A new era for CHRISTIAN DIOR – PFW Haute Couture 2012 Day 2

Couture Roots

“I feel good,” said a smiling Raf Simons as he sipped on a Coke after his debut Christian Dior haute couture collection. And so he should be. The designer went back to the drawing board with this collection reexamining the most famous of all the Dior fashion shows the 1947 “New Look” collection and the iconic “the Bar” ensemble.

Raf Simons’ first couture outing for Dior proved to be a perfect marriage between the Belgian designer’s minimal aesthetic and the heritage of Dior couture which dates back to the 1940s. With the fall 2012 couture season, Simons featured a gathering of tailored suits, sweeping gowns, tuxedo jackets and coat dresses. The color palette was quite reserved featuring hues of navy, yellow, royal blue and red steeped in neutral black and grey. With a focus on silhouettes and proportions, Simons ushered in a new era of Dior with a collection of thoroughly modern yet timeless pieces.
