I just got an email from Burda announcing this collection: Burda Attention to Detail Collection

I went to the page and the very first thing I noticed as I scrolled through the pics were the awful rippled/puckered inseams on all the pants. I know it's hard to get smooth seams on those fabric choices, but I find it ironic given the collection's title...

I just finished reading that and came here...it doesn't look like the burgundy blazer fits the model either.....

Is it only me or is that model painfully thin? I found it hard to look at her....

Yeah, the jacket is folding between the shoulder and the collar, and the orange blouse pulling across her bony shoulder isn't a good look, either...

I love that zip skirt! I was able to ignore the skinny model because my eyes were wavering from the teeny geometrics.

What rippled seams? My eyes are too watery trying to focus on the background. Reminds me of a caledescope. My brain's trying to figure out if they photoshoped the models onto the background or used a wide paint brush tool to add the busy background to hide construction issues. Looks like too much cropping of the subjects.

I do like the zippered skirt.

LOL! This really is a comedy of errors isn't it? I don't think the model would look quite as thin if her head didn't seem so big. But even in trying to not concentrate on that, I would not have picked many of these fabrics or the prints on them. (And those backgrounds really do make your eyes water.)

I do love that burgundy jacket though (unfortunately, I have boobs and couldn't wear it.) The checkered trench coat is also quite awesome.

I think part of the problem is that the model has been photographed against one background and then extracted using photoshop and placed on another (very strange) background... parts of her body have actually been lost in the process (most visible in the orange shirt pic--check out her right arm) making her appear even smaller than she actually is. Photoshop is not responsible for the puckered inseams, though!

Oh, just figured out that the backgrounds are macro shots of the fabrics used... no wonder it looks so strange!

WHO sews the samples!?!? Gosh. Both pairs of pants look horrific at the seams.

I love the pockets on the wide leg pants. That's reason enough to buy...right? :)

I like the cowlneck dress and love the skirt.

Hate the shoot. I had to navigate away so as to not get a headache!

I don't think those kind of obvious pants wrinkles are a sewing problem, or pants made in any bad way, or even lack of ironing before the photo at all, kind of problem, just that I think it's more and shows up a lot, in that photo, because of the shiny fabric they are made of, it looks like maybe Silk Dupioni or something like that. Also a lot, because of her stance, with the one leg thrown out like that. And the particular lighting in the photo too. As fabric does either reflect or absorb light just like anything else does. If someone else made them, out of non shiny fabric, and was not posed quite that way, and not in the same lighting conditions, I don't think they would even look the same.
