The prestigious fashion house Christian Dior released the first photos of its Spring 2012 couture collection on the official website. The new clothing items were also present during the fashion show which was held in Paris this week. The majority of the critics who were present at the event were delighted with the new Dior creations.
Designer Bill Gaytten, the predecessor of John Galliano at the House of Dior created an amazing vintage-glam couture collection for the upcoming spring season. He has worked for the last 16 years for Dior; therefore, it was not very difficult for him to capture the essence of the Dior brand and transpose it into the new collection.
The new collection encompasses various models that are fit for any occasion and for any personality. The majority of the dresses were made out of soft and silky materials. Jackie-O inspired dresses did not miss from the new collection. Gaytten manifested a particular interest in vintage Victorian dresses which were often displayed at the presentation.
Although there were many vintage looking designs, the modern accents were also visible at the show. The modern elements that House of Dior proposes for Spring 2012 are leather insertions and the use of sheer layers that expose the beautifully constructed garments.
Almost every single model of the show included elements of exclusive embroidery. This technique is specific for the Christian Dior brand which was always praised for its artistic craftsmanship.
Pencil skirts, A-line and Jackie-O dresses continue to be the favorite items of the warm season, a trend which is continued from the previous years. Crocodile skin and leather will be in great demand next season, according to Gaytten. The key element for a great look is to contrast tough garments like crocodile skin jackets with dresses and skirts made out of soft and sheer materials.
Celebrities will most likely queue in front of the House of Dior next year in order to get one of the Victorian-like dresses. These models left everyone speechless at the fashion presentation due to their flirty billows of tulle that caressed the floor while the models strolled down the runway. A red carpet-worthy collection, indeed!
