PR: Ripping the Collections – Michael D
Let’s start the show.
Okay, right off the bat, we’re not loving it. We didn’t think this was at all a good look with which to start the show. We might like that top paired with something else, but that skirt is a bit much to take.
Now this, we love. It’s so young and art-student chic. We wouldn’t have predicted it but Michael D can turn out a pretty nice pair of pants. Those fit her quite well without being, to coin a term “Casanova-tight.” A little too loose in the hips, maybe. And while we don’t love the stain, we do love the sheer, fraying sweater.
We both agree this is awful.
Those shorts are bad; really bad. So bad, it’s a shame because they detract from the other pieces, which are kind of fab.
Don’t love this look. He’s not really bringing anything new to the table and it seems almost incongruous with the other looks, which have a lower key kind of urban chic feel to them.
Oh, and speaking of incongruous, this looks like it wandered in from Casanova’s collection. Totally coming out of left field. This really doesn’t belong with the other looks.
We realize this doesn’t look like much in the pictures but it moved beautifully and had a sexy, elegant simplicity to it that was very appealing.
It’s about a half and half. Half good and half bad. He got way too caught up in the metallics and some of that wrinkly deconstructed stuff could have been edited a bit. Plus a lot of the pieces weren’t styled to their best advantage. Still, there was something there in some of the pieces; a dreamy, moody sort of aesthetic that can be quite beautiful when its expressed well.
