Dior Fall 2011 Couture | Paris Haute Couture

Inspired Dior – Marking the first haute couture collection not designed by John Galliano in fifteen years, Dior unveiled its fall 2011 couture garments at the Musée Rodin today. The design team, led by Bill Gaytten and his assistant Susanna Venega, was inspired by former Dior designer Marc Bohan’s creations. Juxtaposing whimsical prints and vibrant hues, the collection hit a number of references from Dior archives to bohemian chic in the form of floor length dresses.

      I know!!! It looks like childs play, I bet the Bosses at dior would see their mistake in firing John. If they hire this guy, it would be the worst mistake ever.

    it’s kind of like they are trying to keep it a little Galliano-y but it’s kind of heinous. I don’t know, it’s like buying knock off Dior earrings that are spelled Diur or something……

    I can’t believe that this is Dior :/ Some looks are great, but for the most part it’s not worthy a great house like Dior.

    You can definitely see the 60s/70s influence in the geometric shapes and flowing maxi dresses. 

    And I understand wanting to have it sort of mesh with the kind of stuff Galliano has been doing at Dior, while at the same time making it obvious that Dior is being headed up by a new design team. The stuff at the beginning, with the geometric hair accessories looks rather lovely. But the evening gowns are shapeless and don’t the lunar headpieces make no sense with the rest of the collection.

    it’s like someone barfed up a ton of colors onto this collection. John Galliano is going to be hard to top!

    The only good thing about this is the selection of models.

    Only thing that I love: Karlie Kloss closing the end. At least they haven’t change that. This is just an feeble attempt at trying to be Galliano’s style.

    It just looks too gimmicky and not in the classy manner like Galliano did. Seems like a very hard attempt at trying to Diorify it. But too cocoony + the cheap structure and layers= ew.

    This is the Post-Galliano Dior
    Horrible , as the  John Galliano brand

    No one can say that this isn’t Dior , because it is Dior , but is just not a dreamy and theatrical Dior that we all are used to
    Hope this isn’t the new designer , cause that would disastrous for Dior , i can see clients running away from this
    cheap and ugly Dior, this is an haute couture show and it looks like a R-T-W show !

    Just ugly

    Overall a shock to ones’ sensibilities, mostly ghastly – the only part of it which goes near working is the theme “a homage to John Galliano”! and pretty well the only dresses that work are the attempts at creating the Galliano touch.
    Of course it is nice having Karlie close, but then who else can do it, her catwalk genius is not to be scoffed at but it can’t save this Dior shemozzle.

    Again the question of morals, social responsibility the place of the artist in our society, the relevance of personal failings, the complicity of the owners in driving Galliano to breakdown are all thrown into the foreground.

    Galliano would not be the first artist to hold repulsive views, but does he even hold them?, unlike a Wagner or the like those views do not seem evident in his actual history.

    Karlie is the best thing to happen to THIS Dior show, she worked it, and made the dress seem a little better that it is. Love her, she’s a beauty!

    it’s like a strange, loud, postmodern slap in the face compared to past Dior collections. It is a shame but I also did not have high expectations for this one when the house is in such a confused and unstable place. This collection reflects the state of the house.

    Hey, there’s no need to think about these garments. One glance and you know they are hideous!

    They totally need to re-hire Galliano if they want Dior to succeed
    cause , even when Dior was Dior before Galliano, there is no chance that Dior
    could be Dior without Galliano anymore , is just too hard to fill his shoes  
    and this is the big example .
