I initially wrote a winded entry about Milan Fashion Week and it’s fall highlights, but after seeing today’s Christian Dior Paris Fall 2010 show, I had to immediately share it with you all.
Always a favorite of mine, John Galliano delivers perfectly crafted, feminine garments with a sexy edge. While the collection may not have been as cohesive as editors would have liked, it had all the Dior details to make one drool. Often a fan of equestrian themes and eighteenth century milieu, Galliano had models galloping down the runway in English riding attire broken up with soft colored, georgette, ruffly dresses. Then, there was the leather to supply ample edge – jackets and dresses with texture detail in brown and blacks, gave the collection a more fall feeling. Over-the-knee boots and thigh high socks also added warmth to some of the barer looks.
It is truly one of my favorite collections to date! The feminine rawness is both timely and timeless. May I never wake from my Dior dream…
