SNOW JOB: John Galliano is in a sporty mood. This week in Paris, he unveiled an unexpected project chez Christian Dior: skiwear. Destined to arrive in Dior boutiques by the end of October, the collection includes one-piece suits and ski pants loaded with technical details for a serious schuss. But there are also loads of fashion-oriented styles for après-ski, including miniskirts, cashmere balaclavas, logo-loaded goggles and moon boots trimmed with long-haired fur. And that’s not all that’s keeping the couturier out of trouble. After presenting fantastic flamenco dresses galore on the runway in July, Galliano also whipped up a special collection of daywear that is generating buzz among the couture flock. The suits and dresses are headed to New York’s Hotel Plaza Athénée next week.
FIELD CALL: With the characters on “Sex and the City” settling down to their final season, it’s no wonder costume designer Patricia Field has decided to introduce men’s wear into the House of Field collection designed by David Dalrymple. The company is adding an entire men’s concept to House of Field, showing five looks at its runway show next week.
