Paris is and will continue to be one of the ultimate cities for fashion and luxury design. This month the city experienced not only the Haute Couture Fashion Week but also an eye-catching spring collection by Christian Dior.
Dior has always had that great ability to transport viewers to fantasy environments. Where this occasion is needed to expose the most incredible crafted clothes for the wealthiest. They showed of a series of black-and-white gowns and coats in spots, stretched checks and graphic offset curves were especially striking, there was one gown with black gloves draped over the back as straps, while worn embroidered tulle skirts with the exception of several red-carpet gowns; lace column dresses, spirals of sun-ray pleated tulle ruffles. Not to forget the 1947 Bar jackets, cigarette pants and heavy-looking structural gowns. There were no bags, and only a couple of shoe styles. However, there were French phrases tattooed across the models’ collarbones.
This collection with the whole runway scene seemed surrealistic, including checkered floor tiles that were popular in the late-1940s. Dramatic white curtains draped the walls, while enormous Hitchcock-Asian birdcages and equally large white anatomical sculptures like noses, lips, and hands hung from the ceiling. This year Dior’s spring couture was a far from its recent couture extravaganzas in the grasslands and an enchanted forest.
