Raising the Bar

John Galliano’s couture collection for Christian Dior featured multiple versions of the house’s famous Bar jacket. Only here that ultrashapely New Look essential was characteristically twisted, turned and toughened up.

John Galliano opened with a white, boldly collared, full-skirted coat, cinched with a deep corset belt in high-contrast black patent, just to make the point, he said. Which is that this collection is all about construction, each look built on a “body,” a corseted foundation, some of which were partly visible under the undulations of inventive dégradé fabrics.
