A Comparison: Dior Then & Now
Left- Christian Dior Spring 2005 runway final look by John Galliano. Right- Christian Dior Spring 2015 runway final look by Raf Simons.
Galliano used to put on SHOWS. He’d make his models these larger-than-life, aspirational, glamorous walking art pieces that captured the imagination immediately. I wanted to know who these women were and what made them who they were. I cared about their stories. Now… I couldn’t give any less of a crap. Nothing against Simons, he’s good at what he does. But I’m not particularly interested in what he does. I miss the days of Dior Extravagance and Showmanship. Now it’s just minimalism. Basic minimalism as far as the eye can see… #spareme #longlivegalliano
