Christian Dior Resort 2013: Bill Gaytten's Final Collection is Floral & Feminine
Bill Gaytten presents his final collection for Christian Dior before Raf Simons makes his debut at the fashion house with the upcoming Haute Couture collection. Gaytten went subtle for the Resort 2013 designs, opting for classic, feminine shapes including full high-waisted belted skirts, sleeveless voluminous mini-dresses, peplums and pleated chiffon evening pieces. Infused with some multi-colour floral prints, statement tri-colour clutch bags and nude cat-eye shades, the collection was quietly triumphant, oozing purity, elegance and femininity. Gaytten finishes off his position at the design house with a cohesive collection that fits the label beautifully, and he will continue to quietly work for John Galliano's eponymous label now that his Dior time is up.
