Christian Dior Spring 2015

By  |  0 Comments

What does Raf Simons have up his sleeve for Spring chez Dior? Some extremely fascinating plays on proportion, a new vision for suiting, B&W aplenty, and crisp yet quirky layering. Also on offer: very exaggerated exercises in volume (see: looks 6, 7, 8, and 14) and rows of tiny buttons cropping up at every which angle. The bright whites of the opening sequence thoroughly modernized the kind of quaint detailing that one might find on a dress dating back to the 18th century, like tiny floral motifs, eyelet, high necklines, poufy sleeves, and bustles. A few long Edwardian coats were brought into 2014 thanks to bright hues like marigold and magenta, paired with quilted cream skate shorts. On the footwear front, midcalf boots were gussied up with knit detailing. An interesting, thoughtful take on rejiggering some (very) old aesthetics for today.
