Dior’s Ready to Wear Collection for Spring

Hello gorgeous!!

I was browsing the internet when I came across the Spring ready to wear collection by Dior. It completely took me by surprise! This collection is 70’s inspired and geared more towards the millenniums, but I found some great takeaways for all ages. Are you ready?! Let’s get started.

Maria Grazia Chiuri’s  collection for Dior was inspired by all of the female artists who were never truly recognized for their brilliance. The quote ” Why are there no great women artists?” on the striped boatneck top above is in reference to just that. Worn with wide legged jeans, this is a classic look.

Overalls get a new look in leather. A striped long sleeve shirt and beret gives it a French vibe. Loving this look.

Polka dots on sheer fabrics. What is not to love about this look? Ok… other than the fact that the length is pretty short.  Imagine a colorful cami beneath this, black skinny jeans and your favorite pair of booties.  Perfect for a casual weekend.

A graphic sweater?! YES!! This whole outfit is my personal favorite. Everything here is wearable. I love the idea of layering (and I do it often). Shorts+ Blouse+ Sweater= Fabulous style!

The silhouette above is so sensual. If you’ve ever tried a pencil skirt, you know what I am talking about. For a grown up look, I would wear this skirt with a cropped cardigan. Perhaps one with some embroidery, pearls, or some other embellishment.

Another look at a graphic sweater. I like Godzilla movies and would love to get my hands on this sweater. Hello, Forever 21, do you hear me?!

I am a texture freak. I have been since I was a kid. And I love the mixture of this delicate fabric toughened up with the leather jacket. From girlie to edgy!

Wild, Wild West

Hello dolls & gents!

Today’s post is all about the exciting western style resort collection for Dior. Designer Maria Grazia Chiuri, former designer for Valentino, brought a much earthier feel to this collection.

Ms. Chiuri was inspired by primitive wall paintings found in the Lascaux cave. She discovered that  Christian Dior had also been fascinated by the cave and had collected prints inspired by the paintings.

The resort collection consisted of midi dresses and skirts,  dusters, corseted bodices, and  western hats.

The collection carried a bohemian vibe with fringed skirts. Accessories were used sparingly but deliberately via chokers, dainty beaded necklaces, and colorful bracelets.

An A line silhouette appeared on dresses with square necklines. Embroidery was used cleverly, as well as sequins, on skirts which depicted animals.

Waists were well defined and skirts were long and flowing.  Hair was tossled giving models a natural look.

What I love about this collection is the use of color.  Earth tones were prevalent in rust, tan,  and cream. I can almost feel the dessert and mountains.

I am most curious how this look will trickle down to the mass market.  Be on the lookout for western wear in the upcoming months.
