Maybe he works better under stress, because this? Best thing in the whole collection. Cute and flirty and sporty, which from our perspective is exactly what Daniel was trying to do with this collection. There's not much to talk about because it's such a simple look, but we love the collar, which is reminiscent of the ivory coat and we love the styling. The boots and gloves make the look.
Remember when we said there was one other look we hated more than the puffy shirt? That would be this one. She looks like a little girl trying on her mother's clothes - all of them at once.
And those are the wrong shoes.
At first we were all "Take a couple elements away and it would be a perfectly fine dress."
hell is going on there? That looks like the front of a different dress. In fact, that looks so much like a bust that she has this weird, Death Becomes Her twisted-head vibe going on when she walks away.
We're really getting our bitch on and it sounds like we hated this collection, but that's not it. It could have been a very basic, if a little boring, American sportswear-inspired collection and that would have been fine. Problem is, he went for all these crazy embellishments, which, one after another, became more and more frustrating. Plus, taken as a whole, the collection is pretty disjointed. It's good that he showed a range, but he had no through-line. It wasn't helped by the fact that there were too many colors (blues, purples, ivory, light green, browns, not to mention the plaid and that black and white print or jacquard). We still think he's talented and he's got what it takes, but he needs someone standing over his shoulder and editing him.
