Dior Cruise 2011

The scent of freshly cut white roses, softly lit candles and a private suite 30 floors up at the Crown Towers set the scene for last weeks showing of the 2011 Dior Cruise Collection.

Inspired by Parisian New Wave cinematic bombshells such as the devine Brigitte Bardot, the collection showed lots of pastels, candy colours, stripes and subtle floral hints, whether printed on the fabric or through intricate beading.

Even leather with the finest of flowers attached, on close inspection you know you're in the presence of design genius. John Galliano's attention to detail is impeccable, fabrics loomed with the same cross stitch as the original Dior quilted bag and signature bows featured prominently on finer details such as belts and shoulder straps.

The collection flashes back to the past, with the light floral trench being a modern take on an actual 1950's archived piece.

Straight from the runway, were showstopping necklaces, cuffs and chokers, adorned with pearls, swarovski crystals and ebony wood, snapping shut with magnet clasps and pins.

And then there is the metalicised goat skin leather handbag and matching wallet. Drool.

I had to try a few pieces on, all in the name of research of course! And as you can see, I felt like Alice in Fashion Wonderland!

Watch the collection being shown here, as shown in Shanghai earlier this year. Enjoy! xoxox
