    I wonder how long it took for his mommy and daddy to design this collection. he needs to pay his dues, I don't like this at all. It looks like a mash up of Margiela, Balenciaga, and Chalayan...

    The evening wear is gorgeous, I've been building expectations for this guy even though he's 20 ish, it's hard not to with the impact he made last season. But the rest of the collection is not that appealing to me, even though it is all very promising. I don't know what to make of shoes, they have their own strange appeal...

    i'm so happy for him, he's really talented, he deserves to be where he is. he's much better than his parents imo...

    Yes I see the Balenciaga and Margiela comparisons. Didn't Margiela once do some shoes with seperated toes like that. And perhaps a shade of Pugh too. None of which can be a bad thing.

    I do feel like I slightly preferred last season as that felt like nothing on earth.

    But hey look at what happened with poor Icarus Altuzarra who proved not to be the hot thing we thought he might be. Whichever nuance we present in comparison this/last, Pedro IS looking like the hot new talent du jour.

    And yes those demi-sleeves look held in place merely by the position of the wearer's arms. Not pieces to stack a supermarket shelf in :blush:

    Thusly the garment controls the wearer in quite a fetishistic, Margiela type of way. A new take on 'worn off the body'' perhaps as if you're not careful they soon will be.

    So I think I see conceptualism, sexy and humour in Pedro. A heady mix.

    Watch out though we'll have the wearability crowd in here in a minute with their empty subjectivist bleating.

    ^ I thought I could see some sheer fabric seams that were holding the arms on?

    This is literally incredible. I am absolutely blown away.
    Pedro Lourenco is definately the best new talent I have seen. I am so impressed.

    ^ Indeedy you're right. So you could stack a supermarket shelf in them after all.

    In that the straps are transparent though the garments are designed to look as if they relate to the body in the way I'm suggesting. Maybe. And in some of the looks the wearer is forced to hold that arm position in order to preserve modesty downstairs also. It seems.

    This guy is meant to be one of the highlights of Paris in a few years. What an exquisite and precise tailoring - not to mention the best play of sheer I've seen in seasons!

    Bravo! :clap:

    The day he even manages to sell these clothes will be the day he goes commercial....maybe he should move his shows to London....

    I can see this as an updated Mugler collection. Looks well cut and precise.

    Way to go Pedro! I love his collection. It's growing on me very fast. The clothes look well-cut and they are edited. Now Paris can offer me one more thing.

    Every single look has some kind of optical illusion. Some of them I can handle and find quite nice, others mess with my head and literally give me a headache.

    I know it's vulgar, but the folds on the shoes look like camel toes.
