Loved it. I don't think one should attribute couture to theatrics since that was Galliano's vision of Dior. I loved the play on volumes, the silhouettes. Some looks could have been better but all in all, better than the designs that were done in the latter part Galliano's tenure and Gaytten's.

Where do I even begin?
First and foremost, the live-stream was utter sh**.
From what I saw, it was all "Jil Sander". A lot of the dresses did remind me if vintage dior, which I guess was the only exceptional thing.

I love how everyone's judging this collection just by watching a crappy livestream.

To all people who said Gaytten's HC collection was the worst in whole Dior history...can you really say this was better? this does not look like couture AT ALL
Then you have absolutely no idea what couture looks like.

I really liked Raf's take on Dior and on couture. Some of the pieces reminded me of 50s Dior but with a modern update. Job well done, Raf.

Lol why is everyone so surprised about the presentation? I thought it was a beautifully executed collection. And it's about time the house started from a much cleaner scratch. I died over the silhouettes like holy cow it was unreal...

it reminded me of Jil Sander, Balenciaga and the very old Christian Dior. it wasn't too experimental, it was too safe from him, but really beautiful though...

I can't believe people are actually saying Bill's Dior is better. Are you kidding me? I'd honestly rather see Raf doing Jil Sander at Dior than see Bill at Dior again.
