Cruise 2008 Galliano for Christian Dior Blue Silk Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

From the Cruise collection for 2008 comes this gorgeous little silk dress in a beautiful shade of ocean blue. This was look 10 and was shown on Chanel Iman for the runway. Galliano played with the one shoulder silhouette in this collection and also highlighted this large over-sized paisley design that adorns the silk throughout the collection. You often see a nod to the fifties and sixties in his work for Dior during this time period and never more so here with this silhouette. It is so easy to wear and has a delightful retro and feminine feel to it. The silk chiffon is as light as a feather. It drapes up and over one shoulder with a wide band of silk and pretty soft gathers at the top of the shoulder. The waist cinches softly in and you can define with further with the original belt that has a pearl and crystal buckle. The skirt is stunning and seems to float around you, moving with your slightest movement. It is gorgeous. Excellent condition
