  • Description

    VISNEWS HAS HAD A LOOK AT THE SPRING AND SUMMER COLLECTION OF CHRISTIAN DIOR -- PERHAPS THE MOST FAMOUS FASHION HOUSE OF THEM ALL. THIS YEAR MARK BOHAN, DIOR'S CHIEF DESIGNER, PRESENT CLOTHES FOR YOUTH ON ITS WILDEST FLING -- AND OTHER WOMEN AT THEIR GLAMOROUS. DIOR'S COLLECTION BROKE THE SQUARE LOOK THAT HAD SEEMED TO BE HAUNTING PARIS. THROUGHOUT THE COLLECTION WAS ESSENTIALLY YOUNG.

    NARROW SHOULDERS, SNUG-TIGHT BODICES. LONG SLEEVES, AND TWO INCH WIDE BELTS WITH A SLIGHTLY FLARED SKIRT MADE UP HIS YOUTHFUL TRIANGULAR LINE. AND IN KEEPING WITH THE LINE, SKIRTS WERE SLICED OFF TOW INCHES ABOVE THE KNEE.

    EVEN THE SHOES YOUNGER WITH SQUARE TOES AND LOW HEELS, AND MADE FROM A DOZEN DIFFERENT MATERIALS WITH A WIDE RANGE OF COLOURS.

    COLOURS - WELL NAVY BLUE ALWAYS BEEN A FAVOURITE WITH DIOR AND ONCE AGAIN IT SURGED THROUGHOUT THE COLLECTION BLOTTING OUT THE RED HAT HAD BEEN SEEN AT MANY HOUSES.

    DIOR HAS JOINED MOST OF THE PARIS COLLECTIONS WITH HIS WILD GAY PRINTS -- IT'S A MEXICAN LOOK THAT APPEARS IN MANY DIFFERENT DRESSES.

    BOHAN HAS NEVER OFFERED THE DEEP PLUNGING NECKLINE OF THE LATE CHRISTIAN DIOR, BUT A COUPLE OF HIS EVENING DRESSES DIPPED LOW. AND THERE'S CAREFULLY CUT "HIP INTEREST".

    ANOTHER OF BOHAN'S DEPARTURES FROM HIS FELLOW COUTURIERS WERE HIS PLEATS THIS YEAR. INSTEAD OF HUGGING THE BODY THEY SWIRLED OUT FROM THE SHOULDER WITH A GRACE ALWAYS FAMILIAR WITH THE HOUSE OF DIOR.
