Let me start off by saying that John Galliano x Christian Dior is untouchable. I don’t think there will ever be a collection I won’t find myself in love with. Christian Dior plays in its own league and, for me, is the definition of high fashion, couture & French elegance. For Spring 2010 Galliano sticked to the lingerie theme he first introduced us to in his Fall 2009 couture show where models were pantless and everything was presented with garters and semi-sheer knickers.
What I also really liked were the film noir references. Galliano said he designed this collection with actress Lauren Bacall in mind. Hourglass silhouettes, lamÃ© dresses, short trenchcoats, transparent chiffon gowns – all in all a solid, romantic & feminine collection with the usual, flawless quality you’ve come to expect of Dior and its mastermind Monsieur Galliano. Already looking forward to Spring 2010 Couture.
