    Seen it, not impressed. If you want Costume, get Costume. I don't even see the design differences in the way you see them between Prada and Miu Miu, and Dolce & Gabbana and D&G for example. It's more like Marc Jacobs and Marc for Marc Jacobs, a more limited collectiomn of the same stuff, but poorer design, materials, and construction.

    Of course, I hate all things Ittierre SPA manufactured, from exte to Versace Jeans, so my comments should be taken as extremely subjective.

    Why? That is to say why do you hate them?

    The manufacturing is generally horrible, the fabrics (especially the synthetics) worse, and the designs garish. Not sure what else need be said...
