Those were the worst years. The Jil collections were good but the namesake label suffered from the creeping minimalist contamination and eventually evolved towards aseptic blandness.

Didn't AnnD (SS12 ? or smthg) use massive amount of velvet-ish shit ? That collection looked like HA lite but the pajamas volumes made it work, somewhat. It's always tight pants with Ackermann though, to much lament, all the more tragic when you see his recent womenswear collections. And I feel like velvet is maybe the shittiest fabric you could work with, almost always ends up looking like crap and cheap and not that pleasing to wear. The only velvet stuff I can recall...

Low key Lemaire minus Christophe, looks very classic but everything is still there. Always wondered what he'd do with a Hermès menswear collection and I feel this is probably a pretty close approximation.
