Isn’t it funny how some people go from rags to riches and some from riches to never having existet? Well, that is actually just something I have been thinking about while sitting on my bed, enjoying the coole breeze outside my cozy four walls, suffering a bit from fever and writing my bachelor thesis – which should be finished in exactly one week.
Nevertheless, as an official Dior fan I came across the new Resort 2011 Womenswear Collection which has been presented in an exclusive and tremendous fashion metropolis – Shanghai for the first time in Dior history. John Galliano’s creations are some kind of hommage to the Lolita, the Grand Dame and the Dandy, all in one show and one collection, which seems to be quite a lot for one show – if you ask me.
Usually I am quite fond of everything the genius himself creates, but considering this collection I have to say, that I am quite disappointed, because in my point of view all those clothes do not fit together. They do not tell those marvelous stories of visions and colors and love for fashion – right now all I can see are colors without a scheme, designs without a scheme and a collection without an actual concept.
All you could see have been marine stripes meeting candy colors – gamine trenches meeting fedoras teamed with tapering and all in all there still is me feeling that it just did not fit at all. The only thing that took me have been those beautiful Dior Haute Couture dresses.
Well – thinking about the conclusion on this piece here I just have to say, that one shot gone bad is truly acceptable and that my love for all the Dior in this world did not sink in – though I hope and wish that for the next show monsieur Galliano will come up with something better or else the house of Dior should be thinking about a change.
P.S.: Btw – talking about Dior and before about the Lady Dior bag I have to show you a picture of Sex and the City 2 – Charlotte York-Goldenblatt wearing the hot pink version of Lady Dior.
