On the one hand, we thought the so-called "prize" for the mini-challenge - 5 minutes alone with Isaac - sounded...well, first off, it sounded a little sexual, but more importantly, it sounded like a bullshit prize.
We figured that all of the present designers already had some sort of understanding of what Mizrahi does, but y'know?
Except for maybe that jacket. Isaac clearly hated it. We didn't hate it so much. We liked the silhouette; we just didn't like that it was made out of felt and we didn't like the gigantic ... what were those things, anyway? Closures?
Take off the jacket and it looks like somethings straight out of Isaac's collection.
We love all the fabric choices and the way they simultaneously go with each other while at the same time providing a little visual tension because the first impulse is to think they don't go with each other.
We especially like the contrasting plaid in the skirt...
And that pop of color in the belt, although we're not fans of the heavy-looking fabric they used.
And we love the fabric in that top but we hate that kibble (or whatever it is) sewn into the neckline.
All in all, a pretty strong entry from the queen contingent.
And a pretty weak entry from the bitch contingent.Man, was this bad.
The jacket was just alright, although it seemed a little dated, both in silhouette and in color.
The blouse was actually pretty cool, with some interesting details.
But those PANTS, kittens. They are INDEFENSIBLE. Just horrible. Every single thing about them is wrong. The height of the waist, the height of the cuffs, the fabric choice, the pleating -- everything.
We realize that the two designers not only hate each other but work in very different styles, so a win was probably never going to happen but even we were shocked at how bad this garment turned out.
Reco can take some comfort in that he was vindicated in the judging, but he still had a hand in sending that horrific thing down the runway, so he can skip the smirking.
