I really like Teiler and was sorry to see him go. I agree, though, that his collection seemed uninspired--despite his references to Van Gogh. And outsourcing so much of the work (the embroidery) was a mistake, I think. Had he done the embroidery himself, it would have been a wowza.
I do look forward to seeing the other 3 collections. I have the feeling that Chris might be the sleeper in all of this.
