Dior’s fantasy island: SS11

John Galliano doesn’t just create a collection around a theme… he creates a fantasy around a collection. For Spring 2011 it was all nautical sailors and island belles, with sailor pants and caps matched by buckled ankle boots and slouchy socks bringing the masculine elements, and ribbon-tie heels, floating silks, and floral lei necklaces ramping up the tropical glamour. As always, Galliano’s girls were in full fantasy theme. Classic makeup modernised by bold colours and vintage-glam hair – thickly fringed and neatly curled – could only be made more retro by the occasional addition of cat eye sunglasses.

You can see more pictures of the collection after the jump.
