She doesn’t want scandals anymore. She doesn’t need to steal the parties anymore. She’s moved on. Her wardrobe is pure sophistication and class. The new Dior lady was just born at Paris Fashion Week!
My emotions are flying real high! Raf Simons built his first collection for the House very smart. I felt like he was showing different aspects of life of the new Dior lady (yes, our Dior girl has just become a proper lady). He started the show from almost Dior Homme-turned-Femme (which felt pretty much his this-week’s-rival Hedi Slimane who used to do Dior’s menswear for long time). And this was the busy part of Dior Lady’s life. Then he switched to luminescent(!) cocktail minidresses and some black-tie looks still with some elements of business life. When it came to evening numbers I felt like reading the history of costume, the Christian Dior chapter…
It’s WOW to Raf Simons, to Dior, and to the birth of new Dior lady.
