THE HITS:

No. 21

“Strong and beautiful shapes and colors for women; interesting textures that meld classics with something new; luxurious feel to the fabrics; and thoughtful separates. No gimmicks, no reliance on styling and casting to push a new identity – there’s not a whiff of anything contrived, just quiet confidence for the self-assured women. Just supreme from head to toe.” [Phuel]

“I’ve always been a fan of Alessandro’s aesthetic and this is no different. I love how he constructs complicated pieces of clothing which, when styled right, look like elaborate basics and feel effortless.” [dodencebt]

“I love the fact he introduced some more intriguing and quirky silhouettes while staying true to his aesthetics.” [mackos]

Prada

“I love the sort of ‘vintage clothes presented in a futuristic environment’ thing going on, it almost felt as if Wes Anderson had directed 2001: A Space Odyssey. Also I loved how happy Miuccia seemed during her bow, it lasted longer than her previous peekaboos, so that must be good.” [dodencebt]

“I loved every single look. It definitely felt like a bit like Miu Miu but that didn’t bother me. Those dresses with the gloves were everything.” [Nepenthes]

“It was like what a young princess would wear in a retro-futuristic planet. 50s Couture in hyper speed. Prettiness in an artificial world. So, SO good.” [Marc10]

Fendi

“I actually really love this, too. I agree that Fendi is pretty underrated for what it is. I do tend to either love or hate a Fendi collection. This one is pretty flawless – amazing fabric choices, super modern and interesting cuts and silhouettes and awesome accessories. He totally nailed it with this one.” [Psylocke]

“I am constantly blown away by what Karl does at Fendi. This collection was no exception. Quite creative by Karl’s standard and exceedingly modern without being too forward.” [ogepma]

“This was amazing, love how Karl is putting the collection together and the transition of the colors and fabrics going for something very soft and clean to hard fabrics.” [zacatecas570]
