I can’t say my expectations were high about Christian Dior Spring/ Summer 2012 collection since I was a great fan of John Galliano’s creations. But I still thought some drama in the label’s collections would preserve. It didn’t. And I’m disappointed. I’m in no way saying the range was bad or plain. But it was simply good. Nothing really outstanding and nothing I would praise much.
Bill Gayten, who used to be Galliano’s right hand, did everything to keep Christian Dior at the place it was. He kept the idea of femininity and classic silhouette, paid much attention to details and organized a lovely show. But when I watched the models walking the runway I couldn’t get rid of the feeling something significant was missing. Maybe it was the genuine love to woman’s beauty or something else, but without it the collection didn’t impress.
Christian Dior Spring/ Summer 2012 collection featured a great variety of pretty delicate dresses in lovely colors. Frills, sheer fabrics, floral patterns and embroidery made the range look beautiful. Skirt suits looked classy and coats with cute bows were amazing. But majority of cocktail dresses were not Dior chic. They looked plain and sometimes even uglified models’ figures.
