    Vionnet alive

    As would say Lagerfeld, when the same was said about Chanel: "At least, it means, she is alive..."

    i'll take kokosalaki's vision of vionnet over any of them to be honest. at least she managed to show something new while maintaining the spirit. those two dresses of her's,imo,are quintessentially the style of vionnet. modern,elegant with a twist...and refined. those audibet dresses look like trashy high-school prom dresses....and this new stuff i find rather lazy.

    I find this collection "off" but strangely fascinating, the technique here is interesting and second little black dress is not too shabby. It can be edited certainly. I would like to see more before making up my mind, but as it's a first effort and an inexperienced designer, I'm keeping an open mind.

    i think this collection has got potential. the next major collection however, should have more direction and oopmh!!! still, the black dress looks great!!! and yeah,. some of it is messy and overworked.

    I honestly just want these big corporate entities funding the remake of brands, to just give the money to the designer used to design for the old brand and help create their own iconic label. Paglialunga is obviously talented, why not give him his chance to create something new that doesn't involve reworking the DNA of an old house. Does anyone else wonder what Nicholas Ghesquiere's work would look like without the towering silhouette of Cristobal Balenciaga in the background?

    some artists flourish more when toiling for another house. ghesquiere stands as one of those figures as does elbaz. some designers do well doing both; withness marc jacobs, michael kors, derek lam, lagerfeld, gaultier, galliano, et al. then, there exist those who can just design for themselves.

    personally, i feel that if one has a passion for a thing, it's best to go after that passion. it's clear that designers like ghesquiere does not have a passion for his own work, but in the continuing of things past.

    unfortunately, in the business of fashion, one has to have a great curriculum vitae before convincing any investor worth his salt to part with hundreds of thousands of dollars to fund a label. i tend to think that people like lars nilsson, peter dundas and olivier theyskens fall victim to this business.

    After looking at this for a while I love it even more, my favourite Resort collection along with Celine. I think Paglialunga's is the only 'modern' take on a Vionnet revival so far, and having done a lot of research on Vionnet over about 3 years, probably the closest to her way of creating than any of the other attempts.

    You can TELL he has read every article/book about her (as he claims) and not just picked some archive pictures to 'reinterpret' (Kokosalaki).


    I so dont understand the bitchy comments, and Im SO glad there were no floor-length bias-cut satin goddess dresses like everyone seems to be expecting. Its unfortunate that Vionnet is only remembered for that phase in her work.

    I think it's a pretty good modern take on Vionnet.
    I'm gonna cut the designer some slack seeing as he was just an assistant.
    He'll improve. I have some faith in this, its an amazing label, id like to see it flourish.

    To me it looks like a good attempt ... at a senior project. This doesn't look like professional level work to me.

    In good time i'm sure the designer will blossom.
    I mean do they have much experience other than being an assistant,
    i'm sure the company sees something we don't. I'll wait for the Spring collection to truly judge.
