    beautiful...stiff leathers, thick flannels, sheer flowy things, feathers...all present and perfect.

    this is beautiful. so much better than the men's. I love the verticality of the designs and the weightlessness of so many of the pieces.
    the feather pins are detracting though.

    So beautiful. Many lovely and simple Ann elements put together for a wonderful collection.

    she can hold a note longer than any other designer I can think of.
    It's the same, but it's certainly beautiful. I always like it when she swings to the simpler side in her variations...it's great to see the lines of the tailoring instead of a blur of styling (which is lovely in its own way).

    I'm on the fence about this collection. I obviously like the long silhouette especially when the flow of the diaphanous garments is constricted by Ann's tailoring. But even there, I am looking for Ann's signature asymmetry and not finding any.

    I don't care for the loose, overflowing ensembles. The feathers stuck in the hats are distracting.

    Something tells me I would like it better if I was at the show. In general, I am finding a great difference between seeing a live presentation (movement, front, side, back) and just starting at front photos.

    The only part I really don't care for is some of the high-tech looking fabrics, only because I associate ann with natural fibers and elegant comfort. I think the leathers show/contrast really well, but not something I would want to wear in real life. That's really trying to nitpick though...the rest is trademark ann, the plethora of buttons, dip-dye, white-on-offwhite.

    I completely agree! I do love the "salem-witch-back-from-the-dead" vibe going on. Look closely - it's there. That's the only way I could justify having those "arrows" right in the head, as distracting as they are...

    I prefer harder Ann. This is a very soft and flowing presentation. Quite vertical and floaty. Upright Ophelia.

    I'd like it more with some dark and some edge.

    i echo Faust's sentiments, those flowy robes really do nothing for me. my fave look is this, those voluminous pants with paper bag waist look so comfortable and chill

    Feels like authentic Ann. A terrific companion to the last men's collection, too...
