QUOTE: “I think what defines our time is that women want to look sophisticated and they want casual sports clothes—those are the two big obsessions.”

COMMENTARY: I’m guessing that the designer forgot to look at the collection he was speaking of or maybe he was speaking of a different collection all together. I will not chew this up and spit and out but to say why?? Who wants to look like this for 1000s of dollars, why do you want some retread or cartoon handbags from an old Chanel collection and do you really think neoprene is a wearer friendly fabrication? Lastly since this collection is supposedly aimed at millennials or teenagers, were the prices reduced to compete with H&M and Zara? P.S.  save for a few beautifully tailored jackets, and or suits, where is this sophisticated in any way shape or form… let the editorial stampede begin!
