Paris dreamed for a night with Dior
At the Grand Palais Galleries, exactly 100 years after the birth of the most influential French designer, Christian Dior, the British John Galliano created moments of flavor in an anniversary show, worthy of note.
The spring-summer 2006 collection of those who recreated elegance at Casa Dior was this time a triumph of the imagination.
After thematically approaching Russia, the Himalayas, the Incas Empire, Africa, Hollywood and the French Revolution, John Galliano provoked the audience in Paris with a sensual collection whose theme was nude. In the alert rhythm of the drums, the mannequins appeared on the podium behind a huge mirror wearing transparent, skin-colored, vaporous dresses, caught in black strings.
The materials chosen by Galliano for this collection were the siphon, silk and tulle, all combined with leather straps. The dresses were paired with leather jackets with colored hem. The light show that accompanied the presentation was perfectly in line with the shades chosen by the British designer for the dresses worn by mannequins. Thus, near the end of the presentation, the models paraded in dresses in warm shades of pink, green or yellow.
They also liked the transparent silk shirts worn with trousers and matched with vests, bags and leather bags. As he himself confessed, Galliano respected all the characteristics of the Dior style, to which he always adds a hem, a lace, something extra, which gives the brand specific elegance.
"It was fantastic, dramatic and very sexy," said actress Rachel Weisz, present at the show at the Grand Palais. "I liked how it all started from the nude, without too much color. Very sexy. Galliano is my favorite," added Basic Instinct star Sharon Stone, who is also the new image of the Dior house. It was definitely a new look for the designer of the Dior house, rightly called "the wild child of British fashion".
In Paris, Galliano's anniversary presentation brought the Dior woman to the podium: raised shoulders, hourglass silhouettes, wide skirts and deep splits, barely covered, for perfect bodies.
Another collection expected in Paris is that of the Yves Saint Laurent House. After the death of Christian Dior, the brand continued to exist in the creations of Yves Saint Laurent, John Galliano, Marc-Bohan and Gianfranco Ferre.
Following are the spring-summer 2006 collections of designers Christian Lacroix, Chanel, Alexander McQueen and Jean Paul Gautier, whose clothes are inspired by the shirts worn by women in Romania and Ukraine.
