Cruise 2009: Christian Dior

There are only a few designers who can make a sombrero chic. John Galliano is one of the few. His cruise Dior collection referenced '60s tropics — something Galliano quite fancies. And what's not to love? Tunics, capri pants, perfect suits, psychedelic prints, silk shantung, oversized costume jewelry. Oh, and fabulously chic sombreros. All of the above arriving in Starburst colors.

As for the accessories, they had just as much splendor. Platform wedges and destined-to-be-the-next-It-bag Dior hobos were fanciful and colorful. You can tell Galliano has fun with his cruise collections. And why shouldn't he: Cruises are super fun, so I hear.
