I have to say it again: I loved Christian Dior Sooo much with John Galliano creating for it. Now with Bill Gaytten it has transformed, and that’s not the transformation I personally appreciate. It has become more demure and wearable that makes it quite profitable, but drama we loved it for has disappeared, both the drama of the show and the clothing. The first couture collection, designed without the touch of Galliano’s incredible genius, is beautiful, feminine and delicate… but isn’t it too similar to the Spring/ Summer 2012 range? Isn’t it too simple for couture?
Bill Gaytten, who has designed Christian Dior Couture collection for Spring 2012, says he has been inspired by works of the brand’s founder while working on the collection. He explained:
All the structure of iconic Dior, thanks to lots of fittings.”
Christian Dior Spring 2012 Couture collection abounds with dresses with cinched waists, see-through fabrics and beautiful floral prints and embroidery. None of the couture pieces come tight-fitting as in Versace collection. Instead, Gaytten focuses on full skirts, pleated sleeves, and smart drapery.
Floor-length gowns, especially dark purple ones, are definitely future red carpet choices (for a variety of glam events) while the sumptuous ballgowns (the red one is impressive!) will become hits at more important occasions like the Oscars.
What I would also like to mention here is the gloves – long and fab. They will be a great accessory to add to any fashionista’s wardrobe.
