“DIOR” Christian Dior | Haute Couture Fall Winter 2014 2015

The collection signed by Raf Simons for DIOR stunned the whole public attending the show, even overshadowing the wide presence of celebrities such as Charlize Theron, Senn Penn, Marion Cotillard, Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Watson. As a matter of fact the whole environment had something of divine and ethereal, with models resembling graceful nymphs walking elegantly in an antiseptic white circular Olympus with silver walls adorned with pristine white orchids.
The first attires had embroidered blooms and were variations of the same idea or silhouette, with as well sleeveless tops and voluminous skirts. These dresses were a fusion between a futuristic and an 18th Century touch, to which followed creations of long and relaxed coats with luxe furs and dark wools. Such philosophy was well expressed by a Simons quote in the show notes: “What I was attracted to was an idea of architectural construction-that is a very Dior attitude- and how the foundations of one era are based on another, how the future is based on the past; that is what I found fascinating”.
