    Really a clever and pretty collection from this "emerging" :? designer.

    Oversized stitching, unfinished hems and gorgeous raw knits, metal ring vests and my favorite, reminiscent of Gaultier's last Couture, buttons as jewelry strung together with invisible thread... Both day and evening looks interestingly seem to subvert "modern" fashion and hearken to "tradition" instead of the opposite, which tends to be the more usual vector or direction.

    Some looks from the collection:

    Very clever & innovative, but the top row is not really to my taste.
    I like the 'tweedy' looks on the second row.

    Not a fan. :? Maybe it's all the black and white and pearls and tweed, but it seems like this designer is too influenced by Chanel...but the designs the, ahem, "older" ladies would wear. :shock: But, then again, what do I know? :roll: :lol:

    Sometimes it takes "cute" things to a strange place, and sometimes it's just plain...cutesy.

    Hm, well I heavily curated that AW 05 collection...left a LOT out. A lot of it I thought was really bad actually, but to me the good looks were worth it. I like to see designers carry themes throughout a collection, whether it's a technique or a feeling. I like your morbid waterlilies description. Like I said before, I liked when he made cute prints, colors, etc. look strange and sickly almost. I like the pieces that are more unsettling.

    Looks like multiple necklines were transformed into decorative element

    So many designers try to make frumpy ski sweater type prints look fashionable

    The trench is the best thing. The prints become so overbearing, I can't even look at any of those pieces
