Dior is back!!
John Galliano is back!!
After disappointing season after season (since 2007 to be exact, when John Galliano set a new standards for fashion shows through out the year) Dior came back this season with something amazingly beautiful. It seems Mr Galliano finally found a way to distill his extravagant theatrics into something dramatic yet still commercial during his less successful seasons. Also, this season marked John Galliano's much-needed departure from his tired reinterpretations on Monsieur Dior's New Look and Lady Dior handbag (although I personally quite missed Lady Dior this season). People have been pointing out John Galliano's obsession of the New Look for quite sometime. I understand he is trying to keep Dior's legacy alive by revamping it but it seemed almost unhealthy and I felt Mr Galliano was limiting his amazing creativity little too much.
Dior seemed to cement this season's most prominent trends, which was leather and fur, treated in innovative ways and saw the continuation of last season's 'rustic' trend. This Prêt-à-Porter show was also a follow-on from the acclaimed couture show three months earlier with it's equestrian-themed narrative.
This collection was sexy, luxurious and sophisticated. What I liked about it is the fact that there were a lot of items I could look at. It was strange because this was the first Dior Prêt-à-Porter show that i took notice of how the looks were styled with jeweleries, hats, bags and shoes. It's probably because Dior shows usually showed one strong garment as a look, this was the first time I noticed layering. I loved the opening look on Karlie Kloss, brown leather highwayman's cape worn over ruffled chiffon dress (amazing contrast!)with leather thigh-high boots. Other high lights of the show included over sized cream knit cardigan-coat threaded elaborately with blue satin ribbon, checked blanket coat and jackets in mohair and sexy ruffled leather dresses.
And Thank you Dior for FINALLY uploading HQ video of the show on the website
