PFW: Christian Dior

0Raf Simons is bringing Dior to the people. And this collection – a celebration of Christian Dior heritage – continues that campaign. This had the Andy Warhol treatment – the catwalk of silver orbs with clouds and sky projected on to it and hand-drawn black and white motifs on chiffon (part of a collaboration with The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts).

Pieces of Note: 
Traditional Simons utilitarian, there was a lack of eveningwear – if you don’t include the cocktail dresses – and an abundance of ready-to-wear pieces that could walk straight off the catwalk on to the highstreet. Black and white dresses decorated with floral explosions, a new interpretation of houndstooth, full knee-length skirts, Bar jackets, asymmetric capes (reminiscent of Little Red Riding Hood in some cases) and Oxford bags for the trousers.
Style: A muted palette of grey, black, white and blush, infused with scarlet. Simple and elegant, a perfect marriage between Dior and the Raf Simons vision.
