    I don't know why but for some reason I'm getting Empress from The NeverEnding Story vibes.

    The clothes are...quite boring. He should start therapy to fix that weird fetish he has for huge dresses, he was a good designer before, not sure what's the point of these tents. I don't want to imagine what the fabric budget was...

    The video was cute though, with the projections and all... But Margiela's was cooler.

    FKA Twigs yet again for the soundtrack of the live show was so overkill. I would have gone for a Nino Rota medley being that he passed away recently and it was staged in Cinecitta.

    Nick Knight is one pandemic fashion week away from getting a brand new mansion for his family.

    Here’s what I think of the collection-
    Yes, I am a Valentino fanboy, I love the recent Leblanc series and this collection to me is a continuation of that and I’ll take everything from it.

    And the livestream was simple breathtaking it’s a pity that Youtube only has resolution up to 360p which is a waste ‘cuz nobody can see the details on their teeny weeny iPhone screen...

    BUT... when you take a second look you’ll get some déjà vu, which is not a good thing.

    Honestly, when I saw the dress in the first screenshot, the first thing that came to my mind was... Pierpaolo basically combined the details one million and one white dresses which Sarah Burton has done for Alexander McQueen into one gown...

    And that all-around-the-face headgear? Basically Freja’s Chanel Haute Couture Spring 2009 bride look please...

    Overall... this is truly a breathtaking collection (with that Nick Knight factor), but nothing truly groundbreaking...

    I never thought that Maria Grazia Chiuri would be able to deliver a more compelling collection than her ex partner but here we are...

    Another Valentino collection. I guess it’s good. I mean it’s good enough for people on IG to say how Amazing it is and to declare PP as a genius on Youtube....But I’m not impressed, considering that I had no expectations at all.
    MGC did miniatures, PP does maximalism.
    The video was cool...

    I guess I’ll go back to see Chanel HC SS2009. It was white too but at least it had a sense of emergency. It reflected the time.

    Now that I think about that, who is this collection for?

    He needs to stop designing for the IG and youtube crowd.

    All of these videos and such for haute couture show why fashion shows are so important. I can't see the clothes in that video just like in the one Galliano commissioned for Margiela. Just looking the images, I am left very cold and without any emotion. It could be that the dresses are in fact just very boring (which they are boring), but the images are definitely uninspiring and not aspirational at all.

    When they are start having fashion shows again, I am expecting everyone to be on their A+++ game !!!

    Unfortunately PIerpaolo didn't excel in simplicity.

    I don't think it will be getting any better, the opposite I think. This current era of mediocrity and generality is numbing. Fashion is slowly dying. Most likely it's going to hit rock bottom eventuelly and has to reinvent itself completely to attract interest again.

    Very...lengthy.

    That's all I have in my head for this collection.

    I think you're talking about Ennio Morricone not Nino Rotta. :smile:

    Basic HC dresses with a Viktor & Rolf presentation?

    The dresses are very long...but Pier-Paolo creativity is akin to a micro-skirt...or maybe just a wide belt...

    I mean, this collection is nothing more than previous designs in White and exaggerated versions. From the jelly fish hats to the Couture China collection, it’s a mini retrospective.

    Are they going to sell these as couture tents?

    Unfortunately the presentation was very long and boring. Had to forward through yet I was watching in high resolution.

    This is so silly and d*mb looking.

    PPP has lost the plot. The adoration he received from the press and the glitterati went to his head, and quickly. This looks like bad fashion student work - cluelessly exaggerating pedestrian silhouettes to obscene proportions for “shock value.”

    I can’t believe this is the same designer who executed that perfect and restrained debut solo couture show back in Spring ‘17.
