    This is the first time Jil has looked at least halfway decent to me in a couple seasons. Like the focus back on basics with a slight twist. Disliked there was no color except for the random whale sweater.

    That being said, can't wait to kop Jil brown paper bag. First in line.

    Sweet, Jil Sander has paper bags, outerwear made out of garbage bags, and a dinosaur sweater

    Why does anyone let Raf Simons do ANYTHING anymore?

    That's it? Bah probably made in China then. I was hoping it would be super luxe, made from the pulp of African Blackwood or something. Hand processed by the finest of Italian craftsmen.

    Yeah I know it is too, but seriously, what item has Raf Simons designed in the past five years that somebody actually bought and looks good

    All I see is people buying Raf on sale on Mr. Porter or something and looking TERRIBLE just because it's Raf
    This doesn't happen to that degree with any other designer save maybe Rick Owens

    Dude can cut a suit or coat or pants or whatever, but anything "fashion" he has done lately is just kind awful

    All will kop dino sweaters and despair.

    and honestly I really liked the JIl collection because 1. The tailoring was razor-sharp, and 2. I thought it was really funny. It's like a serial killer going to work without realizing that his kid bedazzled a fish on his shoe. The fellas are never going to let him live that one down!

    agreed jil was horrible, though not entirely unexpected given raf offerings in recent years. Having said that, I don't mind the whale sweater.

    I think the biggest surprise was dolce & gabbana...they used (multiple) asian models and one black model!! The show is actually my favorite of the bunch posted so far. The full video is on their site.

    I like the way the insignificant paper-like (?) bags completely undermine the sinister aura of the outfits, I think it looks ridiculous and it works (especially paired with the gloves).


    Everything else though... (boombox.. wat ? ).

    The gloves are definitely creepy as the dickens, and add to the serial killer aura.
