John Galliano's Inspiration, Illustrations by Rene Gruau
Karl Lagerfield's Inspiration, Marie Laurencin 'Les Biches'
Two of the big couture shows for Spring ‘11 were obviously inspired by the glamour of the past and reminded us Vintage Thread's girls why we love vintage!
John Galliano at Dior was inspired by Rene Gruau, the illustrator who worked for Dior through the Forties andFifties. Gloves, amazing gowns, high waisted skirts and large fur coats came down the catwalk! After our last post on vintage beauty we couldn't help but notice the fabulous job Pat McGrath did on the make up. The girls just oozed glamour.
Karl Lagerfield at Chanel was inspired by 1920's artist Marie Laurencin. Drop waists and delicate details met Chanel's signature tweeds. As per usual though there was a twist and Lagerfield had all the girls wearing pointy flats which while they looked great on the models, I’m not sure a girl of average height could pull off the look.
