I also agree on you with the whole McQueen/Burton Gaytten/Galliano thing. They take everything they built up, their whole empire, and change it. So much for honoring the designer.
They're just using the brands names to keep up their sales. People will buy it anyway, because hell, it's McQueen.
Every girl should know John Galliano, but they'll think Bill Gaytten is some ranchy country singer. It's just wouldn't be the same - their collections would doubtfully be as well received under another house.
Do I make sense?
Yeah totally! And it wouldn't be as big of a problem if their collections were actually good or if they had some sort of semblance towards the original designer's vision, but Burton and Gaytten just completely ignored it and did their own thing. Gaytten I'm not really as mad about since his collection would've been nice had it been for another designer like Yohji Yanamoto, but that travesty of a collection Sarah Burton designed for F/W 12 was ridiculous. It was neither a good collection or a McQueen collection. I'm kind of scared to see what she came up with for this season
