The zip, and where it's placed and everything on that back of that dress is just beautiful. I love it.
I always love her choices of fabric and I actually like the feathers too. For me, this is interesting and beautiful. And even with the fabric and the feather and the zippers I don't feel like there's too much going on.
A lot of the colours aren't very S/S but that seems to be a theme in a lot of collections this season, and she doesn't do day looks so much, so I think it works.
I guess we're doing shoulders again though...?
That was exactly my thought. She's one of many from London who's kept the emphasis on the shoulders.
I think she can just make beautiful dresses. The back of that dress with the zipper running down it, off to one side is just exactly the kind of interesting thing I love to see when a model turns round and you see the back.
Somehow this reminds me of givenchy..... maybe its the feathers and the hair.
i was expecting this to be better...
I don't think it's her at her best, but I still think there's some great pieces in there. When the entire collection goes up on Vogue.com we'll see more great pieces hopefully.
It's a bit too excessive and uncontrolled, the way she works with the feathers and big shouldered jackets... It's the same issue I'm having with her most of the time, I would love seeing her with a lighter hand.
I absolutely love the use of the feathers and some of her little details, but to me the collection in general, for the most part, screams fall.
it's a bit disappointing really. it's missing something? maybe the volume isn't as dynamic as it typically is. and the wide-shoulders are a bit derivative.
Quite confusing (not really summer colors...) but I love every piece so far. I can't wait to see the full collection.
I agree Scott. I was kind of expecting more. She's just expanding (literally) on ideas already out there. The big shoulders look like a Margiela/Balmain/Givenchy knockoff (okay Margiela was goat hair or whatever, but same idea), the use of satin fabrics, the 80's dress shapes. There are a couple of nice things in there (as others have pointed out - the zipper) but really, this type of thing is already out there.
It looks "cool", but that's because it sums up all the Parisian-Chic-houses/brands
The full collection's now been put on Vogue.
Her design is just too exaggerated, be it a motif or form. We can all see the details
O U T T O H E R E
She needs to be a bit more refined if she wants to do this sort of product. The chic clientale she imagines isn't going to want such ridiculous proportions!
More care should be taken on the execution of the subtler details as they also are more than evident if you know what I mean...
Thanks, that is exactly what I meant to say - you put it in much clearer words than I did, though!
