Christian Dior SS10 Collection: fashion from retrospective.

The new SS’10 fashion collection from Christian Dior is taking us way back to the 40′s, though wisely revised by Dior’s fashion designer John Galliano. Most of the dresses and skirts this spring collection includes, are lingerie-like, with lots of sheer chiffon, satin and lace.We can see somewhat masculine satin jackets worn with feather-light chiffon skirts, the general mood of the collection is rather mature and self-confident elegance.

The central piece of new Christian Dior collection was a long satin dress, worn with extremely high heels and lingerie exposed; it looked gorgeous on Thana Khunen, the 18 year old model from Brazil. Red lipstick on most of the models added to the general retro look of Dior’s femme fatale. Other colors present for both dresses and jackets were silver, black, pink and purple.

 

Giorgio Armani Collection

Giorgio Armani collections are always gorgeous, and the newly presented Spring’10 one is not an exception. Though the designer was sick for a while, he has succeeded not only to finish the collection, but also to fill it with juicy happiness, as every spring collection should be.

Lots of silk and lots of marine blue and green combined in all possible ways, some red, pink and gray made a nice mix. All the Armani dresses and skirts were above the knee, often featuring asymmetry on the top. The collection did not include a lot of pants, though those that were present, were very loose, silky and somewhat short.

Unlike the collections of other designers this year, Armani models wore flat shoes, sometimes sandals, and the whole collection was noted for a free vacation mood.
