Dior Coulture

dior-couture3.jpgJohn Galliano’s Spring Dior Coulture is too amazing for words, he is a genius. Inspired, he said, “by Pinkerton’s affair with Cio-Cio San, Madame Butterfly”—reconfirmed his unique talent to evoke beauty, sensitivity, narrative, and emotion in a fashion show. Kimonos, obis, and geisha makeup were Dior-ified, transformed into delicate translations of New Look peplum suits and full-skirted dance dresses. Each look sprouted yet more miraculous planes of origami folding, their stiff geometries creating necklines like flowers or hovering birds. Every dress had an intense color and character of its own; a hot pink, an eau-de-nil with coral, cascading shades of burgundy and imperial purple. Some were painted, others sculpted from curviform furls of woven straw.

  1. I myself, if I had the riches to own every dress there,
    would sit an sip tea in one gown, then sitch to the next one for painting… Then I would do like our local nutty lady, I would walk up and down the streets in one of the fanciest of all gowns, with a little bo-peep umbrella. Ps: If you ventured into my little village you would see this scene every single day, I promise, in real life. She is quite intersting, no matter how nutty, and she owns a huge huge huge array of gowns that would blow your mind. Okay sorry, I went off the subject.

  2. These are really wonderful! I love it when one can see exactly where a designers inspiration came from, but yet its different than what we may have expected! Delightful!!!
