Mysterious Dior!

Inspired by Christian Dior's Spring Summer 2010 Ready-To-Wear Womenswear collection!

Dior girl on the run
In a silver lamé trench coat to stun
Sparkling diamonds in her bun
Pursued by a gangster's gun

She hears a faint knock on her door
Leaps off her bed to avoid terrible gore
No time to dress and adore
Slips into her underwear on the floor
And deftly escapes before
Things turn really sour!

Only baby dolls and negligees cover her modesty
Onlookers gape wide at her audacity
No time for outerwear she says in honesty
Dior girl's frail femininity
And robust vanity
Never fails to impress in enormity!


Creator: John Galliano

Event: Spring Summer 2010 Ready-To-Wear Womenswear
Date Held: Oct 2nd, 2009
Place: Espace Ephémère Tuileries - Jardin des Tuileries – Paris 1er

Designer(John Galliano) Speak:

I discovered this wonderful image of Lauren Bacall, a loyal Dior client, and Humphrey Bogart on an Avenue Montaigne terrace, and I took it from there

She was a regular client of M. Dior and I loved the idea of taking that 1940s Hollywood glamour and making it more contemporary. And I liked the idea of the link between film as an illusion and the illusion of undressed dresses

I wanted very femme fatale, a strong woman with a lot of independence, a heart breaker

semi-dressed allure

Critics Say:

Disrobing was Dior’s biggest story today.”( UK)

It’s just that this season the look isn’t special enough.” (The New York Times)

The message at Christian Dior this afternoon was very definitely taken straight from the underwear drawer.(The Daily Telegraph)

For all its delicacy, and prettiness, was there a single idea that took fashion — or Dior — forward?Everything seemed like a reworking of early Galliano collections under his own name, but now with all the finesse and studio support that he has from Dior. (International Herald Tribune)

Why limit yourself to a movie when you can access the living wardrobe? (Financial Times)
