Dior: All Choked Up

Two of my favorite bits from the Dior show: the neck scarves fastened with chokers and the scalloped edging. It’s all in the details.

  • I love scallop anything ~ on Chloe flats, flat sheets, bath towels, pie crust . . . and yes, the pant hem and this sweater are to die for! Scallops are feminine, but also tailored and crisp. The color is gorgeous! Beautiful choice!

  • It’s a beautiful detail that as a perennial scarf wearer, I thought: of course!
    The real “choking” I’d like to do though is to all the people lucky enough to be at a Dior show who can’t take their eyes off their phones. Tragic.

  • I love your picture but while enlarging the picture to admire the beautiful details I was so disappointed by the people in the audience. Once again our society shows it’s self absorbed selfs. I have had the privilege of sitting at the Paris runway shows and let me say it is a momment to view with your eyes not through your phone. I would bet most of them are not even videoing the beautiful event right in front of them. At that momment you OWE the designer your full attention. It lasts maybe 5 minutes and you are not that important that you need to have your face in your phone. If you are then decline your invitation. That is what your seat is an invitation to view an event that many peeple worked very hard to put together. Its not like you can’t pull up the entire run from many websites immediately following the show. So even if it’s your job (if blogging – another self absorbed momement – can even be a job) you will have accesss to the photo you need after the show. Enjoy the beauty in front of you everyday.

  • This sweater is stunning! I love the use of scarves, too. Regarding the phones, at some point someone will write a book, a la Dale Carnegie, and promote the concept of living in the moment and fully engaging the people in front of you and it will be a mega best seller ushering in a “new” way of presenting oneself to the world! Till then, it’s a selfie world, I guess.

  • The scallop hemmed shorts took my breath away: at once modern & feminine.

  • Very beautiful show.

    I was going to defend the smartphone users, but I took another look at the folks in the background, and yes, it’s really kind of sad. I can see shooting pics for work, but a lot of those folk don’t look like they’re shooting the model. I’ve never been to any of the shows, while I can imagine that by the time Paris rolls around, you’re going to be worn down and distracted, but I can’t imagine burying my nose in my smartphone during the runway presentation.

  • I love the color of the sweater…so beautiful.

  • I was so taken with the look here, I did not notice the audience! Indeed, they look ridiculous and also a bit depressed. The majority of this crowd shows up ‘to see and be seen’ themselves anyway; it’s less about the fashion show itself. It will all be online in an hour.
