Double Feature IV

A 'False Encyclopaedia' double feature with Matthew Attard Navarro, discussing:
Dior Spring/Summer 2015

Dior - Madame/Mrs/Ms. Dior all in one. No better time to be in Paris and this season really proves this. The LVMH family finally realised that the buyers of tomorrow must be wowed over today - and this Dior collection is exactly that, a pleasing collection for the previous generation of Dior owners, and a search for the new. After this season closes there'll be no surprises as to why Tait won that designer award. Is it all a bit too much?

What starts as blank minimalism with space age references, twists and turns via the baroque (Marie Antoinette robes) towards Tirolean folklore (floral embroidery) and handicraft tradition (knitted heels with woven-in contrast threads). A post-Disney, postmodernist fairytale.
