    Well, I have to admit, Narciso left me cold.
    I am not one to be left cold by minimalism, but he achieved it with his spring collection.
    A strong nineties feel ran throughout with spaghetti-strap dresses and ultra-simple seperates in black, white and grey, the only pattern appearing being that of blank foliage on tops and dresses.
    The best pieces were the gowns, no doubt: the opening grey dress and the similar white version that were completely unembellished with anything were stunning in their simplicity, leaving the cut and the clean fabric to do the talking.
    Other beautiful dresses were the panelled white number Hanne Gabbe Odiele modelled and the finale ivory parachute gown.
    The only other remarkable piece was a dark tailored jacket whose only detail squarely traced the bust.
    By the looks on the faces of members of the audience, they had the same thought as I did: "How unextraordinary."

    Very underwhelming, very 90s, and very un-Narciso. Pretty on trend with what's going on in NYC this season though.

    While the collection felt a bit uneven, I love it for the fact that it harks back to some of my favorite Narciso collections. Some of those dresses, like the plain white satin t shirt dress on Jamie Bochert, or the gray tricolor number on Jaqueline, were absolutely stunning and so sexy.

    Anything designed by Narciso is completely amazing in feel, construction and fabrication!:flower:

    So simple and lifeless. Is someone getting lazy?

    couldn't agree more. it reminded me of a collection in 1997 (i think) when kate moss was still modelling. his clothes were great then as they are now. Love him!!

    ^ Funny you mention Kate, because Style.com picked up on that as well. The gray dress that opened the show certainly brought to mind the Narciso sheath she wore to Cannes when she was with Johnny Depp.

    He's definitely harkening back to 90s minimalism. I don't feel as though it's updated in any way though.....

    Ugh there is nothing special to this. I love white and black dresses but this did not catch my attention on any level. I really do not know what is going with many designers this season. I agree that it is very 90's. I think out of the entire collection, I maybe liked four designs.
