I am sharing with you photos of dresses from the latest couture collection from Christian Dior. Usually I idly look through the photos from the shows, but then I wanted to stop, examine, mentally try on myself.
The show coincided (or was it timed?) To the 70th anniversary of the fashion house, and old sketches, photographs and ideas created during the life of the couturier were used to create models.
I do not really like it when the image of a muslin young lady is obtained. It's also not very exciting to look at the abundance of androgynous and asexual on the catwalks. But it is extremely attractive when it turns out to combine femininity and strength. Which is very cool in these models.
The image of each model, be it a casual dress, a coat or an evening outfit, is complemented by a leather strap. Half of the models are wearing leather broggs and hats.
Lots of different collars and patch pockets.
Feminine silhouette and masculine accessories and cut details.
Embroidery and fringe. Incredibly feminine, bohemian, relaxed, luxurious and expensive.
Thick wool and flying translucent fabrics in one look.
And a lot of options for a coat to the floor.
Tested on myself this and last fall: a long coat is an incredible thing. And you feel so magical, the image is immediately expensive, beautiful, feminine, and just warm in this (about 5-7 degrees in minus, you can safely add such a coat if it is not knee-deep, but mid-calf and below).
And even an evening dress is woolen. Absolutely evening, made of absolutely suiting fabric.
My favorite gray color was presented in all possible shades and occupied the vast majority of the catwalk.
A couple of bright spots of color.
Flying chiffons, ruffles and frills are our favorite dusty powdery colors.
A little more silk, chiffon and velvet. And a summer coat. I also can't imagine how we used to live without them.
