Back to fashion world, can you believe on the Christian Dior Fall/Winter Haute Couture Show, I read the review of Mr.Tim Blanks, I say I agree on your points on the collection, it's positive but where are the negative of the collection. Despites from sorry that John Galliano is no longer at Dior but, his collection is the worst collection of this finest French Designer House.
Here comes my points of view:
- The collection is lack of creativity - what is it ? cotton ball theme or a circus ?, the whole entire collection didn't come together, they are here and there. Where is the consistency? And last I called 'Disastrous. A carnival without a theme'
- Craftsmanship - wow, Mr. Bill Gaytten, I have and never heard of you or you might never heard of me, but when I google, my name does come up and yours, just the recent couture collection. That's not the point I want to approach here. GRR... you have the whole entire House of Dior, and the technique and pattern cutting is so last seasons, old pattern, old tricks, poor patch-works. I wish I have this team for one season, just give me one season and I'll show you what I can delivery. Pieces coming down of the runway looking like graduate collection, worse than my last ex Boy Friend's graduated collection in 2006.
- Brand Loyalty & Royalty - Is it still Dior ? or is it turning into a young, new avant grade designer brand? Also, there were some reports few days ago, and guess what Mr. Alexander Wang brought up and compared together with Marc Jacob, Raf Simon etc... for the creative position of Christian Dior ? oh please, and come on please. On the other hand, my ideal candidate for Creative Director for Dior is Mr. Christian Lacroix. I love his romanticism, the hint of poignant and emotionally fraught through out every pieces that he designed. And Lacroix's design are most restrained and approachable, and I felt so sad before when the fall couture 2009 was his last. He is born and raised in France, his understand about the art of fashion, the grace of women, and the way he makes clothes is unparalleled risking and effortless beauty.
That's all for now, so please if any of LVMH reading this, take a consideration for Mr. Lacroix.
Now, I am back making my Cambodian Style Noodles, and watch for the hurricane coming in!
