Paris Fashion Week. The Dior Ready-To-Wear Collection

The Dior team  headed up by Galliano’s former right-hand man Bill Gaytten for now, until the long awaited announcement of who will step into John Galliano‘s boots.

This was 50’s glamour; using textures of tweed, leather, lace, organza and chiffon. Leather – as seen in the red sleeveless tops and jackets over tailored trousers that stopped short of the ankle to show off chain-embellished heels. Organza skirts – very seductive.

Mosaic, patterns in neutral tones.

The eveningwear was almost nymph like with romantic undertones. Red
chiffon party dresses, vertical ruffles of light nude wool that skimmed the
body. Gowns of pale green, black and white or nude with lace under layers beneath multiple layers of chiffon, flowing and billowing down the catwalk.

It was said to be a very safe collection. It certainly did not resemble the Galliano flambouyant style, that was his trade mark. The nearest it came were the sheer gowns leaving little to the imagination.

A little ‘cheeky’ a rear view of Karlie Kloss as she closed the Dior show.

There was no standing ovation, no benches collapsing or no estatic clapping of approval from the front row A listers. But in my opinion the collection was femine and beautifully tailored.

So, we wait in anticipation the views of the paparazzi and fashion editors.
