WWM is much more than those pieces though. I think this past FW season was amazing and some fantastic new fabrics were used. IMO the collection was pretty poorly represented in U.S. stores... lots of very boring buys and some fantastic pieces missing or severely underbought.
I'm not very interested in what McNairy's done so far... It's by and large been good executions of obvious concepts and previously under represented designs. He seems all too conscious of trends and very much interested in being a part of the curve as opposed to ahead of or outside of it. I hope his interest in being a part of WWM is more than just name recognition and accounts.
