Dior SS 2011 presentation

I'm not much of a Dior enthusiast as the only thing that I am familiar with this label is the kerfuffle in the form of the news hovering its most celebrated designer John Galliano (you know, the story about him releasing racist comments and subsequently was sacked from House of Dior and so on...) 

And to add to my ignorance list apart from the ubiquitous J'adore Dior parfums I can only name Lady Dior bag as one of Dior's prominent products (with that certain image of Marion Cottilard modelling it in my mind).

 However I did not waste the opportunity to learn more profoundly about Dior when I was invited by Arman to attend its womenswear Spring-summer 2011 presentation in its boutique in Starhill Gallery.


We arrived to a small party of about thirty guests and started to mingle around and naturally, began to mill about every corner of the boutique to look, touch and feel the softness of the silk dresses, the coarse yet smooth weaves of tweed jackets, and admire the intricacies of little unexpected wonders like lace detail on a dress...

This dainty neutral-hued cardigan with bow and floral details is quite 'man-able' without, well, the floral details...

This weaved skirt is another unexpected detail from Dior that a lot of people out there might also appreciate...

A tiered dress which makes all the girly girls swoon over...

The print on this top and bag vaguely reminds me of one of those Rorschach ink-blot test, or one of those tie-dye techniques.


Crocheted tops without question is without question is suitable given our searing hot and humid weather..

Overtly feminine clothing continue to dominate in this collection it seems - especially evidenced in this dress with rose prints complete with pink sash...

But somehow a bit of structure sneaks in with this mildly accentuated shoulders (which then again, reminds me of Balenciaga from S/S 2008)...

Yours truly with among the guests that night - from left to right (Nazreem Musa, Ariezs, Dahlia Nadirah, Arman Shahril).

I was wearing a light cotton long shirt/trench by Helmut Lang, ruffled shirt by Rajesh Pratap Singh (a score from Musa relocation sale), Topshop leopard-print bag, tailored *Celio woolen pants and Prada foam shoes).

It was definitely a fun night spent with other fashion enthusiasts and not to mention perusing all these beautiful clothes were really on the eyes too...
