My favourite Galliano collection for Dior

If I was a tsarina from Imperial Russia (or, as Galliano imagined, a young lady living in an English countryside, which is almost me) I would like to be born, raised and sent away on the last day of my life wearing these clothes. 

It’s been two years since the Christian Dior Fall/Winter 2010/11 show, and I still want to touch the fabric, admire every detail, the fur, the delicate prints, silk flowers and ribbons, and the peachy soft leather. I long to feel the whisper of organza on my skin. I want to wear pearls and hear their flirty soft clinking.

I want to open my wardrobe, pick one of these gorgeous creations, the dress, the boots, the bag and all, and run outside feeling like an princess (or still that young British lady in a countryside) in a warm cloud of bliss. Totally impractical and so hopelessly romantic.

The words can’t describe how much I adore this collection. It took my breath away. It’s so me, I want to cry… As if Galliano saw my dreams, read my mind and made friends with my soul. This isn’t just love… this is a pure desire for beauty, sensuality and femininity.

  5. Little Rus, how much soul I feel in this post of yours. There are some collection that really found a special place in your heart. This is yours and I understand why, so flirty and angelic dresses at the same time. I like the short one white with small print flowers. And I am in love with the hair of the models, really, great choice!

  6. That first photo is so beautiful, I love that dress!
    And I love that 6th runway look. The coat, trousers and hat ... correction ... everything in that photo is awesome and I always have a little soft spot for leg warmers during the colder months.

  8. Natalia, each image takes my breath away. I'm so glad you posted these - they are some of my most favorite designs on the runway ever, I know what you mean about it's as if he spoke directly with your soul--when I saw his designs for the first time that's how I felt too. Hope you have a lovely weekend!
