Dior Haute Couture Fall 2011
It certainly says Dior, but not Galliano.
The Couture shows have started. Twice a year we get the chance to see what fashion is capable of, why it is consider art by some, and how far ideas can be materialized into clothes. I have to admit this are my favorite runways; creativity shown at its best. The hard work and the extreme detail that requires to produce a single piece of couture is mouth . Today Dior and were some of the first ones to present their couture collections. The Maison Martin couture collection was a complete ode to futurism. PVC, sheer fabrics, hard silhouettes, went for the characteristic point of view that distinguish the so much. On the other hand Dior went for architectural vibes. Strange isn't it? Where lies the beautiful and representation of old and good times? If we compare it with last Couture collection this seems spiritless, despite of the pastel palette. Cones, spheres and cubes spruce up models hair, while patterns remained consistent with such ornaments. For the first couture collection without , I felt quite disappointed. It's true, you can't expect a big display of Dior's capabilities after so much trouble the house has been after . Through the entire collection you can see the efforts of Bill , new Creative Director of Dior, but somehow that just doesn't seem enough. He said "it was time to do something a bit more modern at Dior" (). Contemporary couture you might call it, but I think most of us will stick with Old, Good, Galliano's Haute Couture times.
