COUTURE: Dior Spring 2011
by Mikelle S
The couture shows have begun. While I didn’t cover Paris Menswear(I was waiting for video which sadly hasn’t surfaced for many shows) I have all intentions on covering some of the couture shows and what better way to start than with Grandfather Dior?
For Spring 2011(I had a slight mixup on which season we were in on Twitter), John Galliano seems to have hit his stride with the Dior Haute Couture collections. For this latest collection, he’s kept the same general silhouette, one that will fit beautifully on the new Miss Dior Cherie, Natalie Portman, in her pregnant state, while changing the color palette and experimenting with a few tweaks in materials and detailing. Opening the show with runway stomper Karlie Kloss, Galliano evokes a strong, but beautiful aesthetic for the brand including a few sheathes and even some full skirts. The show only has me anticipating the rest of the week.
