Paris Couture Roundup: Thimister and Dior

Josephus Thimister returned to the couture catwalk after an absence of a decade. According to the Telegraph, the theme of the self-financed collection was “Anti-War” and featured military-look jodhpurs, overalls and Cossack jackets splattered with fake blood; greatcoats and jackets patched together from military surplus and goatskin; and “survival blanket” trousers, scorched with brown paint to resemble burns.

Meanwhile at Dior, John Galliano showcased the Upper Classes with a collection that spoofed the horsey set gentry (while selling them very expensive garments)

To make up for the dwindling number of couture houses in Paris, The Syndicale has invited up-and-coming jewellery concerns Boucheron, Cartier and Van Cleef & Arpels to hold special “jewel shows” for select customers.
