    I really like it. But the green pieces tend to look more Insect-Like then Jungle inspired. I’m not saying that as a bad thing.

  • Julie Chase

    That’s a lot of ugly patterns.

  • http://melaniesuzanne.blogspot.com/ Melanie Suzanne

    I can’t with the shoes.

    • sundaynightaddict

      I’m SO over the ugly shoe business from these runways. It’s pretty much guaranteed that designers are going to pair gorgeous clothes with disgusting shoes and makeup at every show these days.

      • sugarkane105

        I’m confused as to why designers can’t seem to find a happy medium – I’m glad when super-high stilettos are left out in favor of something more practical, but it seems designers then default to stoner sneakers (see above) or geriatric sandals (see Alberta Ferretti).

        • evave2

          I just don’t get it: the designer puts on a run-way show. The model is dressed exactly the way the designer chooses.
          Those sneaker-boat-shoe things on everything, even the dresses? Ruins the look.
          Now the last dresses had regular-type heeled shoes and looked better.
          Some of the outfits looked good, but then you gotta take in the model’s feet, and just no.
          (I also was not too fond of the heeled shoes, but they were better.)
          Also it looked the design was focused on the back. Some interesting cut-outs.

    • Grumpy Girl

      I was thinking, they saved a lot of money with the shoe budget. The sneakers, the sneakers, the snearkers, ooooh not sneakers (but damn those are ugly in white and in black), back to the sneakers . . .

      • smayper

        YES to all of these. Godawful sneakers, and over and over like a bad dream…

    • demidaemon

      Me either.

  • Noah

    Pretty, but fuck those sneakers.

  • Ashleigh


  • sugarkane105

    Honestly? I love a lot of this – my only exception is the dress with the large bow on the hip. And the low-top sneakers are cute with some of the more casual outfits.

    • Jessica Freeman

      That crazy ass bow does not belong….very random.

      • sugarkane105

        Yup, it’s like Jungle Fever… Tropical Islands… BOOM! 80’s Prom.

    • http://redheadedwolf.wordpress.com/ Laura Renee

      I’d like that top (I’m pretty sure it’s a top) if it weren’t for the bow.

      • sugarkane105

        Ah, I think you’re right, it is a top.

    • Kitten Mittons

      My thoughts pretty much exactly. A lot of those separates would really work when paired with simpler stuff. And some of the dresses are really cute.

  • Bad Idea Jeans

    Many of these things would look immeasurably better if they were paired with appropriate footwear rather than puffy hi-top sneakers.

    • MissAmynae

      yes. even just Keds would be better.

  • Jessica Freeman

    Crazy prints does not make an interesting collection. Nothing overly exciting, but I do like most of the striped pieces.

  • fursa_saida

    LOVE. I normally don’t go anywhere near any sort of tropical print, but these are abstracted (and vaguely sinister?) enough that I’m digging it.

    The black-and-white pieces say more “cyborg” to me and therefore feel like they’re from a different collection; but I like cyborg-related things, so I don’t really mind. Maybe this is a dystopian future in which cyborgs roam the jungle.

  • Myra Amler

    Some of these patterns just make my eyes hurt. And those shoes….

  • Fuchsiaforever

    meh….looks like ZARA stuff to me……

  • Raspberry2012

    First of all, I really like the funky sneakers with the dresses. I’m a big fan of that myself, especially in the summer time – I do a lot of walking, and my feet just can’t take the sandals for the long hikes I take.

    But furthermore, Stella should take note – THIS is how you combo up two contrasting prints and make them look fun!

    • Imasewsure

      Agreed about the prints. I don’t necessarily like these pieces either but they are WORLDS better than Stella’s nonsensical dreck and we can see why the patterns were paired at least. No one will be screaming or throwing things at their screens over this

    • Vanessa Reyes

      I was going to say the same thing…Stella needs to take note.

    • MilaXX

      Love that shift dress with the rust pattern going down the middle paired with the sneakers. Comfy and cute.

  • Lani A. George

    No excuse for failing to line up those stripes.

    • Gatto Nero

      Oh the top, shift dress, and skirt? I think it was intentional to break up the stripes at the curved seams. It gives the pieces contour and dimension as opposed to the widening/flattening effect of stripes straight across.

    • TonyGo

      Agreed, Gatto. Looks intentional to me. And it’s cute.

  • ballerinawithagun

    Is every designer required to do digital prints? Love the model’s haircut!

  • Imasewsure

    Looks like the INC department at Macy’s (not a complement)

  • http://armchairauthor.wordpress.com/ LesYeuxHiboux

    Kind of typical for the line: great prints, questionable shapes.

  • somebody blonde

    Love this collection.

  • ThaliaMenninger

    It’s backwards day — I like the shoes but very little else.

    • MissAmynae

      I like the low-tops.

      • ThaliaMenninger

        I agree. The high tops take it too far.

  • quiltrx

    LOVE that black/white oblong print. But that’s about it. I feel like some of the digital-print pieces have been done better by others.
    And are those sneakers made out of SWEATERS? Screw that. That does not say “resort” to me. (unless you had to “resort” to wearing them because all your other shoes died in a fire.)

  • NMMagpie

    Mostly nope. The LBDs are nice, though.

  • hughman

    On the bright side, the clothes repel marauding lions.

