I was thinking the exact same thing, first new Valentino based on the first look, but the later pieces are too vibrant.

The pieces seem a bit too "lose" for Dior but the "cleanness" or how they're put together are rather Dior-ish....

I agree. Furthermore, Dior doesn't need to be OTT most of the time in order to be considered high fashion.

Everyone misses Galliano's aesthetic and so do I (One of my favorite designers of all time.) However, Dior isn't just Galliano and vice versa.

this is clearly a last minute collection that was not put together thoughtfully or creative. Looks like a Chic Target collection

if this is going to be Dior for next couple seasons, I think I still want Galliano at the house.

I won't judge anything until the main collection has arrived so this one doesn't count even it was a bit disappointment.

I think it is pretty. But aside from the fact that the materials are probably very high quality and expensive, the design is non descript. And they do remind me of Dior prior to Galliano in the 80's...I don't think that's a good thing.

wow this is very ugly, i'd probably rather have john's horrible pastels mess than this. and i thought it was said that both the resort and couture collection were going to be designed by the atelier under the guidance of soledano?

I really don't like this collection- especially the necklace-dress combo.

I agree, there's no fantasy or eccentricity in this collection. It's way too clean for me, considering this is Dior. I think they made ok clothes but if they decided to do the collection without a creative director they should have at least tried to stay in the same lines that have made Dior so successful these last years...

Alright so to be honest I never was a huge fan of Galliano for Dior, but now that he's gone everything gets worse.
The colors, the accessories, the shoes and the clothes themselves... all of it is awful and doesn't match. Seriously what is that white thing on the models arm in the last shot?!? A plaster or what?
I hope they'll come up with something not as chaotic as this...

i don't love it, but i do like afew pieces and i do like the Sandals and the Dark Pink Bag in post #10.
