I was really looking forward to this collection and I was not disappointed. There was so much that caught my eye. I was most impressed with the way Raf Simons made use of his architectural background, combined it with classic Christian Dior, and came up with these beautiful well-constructed pieces. There were so many great moments, like the transformation of the Bar Jacket into a tuxedo-dress, with its cupped pockets moved so that they sit over the breasts. I also love the fact that Raf Simons took inspiration from the late Christian Dior. We saw a lot of the ‘flower women’ silhouette, which is what designer Christian Dior used to describe his revolutionary 1947 New Look of a cinched waists and full skirts that resembled inverted flowers.
The first few items were the best, I was a little bit underwhelmed towards the end of the show, they should have probably cut down the amount of pieces and stuck with the best ones. Overall, it was a good collection. What do you think of this collection? Feel free to comment.
