Dior show was a bore. The only look I liked was KVA himself.

Liked some of the Ann D jackets and shirts. Too bad Jack Straw is no longer carrying the line, was my only local source.

I rather designers keep their roots intact instead of jumping around too much. it wasn't dissapointing, but it certainly wasn't spectacular. There was notable pieces, and I'm sure I will be amazed by some things when I see them up close compared to say, ROSS12.... Also, boris I'm not even gonna post...guy is just trying to become so great, but he ruins it.

I'm always amazed by how popular Goth-Futurist brands (Rick Owens, Julius, etc.) remain on this board particularly for S/S, when they seem especially uncomfortably unwearable since the last thing you'd want in 90 degs in any city is a second skin, however paper thin and buttery soft... But I do think those designers and their patrons should be commended for bucking the pervading, Italian peacock trend with some unique, consistent aesthetic. That said, I was really impressed by Viktor & Rolf, in whom I haven't been interested in years and years. LV was great but typically fairly basic stuff distinguished by great styling, for which I don't know if anyone sensible (even with the means) would pay when it could be had cheaper from smaller, artisan (Italian) brands. I was also surprised by how much I liked Valentino; the khakis paired with the vibrant colors it reminded me of old Jil Sander stuff. Also, they keep calling this Umit Bennan's 'debut' show for Trussardi but didn't they just hire him 2 weeks back? Wasn't he just styling stuff designed by Milan Vukmirovic?

Raf show seemed more like Jil than the Jil show did.

I like how no one crossforums is posting Raf collection, lulcz. Some thoughts NOW THEN May the circle be unbroken. Raf doesn't ride the escalator anymore, he stays on top of the stairs, it's too high the roots have been stretched thin, they broke. He doesn't come down to the floor, he refuses to commune with teh fashion. Isolation, isolation, isolation.

I don't think anyone designs/buys leathers for hot summer weather. I think they put it there because it's some cool shit that went with the designer's theme for that season. People will eventually get some use out of the leathers later on in the year. S/S stuff is in stores around F/W anyways, so it's not like you're buying a Julius leather in July and waiting till November for it to be wearable.
