Bill Gaytten is the new creative director of Christian Dior, and we can definitely see that ”things have changed” since John Galliano’s fall-out. Instead of a very extravagant collection, we have classic silhouettes and a Parisian style. Interesting collars and lots of skinny belts, accentuating the feminine body and its curves. Through out the collection, we can see the amount of fabrics used, from silk, tulle and lace to leather.
I personally loved it and thought it was so PRETTY. It’s full of pretty dresses, coats and even hats. I really like this 50’s ‘lady-like’ vibe designers have been showing in the runways. It’s good to see completely different things, like Christian Dior and Dsquared2’s Spring 2012 RTW. Like Olivia Palermo said ”I’m happy people are getting dressed again!”.
When it was announced that Cristophe Decarnin was leaving the french fashion house Balmain, everyone’s question was who would be the label’s new creative director, and would they be able to maintain the amazing rocker-chic vibe that Decarnin passed on for the last five years?
Olivier Rousteing, 25, showed us a lot of gold, a lot of baby blue and a lot of black & white. He did an amazing job in his first runway show. He kept the label’s signature look with the short, form fitting dresses. Impeccable two piece’s and beautiful prints. Rousteing decided to say goodbye to the brand’s more ”trashy” side, giving his own spin off to it. My favourite thing about Balmain was exactly its punk-rockish factor, but for Olivier’s first runway collection, he did a pretty good job.
