There’s a serene quality to Raf Simons’ work for Dior that taps into the history of the house while also representing the Belgian designer’s own sensibilities.
And the serenity of Simons’ second ready-to-wear line for Dior was literally reflected in the mirrored, blimp-like orbs that filled the catwalk space. Artful, Warholian designs decorated the asymmetric panels and peplums in the dress-heavy collection. If anything, the show lacked enough coats and knits, but if you can afford Dior you’ll be getting cars everywhere so no matter. A dalliance with dogtooth and crochet gave the collection texture, and it ended with a run of romantically modern dresses.
In short On reflection, Simons’ synergy with Dior is set for special things.
