Christian Dior Spring2008 Review
When the fashion world gets a little hype, who can bless them all with quirks other than John Galliano? Seriously, that man can pull pieces together that is way beyond our imaginations. His Ready-to-Wears are not exactly wearable. More likely just to be adorned from the front seats of the fashion show or to be drooled over by peasants on Style.com. Yet, however, we give our hats off to Galliano for his unique sense of style.
This season, JG (Our pet name of affection, shall we?) turned his extraordinary radar down ... almost three notches. All we can say for this collection is we L O V E it! The uber classic 1930s men style for the ladies. This includes trench coats, pinstriped tailored trousers, fedora hats and blazers, in black and white - to capture the old-fashioned movie epic.
It slowly brings us to the leopard batch where that symbol of older days lux were imprinted on coats and hats. Of course, it has to be just the fabric. Not the real deal, otherwise picket fences will start parading in JG's next fashion show ... Right?
The show ended slowly with the elegance of the 1930s femme of long gowns and lingerie look-alike dresses. Silk, "newspaper boy" caps, fedoras and the use of another fur coat accessorized those lovelies for their best.
So there you have it. A review of Christian Dior's Spring 2008 Collection, masterminded by John Galliano.
