RUNWAY REPORT.....Paris RTW Fashion Week: Christian Dior A/W 2012

1
Christian Dior Pret-a-Porter Fall/Winter 2012: Dior House Designer Bill Gaytten continued his love of the iconic "Bar Jacket" and there were also references to Ballet, New Look, full A-Like skirts juxtaposed with fitted ones. Very commercial, not-style-shaking clothes. But very "Dior on Auto-Pilot". Draped and twisted tops, chiffon gowns. "The Artist"-looking 1920's-like cloche caps on the models. Colors: Mauve, rose pink, blush, nude, indigo blue, black, and hounds-tooth jacquard's. No one knows whether Gaytten is still "in it" for the long haul and if the Dior owners are still looking for Galliano's replacement (last rumor was Raf Simons was being courted for the Dior position--after he was unceremoniously booted out of Jill Sander). I've said this before: it must be very frustrating for Gaytten...however, he's probably just happy to have a job and a steady paycheck... Check out some of the looks of his latest offering for the House of Dior Ready to Wear:

With the exception with one pair of pants (which were either too long or too short), the crotch was so misplaced that the models could barely walk in them.

The dresses were ok. It was nice to see clothes that women can wear proper undergarments with.

With the exception of the long gowns, this was more ready to wear than couture.
