective but I'm having a hard time imagining who would even covet that piece. It's not hype worthy, it's not particularly a standout piece from the collection. I don't get it

    I want to say, even if I love him, that Jacquemus right now is kinda overpriced. I think that the quality and the execution is his last collection is not that great. I get that it’s contemporary but compared for example to Lutz for example...I’m not impressed.
    All the experimentations on the tailoring can looks a bit silly when for example, you have a shoulder that doesn’t sit properly or things like that.

    Moving from his geometric shapes is a challenge when it comes to construction.

    Yes, it’s not Chanel or Tom Ford but with those prices, he could have been at least close to Sandro or Maje.

    Oh I like that! The entire shirt is beaded. It's expensive, but the price seems right for that kind of work.

    I always wonder, does employing some workers in India, give them adequate training, paying them a fair wage, helps reduce the price? I have seen some rather exquisite beading done for Indian traditional clothings before.
    or Italians or French does it better necessarily?

    Everything on the Celine website right now. I know it’s Hedi Slimane, but come on, 500 dollars for a plain t-shirt?
