The doors have opened for Paris Fashion Week Spring 2011 Couture season and we’re already swooning with excitement. So far, from what I have seen at my desk on Style.com, Galliano has struck a goldmine with his collection for Christian Dior.
The collection looks back to the “New Look” and upholds a lady like demeanor fit for a queen. The models seem to be statues of socialite elegance strutting down the runway in the fullest skirts ever seen and wrapped in gowns containing enough fabric for all of Paris to fit under.
The color story isn’t too sophisticated and if it weren’t for the pale blue that seems to have been misted over some of the garments I would even venture to say that it was quite boring!
What seems to hold this collection together is the stoic and timeless elegance of the “Dior” woman. Galiano knows who his customers are and this collection will offer them some great red carpet, gala worthy pieces to choose from.
