    Did anyone stand back and wonder if this was frumpy at any point? Stick models look pudgy in this, not a good omen for regular mortals.

    ^ Good point.

    It seems like there's a lot that's derivative here, but at the same time there are a handful of looks/pieces I like...classics with a twist. I really like the first look in #5 with the red skirt as well as the dress underneath it.

    Very classic. But kind of boring at the same time.

    I love that coat too - i'd totally wear it
    It looks like it's made out of the same material Oscar de la Renta made a coat with in his show last week :smile:

    I quite like this collection; it's simple and clean looking, but unfortunately there's nothing that screams LOOK AND REMEMBER - THIS IS NICOLE FARHI and I do so love those pieces :I

    Afterthought:
    OH - but someone buy me those fringed gloves! They are way cool.

    Personally I don't mind this at all...

    I totally understand what you are trying to say, as a ciritique on the collection and the designer's work in general....

    The truth is, however, that when I'm buying something, I don't look for a piece which would be immediately recognised....

    as long as it is beautiful, well made and suits my style, I don't mind at all....

    Maybe I won't go looking for a designer's work (exactly because of what you said), but if I came upon it, I wouldn't think of that before buying....

    No no no! I don't mean that! I don't mean like a Fendi Handbag "oh look there's a Fendi handbag" because it has the F logo splattered across it (a trend I think is way tasteless) I mean, there's nothing memorable about the collection; it is beautiful, very beautiful (like I said earlier in my post) but there's just nothing outstanding - all i'm saying!

    P.S. Nice elipsises :smile:
