Love the shapes and textures at Christian Dior. This one looks like a feral watermelon. The shoes are vile. I am beginning to suspect Raf Simons can't design a shoe I like.
Valentino used decor details like molding, doorknockers and wallpaper for inspiration. Some of these pieces are lovely ready-to-wear, but aren't exactly imaginative couture. Some however, feather work and embroidered gowns in particular, were top notch flaunting of skill.
I have long been a fan of Jean Paul Gaultier, but he's been putting out horribly dated shows for a few seasons. This couture show is a return to form with a few 80s touchstones but overall a look to the future. Also, I need to buy leopard tights.
