The models walked down the catwalk to the tune of Lana Del Rey’s Video Games in a predominantly monochrome, slightly minimalist collection, which is a far cry from what Christian Dior Haute Couture usually has in store for us.
Yes, it was different to what we’re used to, but the collection couldn’t really be faulted, so we commend acting creative director Bill Gaytten for his fine efforts. It takes a brave man to step into John Galliano’s shoes, and considering he had the weight of the world (or Dior, at least) on his shoulders, we don’t think he cracked under the pressure. In fact, we think his collections get better and more evolved every season, so he must be doing something right.
“It’s meant to be x-ray Dior, ” Bill Gaytten said after the show. “All the structure of iconic Dior, thanks to lots of fittings, but all of it see-through. I haven’t slept for weeks… it’s been a lot of waking up at 3 am.”
The collection was comprised of sheer fabrics, full skirts and cinched waists and was generally a dramatic but understated display.
