WITH the breath-taking A/W 2009-10 Christian Dior COUTURE Collection - John Galliano showcased & reveled in the realms of glamour the house established 60 years ago. The beautiful collection with it's typically Galliano-esque hyper-exaggerations of Dior's tight-waisted, full-skirted fifties shapes was a stand out (as always). As a starting point, it evoked some of the romantic femininity of Dior's silhouette, but with surface ruffles and bouncing crinolined hemlines that went way beyond any sense of postwar austerity to something fresh and new....
Lately, Galliano has been mining the good old U.S. of A. for raw material from which to spin his dreams and it's evident with this collection any southern belle would die over!
Who else could show gigantic overblown shapes, eye-watering color, and a whole lotta bling? Why, only John Galliano in his haute couture mode, of course. He blew vast volumes of air into multiple meters of duchesse satin, and whorled floriform shapes and swing-back swags into every passing silhouette to perfection!
Imagine Scarlet O'hara and Mrs. Robinson in Valley of the Dolls, and you more or less have the measure of Christian Dior for Fall: gigantic curled/ crimped hairdos, equally gigantic eye makeup, and the neat ladylike suits and dresses beloved of Kennedy-era America. It was a trip around what John Galliano called the "optimism and opulence" of the fifties & sixties, amped up with bright color, lashings of paillette embroidery, and tulle.
The insanely chic detailing on the looks and accessories were absolutely lustful!
This collection is for the woman who crave a straight-up injection of high-octane glamour as an antidote to gloom.
John Galliano drew on romance and delicacy for this stellar collection - with a redrawn memory of the 1947 New Look, the wasp-waisted, full-skirted silhouette that revolutionized the way women dressed after World War II. Galliano approached it through the artistic landscape that formed Dior's imagination that has changed the face of fashion as we know it!

The templates were all there: big coats, wasp waists, nipped jackets, circle skirts, tulle dance dresses, architectural gowns cut from spiraling lace and jutting scrolls of crin. Mostly framed in pinks, reds, fuschia, white, creams, animal print, Parma violet, mint, and chartreuse to follow, the shapes traced familiar silhouettes—albeit a familiarity shot through with Galliano's irrepressible touches of perversity (which I adore!).
Those color effects were ravishing -running from the palest yellow, crimson, pinks, and black, they often appeared to shade from one hue to another in the rich folds of duchesse satin skirts and the tiny-bodiced jackets sitting above them. But if the exquisitely painted ladies made a wondrous display of the arts of the Dior atelier, there was another insistent subtheme rising through the show that put Galliano's personal stamp on the collection he has been orchestrating for over a decade now...
All that richness—plus the vibrant reds, magentas, yellows, purples, creams and embellishment—meant the collection teetered on overload for the faint of heart but for true lovers of luxe like myself it was everything plus more!
Closer look at the bejeweled ruched dresses in the collection showcased Galliano's genius attention to detail.

In the end, something in the odd air of high-society fifties & sixties hauteur came over as surprisingly chic.... Bravo JG Bravo!
