Well, it started out kinda cool with that demonic looking black and red, then the lights go up, the colors become sissified and on with the Barbie gowns we go. Had John actually followed through with the dark, moody Gruau inspired eroticism that he opened the show with this might actually have been less boring than usual, but then it wouldn't be a Dior collection without pastels and frou.
At this point I'm not even seeing a change in the techniques that are being applied to the clothes. I mean he's done the shaded tulle overlay before. He's done the artistic brushstroke embroidery before. Would it kill someone in that atelier to show us something we haven't already seen?
Meanwhile if John's imagination hadn't stagnated years ago he might have thought to tie in the graphic black and red from Gruau to the graphic palette used by Serge Lutens when he was working at Dior cosmetics and done something interesting for a change.
You need to move fashion forward when there's a reason to move fashion forward
