Mid-Week Inspiration: Christian Dior Resort 2010

I'm in love with the resort collection from Christian Dior. Elegant retro refinement is the inspiration. This collection makes me want to polish up my look. I love everything about it, the leopard print, the hats, the fit of the suits, the sunglasses....oh my! Inspired from Christian Dior's muse in the 1950's, Mitzah Bricard, John Galliano based the collection on her favorite shade of lilac, and her delight in wearing pearls and leopard print. In Christian Dior's autobiography, Christian Dior and I, he wrote, "[Mitzah] Bricard is one of those people, increasingly rare, who make elegance their sole reason for being." That in itself is inspiring!
