Christian Dior

Autumn 12

With the rumour mill still turning at Dior, names keep going around and around but no one is yet to make it past the gilt-edged doors. The hearsay has somewhat overshadowed every collection since John Galliano’s shock departure last year, not that there is much in the autumn 12 collection to get that excited about. Yes, the collection was nice, but this is Dior and nice is not enough. Nipped-in waists, peplums, modest-length full skirts – it had all the trappings of Dior’s rapidly becoming infamous New Look as prim dresses and separates paraded elegantly in muted vanilla, seal grey and dusky pink shades, on rich embroidered silks. Sheer tulle skirts had the finale wow factor which will look perfect on the red carpet, but in a collection that felt repetitive, what was the most celebrated period in Dior’s history now seems to be coming back to haunt it.
