Haute Couture: Christian Dior Fall 2017

Haute Couture: Christian Dior Fall 2017

I loved John Galliano at Dior, Raf Simons too, but Maria Grazia Chiuri … I’m feeling big love, like the first time all over again 🖤

In fairness, each designer is of their time and I really wouldn’t be able to call a favourite though I do take special delight from the ‘she’s a woman, yay’ vibe that is, clearly, all about Maria – looking good in her own designs, last image below.

Would that I was able to get across to Les Arts Decoratifs, in Paris, to see the, just opened, exhibition celebrating 70 years of Dior, 5 July 2017 to 7 January 2018, including work by all three of the aforementioned plus the other, great, past Dior designers: Christian Dior, Couturier Du Reve.

However, failing that, just looking through the stills from the Christian Dior Fall 2017 Haute Couture collection makes me feel happy.

There’s just so much to admire in the reference to Dior history but entirely 21st century contemporary line in design, the beautiful fabrics, sophisticated colour palate and, most of all, the form-flattering wearability of everything.

The image above is everything I admire in style – beautiful, easy, comfortable and stunning. Nothing about passing fashion trend: all about looking fabulous, whenever, wherever.

Whilst I’m often wowed mostly by exquisite, less than useful, ball gowns, this collection was, for me, at its’ best in the daywear – stunning jackets, coats, collars and skirts.

Just gorgeous 💋
