I loved Dior’s Fall 2019 collection’s embellished skirts, many on tulle with butterfly motifs made of feathers, sequins, and print overlaid with sheer black wave textured fabric. The black and white ink print dress and contrast dot and gingham skirt were also charming. I felt as if the gingham flannel jackets, hats, coats and skirts- even the plaid pants- didn’t really speak to the Teddy Girl Edwardian inspiration cited by Vogue’s Sally Singer. Excluding the looks that oozed Dior, I liked neither the rather boxy silhouette of outfits paired with jackets, nor the voluminous quilted garments or chunky knit top as they weren’t particularly flattering. It was really the textures of the textiles, fabric manipulation, most of the prints, and applique that shined.
