Christian Dior - Collection Spring/Summer 2015 in Paris

In the heart of the Cour Carrée of the Louvre, Raf Simons for Christian Dior revisits the past in order to understand the future. As for his couture show, the designer plays with historical volumes of the riding coats, and the hooped petticoats of the 18th century, reinterpreted and reworked for the taste of today, in contemporary fabrics, and lightened tapestry prints. The show started with streamlined silhouettes composed of trousers and jackets with large contrasting cuffs on the sleeves. Then the bodies are buttoned to the skirts à la française, long shirt-dresses were adorned with floral and guipure prints, as well as aviator combinations appeared very modern. The high waisted Bermuda shorts were paired with sleeveless jackets with the volume billowing backwards, worn with sock boots. An extremely contemporary wardrobe writing a new page of Chistian Dior history.
