    I'm interested in what people more knowledgeable about Ann's work think. While I liked it a lot, it feels like Sebastien is feeling pressure to tone down his own creative direction and basically act as a proxy for Ann for all the Ann fans. I'm seeing less of his own 'spin' in this collection compared to those he's done in the past. It's a lot of extrapolation and theorizing, I know.

    Also curious about people's thoughts on what's novel here, and what's recycled?

    I'd say yes with the last collection, but not with this one. Ann would never do something so effeminate. I actually think he's found the balance here.

    Such a beautiful display, these backstage photos really show the tailoring involved in these collections. Reminds me a little of 'Eleanor'(if that's the proper title for AW09) but that might just be my brain. Great job Sebastian!

    This was far and away my favourite collection from this season. Everything about it speaks to me in this weird way - it's perfectly romantic and poetic. Plus, I really want a choker now.

    Sebastien nailed it this season, the perfect balance of the fabric selection and the silhouettes truly show what the brand is known for, this to me is poetic and elegant. IMO this is the best styled collection from the recent shows thus far.

    I love this, definitely his best so far at Ann. More feminine than what Ann would do but still full of that romantic spirit that fills me with desire. Still I wonder who will be wearing all these sheer shirts.

    Wasn't a fan of the past collections by Meunier; however, this collection is amazing. A breath of fresh air after the numerous dull collections presented this season.

    I agree with Faust. You can see it in the plunging necklines and some of the more decorative elements. I'm an Ann tragic, and my response to this collection is almost violently mixed – some pieces I love, some I find offensive. But his personality is definitely coming through.

    Anyone know the name of the song that was playing during the show?

    Agree with Tmm3h.

    Not liking this collection at all. Much prefer the older era when he fresh from taking over from Ann, it was bold, confident and uncompromising. Miss the sharpness where you'd see a piece or a curation and say - yes, what is THAT? (Like that feeling you get reminiscing over Damir Doma)
    Where now its just fast forward.

    You see Meunier himself wearing all his past seasons designs at the end of the shows - says a lot
