Christian Dior Spring 2012 Couture Collection
The House of Dior will probably never really get over the New Look, just like Chanel can never really abandon its iconic suit. Not that we would want either one of them to abandon them; there’s a reason they’ve stuck around so long. With its characteristic nipped waist, full skirt, tailored top, and yards of extra material to give it all volume, the New Look became iconic and timeless because it’s so adaptable and interpretable. With this collection, Bill Gaytten recast the iconic look using sheers and leather and re-interpreted it in jaw-dropping fantasy gowns with gigantic skirts. The result is very French, very Dior, and very chic.
