While I want to say that I really really like this collection, I have to confess that I don't really. Francisco Costa is a designer's designer, and he is, in my mind one of the finest, and here, as always you can see Mr Costa designing himself into a froth. It's a great, intellectual exercise, and its really interesting technically but it's also ponderous and leaden and and laboured and leaves one a bit cold. It could all very well come down to the styling (the boots!), but still.
