Paris Fashion Week: At Christian Dior, John Galliano phones it in
At Dior, John Galliano seems to be in a creative rut, slapping a hokey new theme on old clothes season after season.
For fall, he went with libertine equestrian, which added jodhpurs and kinky thigh-high boots to the usual mix of checked coats, hourglass-shaped jackets, bias-cut silk dresses and lacy underthings.
Much of it was forgettable.
Galliano seems to be stuck in the past, unaware that in this most wired era of all time, women don't want style dictated to them by a designer standing on a pedestal. They want to make the connections themselves.
