THE HITS:

Haider Ackermann

“Immaculate. It's great to see Haider moving way from that iridescent stuff… while it maintains that romantic nonchalance we know of him lately it also feels quite organic. This and his previous season it's felt as though he's bringing back a lot of those elements from his earliest years.” [Scott]

“Wow. One of his best in a while. It doesn't feel self indulgent — feels really pure and considered and… well, like Scott said, immaculate. Really well done collection.” [dior_couture1245]

“I love it! Some of the looks are just so effortlessly cool, while others are insanely elegant. And they all look like 'the' Haider Ackermann woman, it's different and still so him. I looove how he used fur here, those looks are my favorites. Great collection!” [Psylocke]

Junya Watanabe

“I love the shapes and layers here…especially in the opening looks. So lovely.” [Fiercification]

“Probably my favorite show of the season. Everything looks amazing, the textures, patterns, fabrics… so amazing. The outerwear is to die for, I want every single cape and coat.” [mistress_f]

“Gorgeous!! Just when I'm trying to wean myself off of black.” [Melisande]


Givenchy

“I might cry! FINALLY! He's got that mess out of his system and doing great collections again!! And what an incredible collection it is! So happy to have this [Riccardo] Tisci back!” [VogueDisciple93]

“Really strong offering from Tisci this season. Feels much more grown up and less 'street' which I'm so pleased with. It's very 70s glam/YSL – which I feel like is something rather new from Riccardo.” [dior_couture1245]

“Wow… this is just fantastic. I think best collection in Paris so far. When he does feminine, it is when he is at his best.” [gossiping]
