ready to make sailor promises

Are you ready to become a yachtswoman and to travel 
the seven seas? Maybe you'll never own a yacht nor turn 
yourself into a sailor but you'd better be ready to join 
the navy next spring according to latest shows in Paris.
John Galliano's for Christian Dior and Junya Watanabe both 
drew a bead on seafarer look with their s/s 11 collections.

You may choose the option between a sophisticated and 
winking look, sort of South Pacific Betty Page's island 
fantasy and a much more romantic and retro style 
playing with stripes, lengths and layering.
Dior presented sailor hats on navy oversized jackets, leather 
peacoats, leather maxi bags and high heeled sandals while 
Watanabe showed long sleeved trench coats, tunics worn 
over striped leggings, canvas jackets and wide 
dresses with nautical motifs worn with male flat shoes.
Pinup or Tokyo doll, which will be your beach-going 
style next year?
