PARIS — The dominant themes of this cruise season are femininity and sexiness, but there’s more than one way to interpret those ideas. John Galliano, for example, is showing two of them himself, displaying a tough glamour in his Christian Dior collection and a slightly cartoonish, colorful look in his signature line. Dior features a camouflage-print silk taffeta evening dress and a camouflage swimsuit, both certain to cause a stir. Even the denim bikini is studded. Galliano, on the other hand, showcases innocent white chiffon and bright silk chiffons pieced together in patchwork patterns.
Here, highlights of both.
