As his first collection for the house of Dior, Raf Simons suggests a redefinition of haute couture. For the upcoming fall-winter 2012, Simons acknowledges femininity as an attitude. The 2012 woman wants to express herself and get out of the conventionalism of clothes.
The Bar jacked was one of most popular items in the show. The jacket reflects Dior’s style, with narrow waist and peplum details accenting the hips. Very feminine. Another standout from the runway? Floral embroideries, colored furs, mille-feuilles of multi-hued mesh, duchess satin, and flowers, many flowers. The decoration were walls covered with thousands of flowers and were definite an experience.
