the Christian Dior boat

Captain John Galliano, of the Christian Dior boat

throws the anchor down in the warm waters of the Pacific with nautical-themed outfits.

The Christian Dior Spring Summer 2011 collection mixed a variety of marine themes, from Polynesia and the docks of Marlon Brando’s “On the Waterfront” to the Rodgers & Hammerstein musical, “South Pacific”, and Rainer Fassbinder’s 1982 film, “Querelle”. The catwalk was a rusting slipway, set against a harbourside setting of wooden pilings, chains, gantrys and ropes. The clothes blended tough-guy T-shirts, sailors’ trousers, life-vests and nautical cagouls, with flimsy, chiffon mini’s, bubble-hem dresses, and fringed, ‘hula’-gowns.

Models, styled in the manner of the 1950′s movie pin-up, Bettie Page, with false fringes, flick-up hair, and bright red lips, posed and gave jaunty salutes in faux captain’s hats at the end of the catwalk.  Designerz Central
