Dior Couture 2012

The big moment for Raf Simons came and everybody was there to see his first collection for Christian Dior house. “A shift is happening”, as he said and we couldn’t agree more, especially after seeing a collection full of both emotional and intellectual resonance. Perfectionistic minimalism married with unforgettable Dior shapes, as the formal past was meeting the future. Trying to rebuild the classic bar suit’s shape back from the 1950s, he managed to deliver beautiful proportions, using peplums combined with cigarette pants.
