“I felt like they were swimming heavily in Saint Laurent territory… and the other half of the time they were just drowning in the ugliness they’ve become synonymous with over the past few years. I don’t even know what to think of this label anymore…” [HeatherAnne]

“They became the recipients of absurdly random and enthusiastic hype. Over the past few years, though, the emperor’s clothes have been yanked away. What we have here is one of the most disjointed and desperate collections I’ve ever seen, with shameful lifts from Ghesquière’s Vuitton and Givenchy topped off with frilly and sparkly fussiness.” [Steddycam91]

“There’s maybe a couple of cute numbers here but most of it is beyond me. Maybe I just don’t get it, but who is their customer?” [Vitamine W]

Rag & Bone

“This is just ugly and tired.” [thisismyname]

“Like their ad campaigns, Rag & Bone runway shows do absolutely nothing for me. My advice: stop trying so hard – it feels inauthentic to what your brand excels at, which is making basics (not this wannabe trendsetting stuff that parades down your runway) that everyday (read, not Michael Pitt) people will wear.” [HeatherAnne]

“Shiny shiny…that is all…” [softgrey]

Public School

“Pains me to say that they’re losing steam. Not much here that I’m in love with.” [nataliaapple]

“I never understood the hype, I still don’t understand the hype. Just another Rag & Bone…” [TianCouture]

“Swing and a miss…” [iclawhands]
