I don't disagree with this at all. I've looked at a couple collections, and really didn't care for them in teh slightest. However, I'm not really into fashion, so it's hard for me to judge them.Well, having seen the bulk of the Fall 21 collections to date, I'm even more convinced that this thread is death's antechamber. Sorry my friends.
Raf is still batting for you with his new venture at Prada - although there are plenty of slouchy silhouettes there too. Oh, and Owens also mixes up the skinny with the sloppy. Other than that, there's pretty much only Undercover keeping it fully trim (although I have to say I rather liked the collection all the same).
Pretty much everywhere else is draped in asphyxiating quantities of loose fabric. But I guess you can take some solace in the fact that anything this fashionable can only become unfashionable again soon.
Still, I guess there's hope; not all the votes are in yet.
Someone started a thread a couple of days ago to discuss Raf's first collection at Prada. Exactly one person replied, and I'm pretty sure the thread is heading to an early grave. I really wanted to say something, especially since on paper Raf Simons taking over at Prada should be really thrilling--but to me the looks just looked like typical fashion stuff you'd see at Prada, Galliano Margiela, stuff like that.
I have to confess that I've never really understood these runway collections that consist of clothes that aren't really intended to be worn. Rick Owens would be an extreme example, but I can't really see people walking around with those rolled up blazer sleeves over the bicep that Raf had his runways sporting. I don't know; maybe that is the new thing?
