This is my first thread post. I was looking at some YouTube videos from this years fashion week and came across one for the Christian Dior Haut Couture 2012-2013 collection. I was liking what I saw but kept asking myself as I watched, 'what's with this collection', and then it came to me! I was looking at vintage styling in many of the clothes! Take a look and tell me if I'm right - or wrong - Does anyone else see vintage in the collection? Or, is it just me? The YouTube video link is:

I enjoyed viewing the video. I did feel that the dresses/skirts would have looked better if the hemlines were 1/2 inch to 1 inch shorter, IMHO - a shorter hemline would look more up-to-date I think.

I agree, the collection does have a vintage feel. I absolutely loved it! *swoon* I'll take one of each please! Seriously, as a petite many of the garments wouldn't work for me but I do think they are so feminine and pretty!

I'm sure you've heard Dior has a new creative director, Raf Simons. I was sorry to see him go from Jil Sander but Dior seems perfect for him. I loved the collection too.

Very wearable collection, and interesting use of fur. A fur dress! I liked most all the pieces but was bothered by the fit of the strapless pieces and also the exposed darts.

Im getting kind of tired of strapless to be honest. You dont see any wedding dresses nowadays that arent strapless either.
The suits at the beginning appealed to me more.
