Dior Resort’18: Repetitive?

The third designer for Resort season this year is Dior. The design house held their show at the Upper Las Virgenes Canyon Open Space Preserve near Los Angeles. This was the first time Dior stepped in the US under its new management. Let’s see how the collection looked like!

This time, Dior presented a collection of utility jackets, midi dresses, and fur coats (which we really love!!). The models also walked on the packed dirt in flat boots and leather sandals. The set was the most beautiful Dior ever had. It really looked beautiful and take the whole thing to another level! It was pretty solid.

Maria Grazia used the primitive wall paintings in the Lascaux cave for the clothes. It was printed all over the dresses and even the coats. We also really like the big chunky white knitwear and the hats over all the looks, which were interesting. The clothes looked very wearable and expensive at the same time, don’t you think?

Why did we say the collection was quite repetitive? Because, well to be honest, some looks were almost literally the same from her first collection, just with different fabrication and color (look at that red dress on the right). The dresses silhouette also looked the same as her last collection: square neckline, corseted bodice. One of the things we like from this collection was the styling. We do think the collection was perfectly styled, making the repetitive silhouettes looking less boring.  So, even though it’s repetitive, we still like it a lot. This collection might not elevate the prestige of Dior, but we are sure still a lot of people will die to wear these looks!
