Christian Dior | Fall 2009 Couture

For the Christian Dior Fall 2009 Couture show John Galliano took it back to 1947, when the New Look arrived as a welcome and extravagant change from the more restrained fashion of wartime rationing.  Galliano claims to have been inspired by images of Dior working on the New Look in his maison and used said point of reference to create a smaller scale collection and more reserved runway show than people have come to expect.

We are of the belief that contradictions make for interesting design, and this show, which mixes the old (corseted waists, voluminous sleeves) and the new (intense, saturated colors) does not disappoint.  As usual, a smattering of our favorite looks…

New York magazine has a highlight reel of the show that you can view here.
