A Blast from the Dior Past

One of my favourite retro inspired collections was the Galliano for Dior Spring/Summer 11 Haute Couture Collection. He was inspired by René Gruau a famous illustrator from the 40’s who created some of the House of Diors most iconic images. The collection screams 40’s/50’s glamour and the entire show looks extremely theatrical with exaggerated gestures from the models. It is reminiscent of the romantic 1950’s housewife juxtaposed with a femme fatale dark streak. This cheeky collection included cinched in waists with alligator belts, a-line skirts, origami style folds within outfits, pencil skirts, gorgeous shoes and fabulous red lipstick. Completely unwearable but isn’t that the point of couture ;)
