Chanel Couture Fall 2010
Dior Couture Fall 2010
Between Imperial inspiration and the garden of Alice in Wonderland, this two collections are my favorites so far. Lagerfeld went for a bold palette, navy, wine red, camel with golden details; something of that amazing craftsmanship remind me of a forgotten Russian empire. Galliano went for the representation of a very colorful spring, and as always, the collection couldn’t be more theatrical. With idyllic inspiration as well as photographic, Galliano created tulips, among other flowers, in organza, completing them with the help of Stephen Jones, who created those plastic head pieces that just nail the eccentricity of the couture collection of Dior. These two collections are a clear example that couture is not just about the craziest dreams of their creators but it is also about the artistic work the two ateliers have achieved in their long lives, making fantasies a reality.
