Did Dior Dissapoint?














Did Dior's AW 2011/2012 Haute Couture show dissapoint you? With John Galliano being asked to leave, this is the first season the House of Dior's new creative directors designed and showcased their idea of what Dior was. The pastel coloured 80's style show with baby doll cuts was a bit of a shock to me. Don't get me wrong, i enjoyed it, but i have never seen a Haute Couture Dior show with such mild and weak colours. The first thing i noticed differently was the lack of 'oomph' and attitude it lacked, and Karlie Kloss not opening it, was a bit of a downfall. Did anyone else notice that there was hardly any of the models we lust to see in shows like this? The bright coloured kaftan like dresses seemed to be more like Dior was marketing a collection for Middle Eastern countries such as Dubai, not Haute Couture. Never the less, the finale gowns did not dissapoint, the extravagance and layers and of course, Karlie Kloss, brought the attitude and fierce feel the Dior oozes back to life.

i agree, it didnt have the same energy. The pastel coloursere a let down and the kaftan sresses didn't fit

It feels very rushed and haphazardly put together...

Dior is obviously missing their maestro. :)
