Christian Dior Resort 2011

 The swinging sixties came crashing into the future at the Christian Dior resort 2011 show, held in Shanghai this year. Despite being held in China, the whole show had a Parisian feel, as the models strutted their stuff in 60's inspired chic.

A mix of marine stripes and pops of pastel pink started off the show, and remained predominant throughout - the pastels took over towards then end, when the show finished off with several spectacular pastel shade dresses. The casual wear was simplistic yet tailored - block coloured skirts accompanied buttoned up jackets and oversized white sunglasses. Layered baby-doll dresses came down the catwalk in lipstick pink, teamed up with a beehive hairdo and lime green matching shoes and bag.

Many short dresses were tiered into different layers of ruffles and decorated with ribbons, all topped off with a powerful red pout on the models. Others showed off a more masculine look, dressed in tailored slack style trousers, which were balanced with fitted blazers and trilby hats.

The show ended with some princess style gowns from the couture collection, in candyfloss colours, mostly strapless with spectacular flow and width. The collection as a whole was ingenious - it takes a man like Galliano to bring French chic to China and make it work, but he more fairly showed off his stunning array of designs.
