Christian Dior

The look:
Never looking too far away from his own archive, John Galliano’s presentation revisited the classic New Look of 1947 in billowing, hooped skirts paired with nipped in jackets with off-the-shoulder or Galliano’s signature portrait collar necklines. The palette of black and white was juxtaposed with cornflower blue, old gold and deep red.

Key pieces:
Red carpet gowns came in delicate corseted chiffon hand-painted with flowers and heavily beaded leaves. Applique(acute accent) rosette, guipure lace trims and billowed sleeves reminiscent of a Vermeer painting added a whimsical yet feminine edge. A sense of history came through too on full crinolined gowns in watermarked taffeta in shades of coral or claret.
