Well, I have been having too much fun posting about Gretchen's feats on the runway and the red carpet. So why stop now?

This time, it is Christopher Straub's turn. If you remember, Chris was not only incredibly talented but also very likeable. I was sorry to see him go, and I am happy that he has put a collection out.

Here are some highlights from his current collection, along with the usual running commentary. And not because I like him it means that I will not point out what I like and what I don't.

However, one thing is for sure. Whether one likes his stuff or not, his garments do look well put together. Thank the deity of your choice for that...

Oh, and did I mention that he also designs handbags? Groovy.

THE HITS

The grey dress is nicely cut and very wearable. I am not fond of neutral colors, but I can see that it is well finished and very flattering. The handbag is right out of his accessory collection and it pairs nicely with the outfit.

The blue dress with the purple belt is not exactly my cup of tea. However, those petals are very much in trend and the fit and workmanship are excellent.



THE MISSES

Dude. That's a muumu. Please make it go away. You know better than that.



THE I WANT THAT

Yes please. I want one of those. And the handbag is nice too.



You can see the entire collection here and here.

So what do you think my darlings? Thumbs up? Thumbs down? One of each? Thoughts?

I am definitely having too much fun with this.

Belfebe out.

Yeah, I can see that. But at least they are well put together. Not a collection to rock the world, but nice enough. And I like his handbags.

Nice use of pattern. THIS is someone who understands how to use the pattern of the fabric to accentuate the garment.

While I'm not a fan of the mumuu, I like the pattern of the fabric and think that it could be a very pretty dress with a little more fitting at the waist. I like the top part of it, though.

I think he does need to learn to design for women who are not built like boys.

I was thinking about that muumu. He has a lot of beach wear in the rest of the collection. As something to wear to the beach, or the spa, that's pretty. As a red carpet gown, not so much.

Definitely beachwear.

I like his much better. They look like the work of a designer rather than a teen with a home sewing machine.
