Yesterday John Galliano showed the Christian Dior F2009CTR collection and my oh my, was it a feast for the eye!! The piercing colors - orange, lime, yellow, fuchsia, raspberry - showcased beautifully against the muted grey walls inside the house's headquarters in the Avenue Montaigne. If anything was to be noted, it's that this collection is a product of fanciful tailoring, brilliant structure, and glorious silhouettes.
We also saw a lot of exposed 50s style undies - bras, corsets, garters, girdles, stockings - as if to throw the models out there, onto the runway, in a furry and only mid-dressed.
Of course, I loved all the black and white I saw, too! It's always elegant, it's always beautiful, it's always a classic!
And then there were the explosive gowns, overflowing with volume...lots and lots of volume! The exquisite embellishments, the mixing of textures and tones are nothing short of the work of a genius!! J'adore Dior!
