    there's so many candidates for the ugliest dress you've ever seen thread i don't even know where to begin.
    *Some* (very very few) looks are nice, but this is ugly as hell. I just don't understand what happened to them, they used to be among my favorites but it's been such a long time.

    This is like the worst of dolce and gabbana, gucci, valli, and even marchesa all mashed up together.

    Looks like a less extravagant Dolce&Gabanna collection...

    The opening three looks were the perfect introduction to this awfully disjointed show: Louis Vuitton under Nicolas ca. 2015, CdG's Roses and blood ruffles and that awful tiered lace from Gucci. An incomprehensible trip down a rabbit hole of awful construction and all the tastelessness of a middle-aged woman who knits for her endless army of cats.

    Did they aim for a dreamy feel? Cause this is a nightmare.

    Are the sisters going through some crisis of sorts? This looks so disjointed, messy, and just too much. And THAT was really their closing look Hahahaha!

    The evolution of this brand is just tragic.

    Exploding candy-wrappers? A Wedding cake hitting a fan? Not exactly visually pleasing. :/

    OMG, yes... They used to be so good and I really love their collection, I remember how it strike me when I saw their 2008 Fall Collection. And it's a bit sad that they drift away and I really don't know how they make money, since I don't feel like you can buy them for the shops.

    This looks like Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda without the folklore...
    In fact, if it was under the name D&G, the fashion intelligentsia would have roasted this.
    They used to be good like a lot of hyper hyped designers who are celebrated after 2 or 3 shows.
    If only they had an identity, a vocabulary, something to anticipate...

    I've seen a lot of Delpozo-inspired proposition this NYFW, case in point this collection. The thing is, Delpozo always knows how to streamline his whimsicality by letting only one embroidery or embellishment shine and let the other components of his look take a backseat. With designers like the Mulleavy sisters, they do the opposite. This one, in particular, looks like an explosion in a fabric factory.

    Yikes... It just kind of never goes anywhere and the blatant Gucci & Dolce references are baffling.

    It's such a strange collection that is all over the place. The only Rodarte thing about it is the DIY crafty construction.

    Maybe they need to take a break.
