Just had to dash off a quick note and let you know my feelings about the new collection. OMG OMG OMG what are you smoking girlfriend with these clothes? You are a far cry from designers departments these days, in fact, are you in any of them anymore … just asking!! It seems to me that you have gone off the reservation and steered directly to a contemporary collection that might be suited for a JCP girl or maybe a Macy’s chick; but deffo bridge and tunnel.
Anyway it seemed to appropriate to send my condolences after seeing the collection. Your inspirations were as you said “This season is really about a Parisian woman in the 1960s – her sensibility, her lifestyle and her confidence. I wanted to create a collection that embodied French bohemia with mod elements – tailored jackets, short shifts, hounds tooth prints and textured tweeds – cool wearable pieces that women want right now.” The problem is you went right to the runways of Celine, Chloe, Saint Laurent and god knows who else to get “inspired” and to complicate matters you cheapened the looks even more than they did.
From my point of view, you are treading on very thin ice and trying to hold onto whatever reputation you have left and as my advice has been to you in previous times... toss in that towel and run for the hills while you still have any shred credibility left. Only your best friends would tell you this.
Hopefully, there will be no more notes like this because it hurts my heart to tell you these things but what are friends for??
Kiss kiss... An Ivy lunch soon?
and P.S. you see , even losing the silly hats and the puddling pants, the clothes just don't cut it hon.. so say buh bye and get another styling client instead!
