    It´s like a late 90s ethnic collection by Dries Van Noten, with tiny bits of metal here and there (just because, you know, "Paco Rabanne" name is written on the tags)...

    Very costumey, dare I say kitschy. I don't think I can deal with the belly dancer belts, which drench the entire thing into levels of cheapness.

    Such a disappointment after being so good since the beginning. Mistakes have to be done in order to evolve I guess. He has a huge potential, he should keep going to reinvent Paco's archives.

    Gipsy Japanese techno girl is fun to say but painful to see.

    I like this a lot!
    I think he is coming into his own at Paco Rabanne. It's not 100% perfect but i like that he is trying to move on from the obvious sporty references.
    I think the make-up and all the lights makes it a bit kitschy but the clothes themselves have a balance between folklore and fashion.
    It gives me Gaultier vibes more than Dries.

    Many hits and misses here. He has the right vision but it needs more refinement.

    This has to be my most fav collection of this season. I wonder what was his inspiration for this cos I'm seeing a lot of South East Asian references.

    Not bad, at least it has some of the original spirit and features of Rabanne's designs. That's more than you can say about brands like Mugler these days.

    Always one of the highlights of Paris. Not my personal favourite but at least there's something to see.

    YES JULIEN!! I'm glad he's back into making fun pieces instead of that really weird Peter Saville slogan hoodie era.

    I love this. It's definitely not a thoroughly original proposition given that designers like Gaultier and Dries have done this hybrid of globetrotting styling and modern silhouette before, but in a season where the trend of mashing-up fabrics and identities reigns supreme, he just schooled everyone who did so (e.g. Richard Quinn, that new guy at Marni, Marine Serre) how to do it in the most refined, least gimmicky way. The way he cuts slip dresses or breathes new life into sarongs or any other ethnic, borderline souvenir-looking items (i.e. the belly dancer-like belts) is simply exquisite. Look number 8 is exactly how I'd dress myself if I were a woman: bourgeoisie with several touches of hippie.

    I love that this brand is picking up steam, and after a few space-agey metallic collections, it was cool to see one with a boho vibe that still fits into their brand aesthetic! It makes me so much more interested and I'm glad Julien is showing even more versatility.

    Gary Graham much? What happened to his Balenciaga vibe? Also seems a wrong time to serve the hippies when they all are comfortable in gucci tracksuits now.
