    The floral dresses reminded me a little Balenciaga Spring 2008 and Fall 2009

    Another one trick pony, he cannot move beyond that 80s party girl aesthetic and most of this is pretty much derivative of Hedi Slimane and Isabal Marant's take on that look but without the sharp tailoring. That parade of pansy print dresses at the end was awful.

    He is very limited. Of course he should use archives but not in such literal way. This job is too serious for him. YSL needs a real designer not copycat... (Alber is still unemployed :))

    His collections are starting to look the same.

    Mmm... This collection is very hedi slimane-esque, everything from the menswear to the women's black looks etc. I'm not in love with the floral parade so much...

    this is all too hedi's saint laurant to be original

    I thought last season was pretty glam and had the right mood that felt like his most independent from Slimane in a certain way.

    This feels regressive in comparison. Looks kind of pedestrian and expected, unfortunately.

    i loved his first couple of collections so so much, i do like the ending here despite the balenciaga refs but it's just too long. too many versions of the same thing. i still love him though :heart:

    Seems too much like a diet version of Hedi.

    Those menswear looks are really unremarkable, which is probably a sign that they should find a dedicated lead to take over the menswear.

    I felt very self-aware as I was watching this show, it all seemed so familiar and nothing really excited me..now i really understand the argument/points that people were saying about Hedi during his tenure(although i still disagree :D). Since Vacerello's take over of the house I have just been so bored for the majority of each collection. I hope a change in direction comes soon. I like the references to the YSL archives however id much prefer something more inspired and less manufactured, as to me it just seems that the collections are following the same approach season after season.

    Those Balenciaga dresses are actually inspired by YSL from the 80s do he has a point...

    Anyway, he's so painfully basic and predictable. His entire approach is simply take what Hedi did and make a bit more slutty and flashy. Zero vision and voice, zero talent.

    The King of the Gimmicky Mini Dress has gone back to copying Hedi and Marant... color me surprised.

    I think this brand is on autopilot and living off the Hedi effect , but problem is when Hedi presents his collections at Celine which again will probably be renditions of 80s disco sluts and punk whores , how will Vacarello fare?

    I feel like there are some flashes of something good here that are buried by ridiculously short lenghts, awkward cuts and huge shoulder pads (given the current state of the season, they've never looked more at home).
