Phillip Lim Resort Collection - The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

According to Style Spy Phillip Lim is the next Oscar de la Renta
Phillip Lim showed his Resort 2010 collection in New York Monday. I won't go so far as to say that it's my favorite collection ever, or even my favorite Lim ever, but it doesn't do anything to dissuade me from the fashion crush I have on this very talented designer.
I think I've stated before that I feel like Phillip Lim is our next Oscar de la Renta. He makes chic, gorgeous clothes that most every woman admires when she sees and looks good in when she wears. There is a definite, inescapable femininity and youth in Lim's designs, but he is very young himself and there's no reason to imagine that his clothes won't mature as he does.
I wish that I could say the same.
Looking for The Good, The Bad and The Ugly in Lim's 2010 Resort Collection all I could come up with was The Bad, The Ugly and The Hideous.
Even a pretty willowy blond model can't make these clothes look appealing.
I too think that Lim is very talented
but when designers purposely create clothes that are unflattering, as Lim has in this collection, they show disdain for their clients.

Mmmm I can't see any redeeming features in these clothes - especially those patchwork jeans - not flattering in the least.

Imogen, the boxy jacket, the pleated lame shorts, the ruffled dress, the patchwork pants...this collection is wrong on so many levels it boggles the mind.

I'm not feeling it either.