  • Kent Roby

    The green prints look inspired by Alexander McQueen. I don’t love this entire collection (the stripes are my favorite), but at least it generally looks “resort”.

    • kimmeister

      Yes, my main thought was that, for once, I can imagine this entire collection actually being worn at a resort.

  • Sarah

    I like it. I like the sneakers, too. I think the black & rust combinations are more successful than the green prints, especially when mixed together, but overall I enjoy the jungly feel and all the attention to the backs of garments.

  • Gatto Nero

    It’s a little busy, though the pattern mixing mostly works (unless Stella M’s). Some nice details and easy silhouettes. But nothing groundbreaking.

  • FibonacciSequins

    I’m so sick of ironically cheesy 70’s porn-styled photoshoots. I can’t even evaluate the clothes because I can’t get past the bad lighting, the huge palm, the ugly tile and wall-sized mirror.

  • sleepycat

    okay so this is not about the clothes, which I think are fine, maybe the prints aren’t that attractive. I really wanted to point out the model, while on the thinner side looks healthier and more toned than the usual “I eat breath mints” look, which to my mind is always a good thing.

  • Lower L


  • Matt Wołoszyn

    Looks like McQueen does “The Jungle Book” …in sneakers.

  • R.A.

    I like that they had the models pose in front of mirrors so that we could see the backs of the garments as well. Nice touch.

    The collection itself is meh to me. I don’t like the prints they chose.

  • MilaXX

    Cute. It definitely feels resort unlike so many so called resort collections. I even like the low cut version of the sneakers.

  • susan6

    Many of the patterned dresses are really cute, as long as you only scroll down to the ankles. (Nicole: stop trying to make those fugly shoes happen. They’re not going to happen.)

  • Synnamin

    Nice enough, wearable collection. Nothing earth-shattering

  • Synnae

    Very cute and wearable but the prints (and some of the designs) either look like McQueen knock offs (his final collection) or expensive versions of Forever 21…
    I like the black dresses with the cut outs but as a girl with real big boobs, the second one is forever out of my reach.

  • Mothra

    Not a fan of those riding jodhpurs or those weird puffy high top sneaks, but like the rest of the collection a lot. That said, I could wear some of those things to work. So there you go.

  • http://phantomminuet.blogspot.com/ MinAgain

    Now, that looks like a resort collection.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_QFW22QV426LUOEPGASPZJWJMDE MishaFoomin

    Stormtrooper leggings!

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

    Well, that was ZZZZZZZZZ…

  • PinkyK

    Are those camo high tops? Ew.

  • KT

    The last six looks are really cute, as is the navy + green striped dress, but the rest is disappointingly redacted. And the sneakers are both distracting and hideous; I actually had to shield my eyes from them so that I could view the rest of the looks objectively.

  • marlie

    I like a lot of the silhouettes, but the print dresses are kind of ugly. I do like the black and white print, and I like the all-black or all-white, and the colorblocked looks.

    Those shoes need to be thrown into an incinerator, though.

  • LJCdoc

    Was the theme for this collection “kind of cute dresses; hiddy shoes”?

  • Granny panties

    I love the models’s haircut. I don’t mind the low top sneakers, I like the outfit 3rd from bottom very much. The high tops yuk. The shot with the blazer pants and sunglasses, quite cool and chic.

    • bellthekitten

      I can’t even see the clothes for how much I covet the model’s hair.

  • Danielle

    The sneakers are aw.ful.

  • MaggieMae

    I was very excited to see Nicole Miller, but now I am disappoint!

  • Tami from Seattle

    It looks to me like someone failing to do Christian Siriano. Hate ‘Working Girl’ sneakers and skirts.

  • http://www.bertkeeter.com Bert Keeter

    PALM TREE’S OK… rest awful!

  • demidaemon

    It’s sexy and cool. But those shoes that are in 90% of the shoes are fugly and all I notice in those shots. FUG-LY.

  • jml27

    Love it all.

  • Bonnie Blue

    I like the 2nd dress from the bottom but I think that rust-colored center panel looks a little like a loincloth. I don’t mind the low-top sneakers but the high-tops remind me of those slippers made out of sweater material.

  • Elle

    way to riff: proenza schouler s/s 12′

  • MemHey

    Fifth look (and seventh?) is definitely a Cyberman.

    • Innuendo

      The 8th look bottoms belong to a Star Wars stormtrooper!

  • gitchygitchymama

    Garishly Obnoxious as usual.

  • http://journal.translarte.de/ Muyserin

    The model reminds me of Debbie Harry.

  • israel8491

    The collection itself is meh, but the shoes make me happy. High heels, especially ones that are as extreme as the ones models have to wear, hurt like hell. I’d love to see a collection where the models where bunny slippers.

  • MoHub

    I can’t take my eyes off all the ugly shoes.

  • Lex

    The collection seems to lack much design innovation– she lets the patterns do all the work but the actual designs are about as basic as one can get. Department store cuts in garish fabric. The shoes are a joke.

  • P M

    The shapes are plain, the patterns are enh, the shoes are NO.

  • anotherkate

    I really love the clothes. And I would wear the sneakers with jeans (sue me, I live in Brooklyn!). Agree with others that they don’t go together, though.

  • JynxTheCat

    All I see is stupid shoes.
