Dior Haute Couture Fall 2014: Modern Mechanics

Thank gawd.  Nary a cut high in the front, floor sweeping in the back gown in sight.  I was getting a little worried about Raf Simons.  

But on Look 10, I could feel my heart pounding, and thinking Yes! this is what couture should be!  A mechanic's jumpsuit, beautifully embroidered and cinched at the waist with an amazing belt!  It's Modern Mechanics for the haute couture.

How would I wear this?  Honey, let me count the ways: with the pants rolled up with a flat sandal for a super casual night out, with a Converse sneaker for going to RARE vintage in the morning and/or with a simple high stiletto to a ball...

And speaking of investment: Are you ready to rock the embroidered frock coat like Look 38?  I hope this makes the cover of Vogue worn a la the Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele styled first issue of Vogue under Anna Wintour's editorship in 1983 - you know the one, when Carlyne put a Lacroix couture jacket with a pair of jeans.  This frock coat needs a pair of jeans...
