Paris Fashion Week: Christian Dior autumn/winter 2012/13 collection

On Friday it was Christian Dior’s turn to host their autumn/winter 2012/13 collection, and with rumours rife that both Stefano Pilati (whom had left Yves Saint Laurent) and Raf Simons (who had shown his last collection for Jil Sander) may both be possibilities of taking over this heritage fashion house they were once again squashed by Bill Gaytten who continued to show for his second R-T-W season at Dior.

Last season it was all about the 1950s glamour and this continued again with cinched and belted waists under a cascade of peplum tops, dresses and skirts alongside lady-like leather gloves worn to the elbows.

A selection of houndstooth print jackets were incorporated alongside pleats, fur coats and a palette which ranged from dusky pink to midnight blue. Silk was shown throughout on bows, skirts, dresses and panels which streamed down dresses.

There was also block colour coats with a finale of Oscar worthy gowns swathed in tulle and completed with chiffon with corseted and silk tops.
