Galliano, Boy George & Dr. Seuss

Galliano for Christian Dior Haute Couture Fall 2010

This evil genius disguised as a mere designer has done it again with an unlikely show for fall 2010. Florals normally deemed only spring appropriate were pushed aside for explosive orchids, bright neons and purples that just work. Loads of '50s inspired leather accents (yellow gloves!) all topped off by updated Boy George-esque eye makeup makes everything fit for what is sure to be one of the most eye-catching collections in haute couture this fall.
Hair was done up into giant plumes taking it a step farther than the towering beehives at Prada F/2010, and actually dipping into Dr. Seuss territory. Faces and hair were partially masked with what appears to be deep magenta and purple cellophane, which is clearly referencing back to the whole floral theme.
Something about this collection is just so native. It's clearly not a collection to be ignored; The way the enlarged orchid prints peeps through the much darker gowns roughens this collection up a (needed) little bit. The orchids seem to melt into an almost dip-dyed look and work so well unexpectedly placed under the solids so greatly incorporated into this collection.
