Christian Dior Autumn Winter 2011

Sorry for the lack of posts people! We have been busy with NAFFEM. More on that in the days to follow!

Despite what some may have to say about John Galliano, there is no arguing the fact that the man is a brilliant designer. The Dior Autumn Winter collection was a testament to his incredible vision and talent, and he will be missed by many in the coming seasons. (For those not in the know, go here to read the full Galliano story.)

This collection was all about texture. Feathers, fur, tweed, and chiffon were all layered together to create beautiful looks. Each piece on its own is unique and completely ready-to-wear, but the styling and layering of the garments are what bring this collection together on the catwalk.

Two completely different, yet cohesive looks.

This two-toned coat looks fantastic with knee high boots.

This fur scarf paired with a green tweed trench-style coat is a perfect example of impeccable styling. And those earrings! A great little addition to a beautiful coat.

Have you ever seen so many dissimilar textures work together so well?

This one is my favourite! Had to include a detailed shot of the thin, delicate layers of chiffon inbetween the layers of fur. So beautiful!
