Want to own a piece of Raf Simons? Nab a piece (plus 98 more) from the designer’s extensive collection of delicate objects, when the designer’s slew of ceramics will get auctioned at Piasa Rive Gauche auction house in Paris.
Christian Dior: The famed MusÃ©e Rodin was transformed into an upside down greenhouse for Christian Dior, with long colorful strands of flowers hanging from the ceiling; a majestic background for yet another outstanding collection from Raf Simons. The neckpieces mirrored dripping fauna, encircling the necks of the mods, with glistening baubles bleed into jackets, dresses, and tops. Always light years ahead of his contemporaries, Simons turns trends into his own entirely. Cutouts were fashioned at the hip or created by loose weaves on a crop top.

Raf Simons: By taking his collection 30 minutes outside of Paris, Raf Simons’ latest looks for men was a bit lighter and airier than typical, sometimes very serious City of Lights showings. An apropos shelter for this youthful production? Larry Gagosian’s Le Bourget gallery, where works of art by Alexander Calder and Jean ProuvÃ© provided the background for Simons’ Spring/Summer 2014 Collection. Taking cues from his past as a rowdy club kid, the designer infused basic black pieces with bright colors and pop art references that felt right at home against the thumping background music. Acid raindrops washed across a bold striped tank, for example, while a shrunken blazer topped off an elongated tee.
The Guggenheim Gala is getting glitzier. Christian Dior will be sponsoring the annual social event on November 6th and 7th. On hand to make the announcement today: Dior’s creative director, Raf Simons; director of the Guggenheim, Richard Armstrong; and board member, Jennifer Stockman.
The race is on! Raf Simons debuted his Resort 2014 collection on a rainy day in Monaco on Saturday. The location was fitting not only, because of Monsieur Dior’s long relationship with Monaco maven, Princess Kelly, but also due to Simons’ own relationship with the country’s current fashion plate, Princess Charlene. What’s more? The collection was also about the speed of life and debuted a series of zig zag patterns and assym hemlines to highlight the theme so appropos of a Principality whose history is steeped in the raceways.
Thought you were out of reasons to love Jennifer Lawrence any more than you do? We’ve got just one more. The Oscar winner gave Raf Simons a little tug the other night that was caught on camera by Billy Farrell at the Met Ball. Everything about this is a classic.
