Dior fusion sneakers 2015 ?!

Once upon a time, to be precise one year ago, Couture drew heavy inspirations from street wear’s favourite item – the sneakers! There were lace trainers at Chanel looking pretty (just to bring the shoe back in mind click here) and embroidered swim shoes at Dior looking weird (if you want to see the shoe click here). A few month later Dior announced that the embroidered swim shoes will become available as a ready to wear item, which can be purchased in store. Plenty of people wore the shoes while attending the Couture presentations in July 2014 and when you were strolling along the streets in fashion capitals like Paris you started to see them occasionally on the feet of young fashionistas. That said for me it was crystal clear that the Dior Fusion sneakers are a short lived IT piece. However, fashion is made to surprise us and make us wonder – “Dior fusion sneakers 2015” is a topic to deal with.

Dior fusion sneakers … A new trend?

It was last season that the couture world shocked us – There were urban sneakers on the runways. Not only at one show but at two – Chanel and Dior. While the Chanel version was an immediate love affair for me and I was more than happy to spot a similar shape on the Chanel supermarket ready to wear runway for this fall – the Dior version was something I found highly ugly. Something like a swim shoe. End of June 5 versions of the Dior fusion sneakers were taken out of the couture atelier and officially launched at the Parisian temple of cool – Colette! As I had expected the couture street style was full of woman wearing the Dior fusion sneakers to the shows.

Purity of shape at Dior couture fall 2014

On Monday one of the biggest shows definitely was Dior couture fall 2014. According to style.com and the Dior press release the theme of the show was “across time”. The collection showed influences from so many centuries, which were interpreted in a new and modern way in order to show in one collection how much “…the future is based on the past”. In that way the collection was an extremely fabulous lesson in fashion history. Beyond this almost educational aspect and the beauty of the  looks the show provided a lot of inspirations for the general fashionistas, whose wardrobe isn’ t based on Couture! What are these implications?

Dior tribal earrings price – Spotted a bargain at Le Marais Paris?!

The Dior tribal earrings price is a question of debate. While the Dior homepage officially says 270 EURO for the initial pearl Mise en Dior tribal earring, 310 EURO for the kautschuk coated Gum Tee shirt and the metal Dior Tee shirt, resale prices on ebay and co. can be much higher. While in Paris about 2 weeks ago I found a store in the Marais, which offered an almost look alike earring for 29 EURO!!! Obviously its fake!?
