Somewhat understandably given recent goings on at the Paris fashion house, Bill Gaytten's Fall 2011 Haute Couture collection for Christian Dior was a bit of a mish mash of styles and colours pillaged from across the decades which, whilst not hanging together well as a collection for me, demonstrated some flashes of absolute brilliance.
Who would have thought of elevating 1990's leisurewear patterns to the ultimate luxe level?
Fresh, fitted and fun to relaxed glamour and dreamily flirty, the colour palette ran the spectrum from ice cream parlour pastels to earthy autumnal riches with hints of metallics.
Apparently Mr. Gaytten has not actually been confirmed as John Galliano's permanent replacement - hopefully this is enough to get him through to the next round at least - I want to see MOREMOREMORE from him!
