Christian Dior Orientalist Hair Ornament, John Galliano A/W 2003

About

Christian Dior Autumn/ Winter 2003 RTW hair ornament, an amalgamation of Chinese and Japanesque styles. Silver gilt metal, central butterfly etched with floriform designs, and long conical drops. Signed Dior on Butterfly front with trembling antennae. Iconic accessory from this collection. Excellent Condition, Length 6", Width 2.3". "Only one man on earth could possibly whip up a collection of fetish queens in Kabuki face paint, going crazy in multicolor Asian-slash-eighteenth-century clothes. Hello, John Galliano! Up to his canny method madness at Christian Dior yet again. “It was hard-core romance! Sex robots!” was the sound bite Galliano delivered backstage to describe his ready-to-wear version of the conceptual mayhem he wreaked at Dior’s couture collection in January. Back then he’d just come back from a trip to China and Japan, scandalizing many critics with the extra-outsize scale of his box-shaped, 3-D cutting experiments and mind-blowing kaleidoscope of East-West references." Sarah Mower
