Fashion Rewind/ Candy Couture

Hello there! Today I was in the mood for a little look back on one of the best shows Fall 2011 Couture threw at us. It was the first non-Galliano collection in 15 years, but that's not to say that there weren't pieces of the usual Christian Dior aesthetic showing through.

Happily for the lovers of all things scrumptious, the collection was inspired by old school candy.










There were Bonbon hats, cake wrapper dresses and geometric printed skirts in a tribute to Liquorice All Sorts; it was no wonder that the collection went down a treat (no pun intended!).



Liquorice skirt and Dib-Dab shirt.

Cake wrapper dress embellished with silver beading.
I love the headpiece - very Milky Way!



Here are some more of my delicious favourites!


Tin foil candy wrapper top? And a meringue for a skirt!



Geometric choccy squares?


I love this dress

It wouldn't be Dior without a hat that
looks like a Crayola nib!



Hope you liked this sweet rewind as much as I do! Have a lovely day!

Love,
Rachel.
