Dior Couture Spring 2009

5 02 2009

John Galliano’s drew his inspiration from “Flemish painters and Monsieur Dior.”  He’d cross-referenced the soft blues and golds of Vermeer and the elaborate lace collars and sleeves of Van Dyck with typically Galliano-esque hyper-exaggerations of Dior’s tight-waisted, full-skirted fifties shapes. As a starting point, it evoked some of the romantic femininity of Dior’s silhouette, but with surface ruffles and bouncing crinolined hemlines that went way beyond any sense of postwar austerity.

The collection is out of this world.  I truly appreciated his extravegance and his creativity.  Look at all the details on each garment.  So dreamy!
