As a strong fan of John Galliano, I a deeply unsettled about the new designer in the house. The collections is apparently intentionally toned down. There is certainly not this kind of an issue with regard to designer characters here, charming dresses and lots of elegance. But seems to be the powerful strength, and stregth had taken out from Galliano had disappeared into fine air overnight.
It is extremely sad to see with all these years, what Galliano had nurtured and learned, is being erased at once. One might argued that the consumers are longing for a little something stylish. But do they? They can go to Valentino for that. One might say the old well-balanced for the original Dior can come back and spend some profit online now. After all that noisy style is not there. Regardless of how you consider it, the recent selection had search out the archive, and just factually copied all the look there is.
Keep an eye this check coat on the right, um it’s literally like this coat shu pei is wearing here. How about this bustier dress? Except that it’s a more risque design, there is hardly any difference to me at this point. Some may argued that When John Galliano was in power, he did a lot of collection that was a note from the past. But yet he does with tongue in cheek. It was blatantly recommendation to the past, so you can have a high regard for his showmanship. Yes it could be a similar look, but it is done with so much other research reference in addition it, the impression tend to be like a vintage came from a space ship. What we see here, the design team Bill Gaytten leads looks like they had worked for Valentino.
I am also a big fan of Valentino, they have integrity, since he is adamant in timeless attractiveness in women, he would come up with somewhat, masterful dresses for the ladies who lunches year after year. Hats off to the master, it must take a lot of courage to believe in something you love, regardless the fashion.
My final word is, I am mourning for John Galliano, Dior would never be the same. Like the day when Tom Ford step down, Gucci had never been the same. These statues like designers are like star dust. Rare and mesmerising. Here is a very informative article with what all the others thinks about the show.
