Christian Dior Haute Couture Autumn Winter 2011

Most of you have probably read the bad reviews of this Christian Dior Haute Couture show, they were unavoidable. But I don’t think they were completely justified. I’ll agree that there was too much going on, but there were some beautiful pieces in the show and I think the negative reviews came more from the fact that John Galliano wasn’t taking a bow. I didn’t like all the kaftan pieces (well, I liked them, but they didn’t feel couture) however there was all of the expected Dior fantasy, amazing construction and dramatic shapes at the beginning of the show. Maybe just a bit too much of it. But no one wears a whole couture collection at the same time, and individually there are some stunning pieces.

I love…

a dress that does not look couture, it looks Diane Von Furstenberg.

too many of these kaftan style dresses. They are beautiful, but not very Dior.

    There are some nice pieces. Just not cohesive enough as a collection.
