I hate to say it, but John Galliano’s haute couture collections for Christian Dior have been a bit repetitive over the past few seasons. The clothes have always been suitably beautiful and ornate, of course, but I left the last collection unsure if I had seen anything particularly interesting or memorable. Well. That certainly wasn’t a problem I had with Christian Dior Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2010.
Perhaps it’s a result of the collection’s clear inspiration, but these completely gorgeous, pitch-perfect flower-themed dresses won’t be leaving my head any time soon. The collection is exuberant, vibrant and bold while still maintaining an obvious femininity and softness, which is a combination of characteristics that makes for utterly modern romantic dressing. Haute couture may be out of reach for nearly everyone, but here’s hoping that this aesthetic filters down the fashion ranks for the rest of us very quickly. The best looks, after the jump.
