the collection is lovely but it lacks excitement and that show-stopper pieces. And the palette itself is pretty yawn.

Those shoes looks wildly uncomfortable, even if they weren't too small for the models!

Nothing special here.

I think another thing that needs to be pointed out here is the fact that this is essentially a winter collection; what with the palette and quite a few dresses being made entirely of leather.
It seems that some sheer dresses (which, to be honest, appeared in every Galliano collection towards the end) and sleeves cropped just below the elbow on every jacket are the only points that makes this a spring show.
I'd also like to mention how awfully hard the models were instructed to 'fierce'-up the looks, as with Olde Dior collections, though it seems quite ridiculous when all the model has to work with is a plain bar-jacket and a tulle skirt. In fact, the whole show was reminiscent of the mid-noughties collection.
Compare: Dior F/W 03-04

This feels very appropriate for Dior, though it would be nice to see a little more flamboyance - such was the case under Galliano. Galliano has developed the brand into a dreamy, eccentric fashion house, with a unique vision of femininity. I just don't see any of the theatrics in the collection, which is a pity. But it certainly isn't a disaster collection as some have said.

Today I was in a big bookstore and found Roxanne Lowit's Backstage Dior book, which is backstage moments from every John Galliano for Dior show. I was quite emotional seeing all these iconic clothes and models amd I realised that this era is officially over, giving it's place to a stale and old-fashioned Dior. This collection might be tasteful and commercial, but it looks like it could be a high-street brand's expensive line. Not only it lacks Galliano's wow factor, but also the techniques and fabrics used look really cheap. I just have to accept that if this going to be Dior from now on, I'll have to abandon the brand that made me fall in love with fashion.

You can definitely see this new dude really put a lot of efforts to make it "DIOR", but it looks like a mix of Jason Wu, Alberta Ferreti, a tiny bit of Valentino and even tinnier bit of Dior. IDK, this man needs some time. Or Dior needs Galliano back

I guess the only good thing about collection is that Dior is now your one stop shopping time saver. You can buy the whole entire collection in one store and the rest of the world would probably think you went to several stores and bought some Versace shoes, a few Jason Wu, Valentino, Miu miu etc.

These are horrible frocks, but then Galliano was doing just marginally better for the recent collections.
