John Galliano for Dior ... inspiring collection
John Galliano, designer for Christian Dior, got a lot of help with his haute couture fall show in Paris. His inspiration was photos of an earlier generation of models. He happened upon archive photos featuring Monsieur Dior with a group of his favorite models in various sages of undress, according to The Daily Fix.
“We even discovered an image of Marlene Dietrich in a tuxedo with suspender straps attached to the bottom, the better to keep the jacket perfectly tight. Once I saw that, I was flying,” laughed Galliano, dressed in dark Brioni three-piece suit.
The result was a spectacular show staged in the upstairs salon of Dior’s classic headquarters on avenue Montaigne, where half the models appeared in tights with underwear, knickers, panties, straps or corsets in flesh tones or polkadots. Worn with a series of boleros, trench-dresses and reefer jackets, the overall look was sinfully racy, said The Daily Fix.
Galliano also enjoyed a great assist from hatter Stephen Jones, who created enormous bow-tie hats and feathered numbers.
