Dior pre-fall 2017



Holy crap on a cracker!! What can one say? Apparently all the noise about this woman going to Dior was all noise as she apparently brought along a lot of the Valentino esthetic and sensibility and none of the brilliant reputation fostered before her tenure at either brand. What comes to mind is WHAT WERE YOU THINKING?

Quite simply, the clothes are either unappealing or horribly retro (think Carnaby Street)   or worse yet boring (think Gloria Sachs) and lastly just plain ugly. The blatantly apparent references to Hedi are inexcusable as are the absurd silhouettes coupled with all the sheerness.  I don’t foresee a stampede to the Dior shops come July. And then of course none of this aided by the styling which apparently only bolsters the collection’s lack of appeal for a real Dior client ... if any still exist at this point.

The mind boggles and the fawners will fawn and handbags, makeup and shoes will outsell all of it   .. as Clara Peller once said… “Where’s the beef?” AND JUST AS AN FYI,   Maria has already drowned or gotten drunk on the Kool Aid of her own words!
