Structure, surface and feminine silhouette are cultivated at the house of Dior for Fall/Winter 2011-12 to capture the spirit of la Rose Moderne.
Architectural exactitude inspires new cut and construction to bloom, as fabric techniques are innovated by the studio to create an elegant new Haute Couture. Ettore Sottsass inspires a bold pastel palette combined with graphic black and white.
Dior roses mix delicate petals in pleats, prints and folds of taffetas with light gazar waves and triple layer organzas with leather appliqué. Crisp clean lines contrast with a raw, hand cut finish while tutti-frutti embroideries pollinate colour. Leather and plastic embroideries bounce high gloss into newly draped techniques.
Frank Gehry inspires shimmering soft metallics with glass sequins, neutrals and a new Dior rose. Modern waves are constructed in light mille feuille forms of natural beauty, frayed iridescent lamé and muted taffetas. Metallic embroidery, circular layering and light deconstruction twist a new Dior Gehry rose of pure elegance.
Jean-Michel Frank and Jean Dunand inspire wood and malachite prints with sequins. Soft cylindrical columns in the Deco spirit capture the skill and glamour of creation as luxury, cut and movement showcase this contemporary new wave couture.
Marc Bohan inspires multi-coloured rose petals on hand-painted chiffons, while intricate hand-pleated pieces feature a modern-day homage to Murano glass in a rich bouquet of artistry and beauty that defines the skill of the house.
Jean-Paul Goude inspires a night at ‘Le Palace’, as Dior roses dance in a wild celebration of metallic streamers, colour and embroidery strewn over innovatively pleated gowns. Refined craftsmanship ensures that Dior tradition fuses with the future as raw cut, bold technique, and Dior Haute Couture makes a glamourous statement for Fall Winter roses.
