Catherine Earnshaw at Christian Dior

.
"I've dreamt in my life dreams that have stayed with me ever after, 
and changed my ideas; they've gone through and through me, 
like wine through water, and altered the colour of my mind."


"Heaven did not seem to be my home; 
and I broke my heart with weeping to come back to earth; 
and the angels were so angry that 
they flung me out into the middle of the heath 
on the top of Wuthering Heights; where I woke sobbing for joy. 
That will do to explain my secret, as well as the other"


 "My love for Linton is like the foliage in the woods. 
Time will change it, 
I'm well aware, as winter changes the trees - 
my love for Heathcliff resembles the eternal rocks beneath - 
a source of little visible delight, but necessary."

The collection of Christian Dior by John Galiano presented in Paris-

evoking Catherine Earnshaw Linton, the Heights, the moors, the heath-


"Heaven did not seem to be my home; 
and I broke my heart with weeping to come back to earth; 
and the angels were so angry that they flung me out 
into the middle of the heath on the top of Wuthering Heights; 
where I woke sobbing for joy. T
hat will do to explain my secret, as well as the other."


 "I sought, and soon discovered, 
the three head-stones on the slope next the moor — 
the middle one, gray, and half buried in heath — 
Edgar Linton's only harmonized by the turf and moss, 
creeping up its foot — Heathcliff's still bare.
   I lingered round them, under that benign sky; 
watched the moths fluttering among the heath, 
and hare-bells; listened to the soft wind breathing through the grass; 
and wondered how anyone could ever imagine unquiet slumbers, 
for the sleepers in that quiet earth."

  1. Greetings,

    Forgive my honesty, but I love fashion with style and had I been born a woman, I would feel right at home with a number of these exceptional outfits. I must also include that your quotations are a wonderful counter point to the images.

    Thank you for sharing,
    Egmont

  3. Egmont- I think a part of artistry and artists is to be able to think yin and yang. Galiano certainly has this great ability- witness this collection. He is a genius. I immediately saw Wuthering Heights and the moors in this collection. PGT

  5. The sheer grey number does me in. I love reading the Wuthering Heights bits, extracted from their home - the beauty shines.
