The inspiration? Marie Antoinette

If John Galliano’s inspiration when he officiated at Dior had to be summed up in one period of history, it would probably

be the Baroque era. In 2022, for the 60th anniversary of the French house, the designer offers a collection between

delicacy and romance, inspired by Queen Marie Antoinette. The program? Precious dresses with powdered colors signatures

of the time, with the waist cinched and puffed skirt. Adidas Originals Superstar Toddler imdb

and the angelic face of Lighnting seduced the fan of manga culture, and artistic director of the brand, Nicolas

Ghesquière. The designer will then present a spring-summer 2022 line inspired by the world of video games, with

the opening of the show, a model resembling Lightning. copyright warner bros gmbh

Blade Runner, Fall-Winter 2022-2022 pre-collection

The inspiration? Blade Runner

While the reboot of Ridley Scott’s film is currently in theaters, the characters have inspired many designers. This

is the case of Nicolas Ghesquière for Dior who, during the pre-fall 2022 collection of the house, drew from the dark

and neo-futuristic universe of Blade Runner. A subtle homage that manifests itself in particular in the long coats

with a strict cut, like an ode to the two-piece suit fitted with the character of Rachael. Disney

The inspiration? The Disney characters

Bobby Abley was trained at Jeremy Scott, and you can feel it. His creativity and fantasy led him to create

a collection based on Disney characters. For fall-winter 2022-2022, the house’s colorful t-shirts, sweatshirts

and jackets feature the faces of Mickey, Donald, Daffy Duck, Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty.
