DIOR, Mon 29 Sep
Colour gradations. Sheer.
Short pleated day.
Skins: python, galuchat, suede and leather.
So went the intro contained in the chic, black dossier left on everyone’s seat (along with a glam make-up kit). And just like it said on the tin, John Galliano’s latest adventure definitely had a whiff of the savanna about it, with African-inspired hairpieces and a first swathe of robes in a palette straight from a safari. The 45 glamourous looks, practically all in silk, then segued into a rainbow of delicious, acid tones : chartreuse, raspberry, pink, smoke, celadon… The first half of the show presented mini-dresses, and the second, Oscar-worthy flowing robes. A pumping soundtrack of a song by Martin Solveig ‘Everybody’ set everyone’s toes tapping.
