Dior Musings

These past couple of weeks I've been somewhat of a nomad. Drifting to and fro, sleeping here and there, taking random work shifts, spending lazy days on benches by the beach or walking for hours from one side of the city to the other. It has been a great cure for my usual summer restlessness (what does one do when they don't have exams to think about?). However, I haven't been able to settle down long enough to keep track of the to-ings and fro-ings of the fashion industry. Galliano has released a restrained couture collection for Dior? I love the combination of flapper hats with wasp-waists. The former giving a cheeky nod to the liberation from restraint in the form of loose drop-waists in the 20s, and the latter slyly chaining the waist once again in a very dramatic 50's-style silhouette. But most of all I love those shoes. Dior certainly knows the way to a girl's... ego.
