I’m finding it really difficult to convey how let down I feel by Dior Couture this season. The last few collections weren’t Galliano’s strongest but without him at the helm it has all come undone. The Dior show was always the highlight of couture week for me, it was the show that raised the bar and gave me goosebumps. My desktop background is an homage to past couture collections. Dior, especially the couture house, without Galliano was always going to be a difficult concept to grasp but the collection they have just shown in Paris can only be described as an eyesore and I am beyond disappointed. The collection has elements of Galliano (although the inspiration is said to be Marc Bohan) and has some sort tiny glimmers of promise but the execution is just terrible. There’s no cohesive vision and though there is some experimentation, it lacks Galliano’s finesse and polish. This is not couture, it’s a bad resort collection at best. The sumptuous luxury has gone and has been replaced by a garish mess.
