this is what i love about this collection: it shows that we're in a new era of galliano for christian dior. we had those early years that almost everyone in this forum looks back on with glee, then we had that middle period we have dubbed the "borehouse" years, but we've entered a new era in the past year that has plotted forth headstrong and unwavering. this stuff is no bore. it's not quite the galliano from the early aughties, but let's face it, we're not in the early aughties anymore. chanel didn't put forward the same idea decade after decade. yves saint laurent didn't dazzle us in the same way as the eras of fashion marched on. this dior feels right for the time we're in. it's still more than we're seeing from so many, but it's defiant in its dior-ness. those are quintessentially dior jackets and quintessentially dior skirts. quintessentially dior dresses. and unlike those from times past, they can translate into the real world without that much altering or reimagining.
i'm just so happy galliano has managed to find a way back to relevance that lets him still display his dazzling talent and satisfy his more conservative uppers at the house of dior.
everything is never quite enough.
