Christian Dior - Haute Couture Autumn/ Winter 2014/15 Collection in Paris

Raf Simons is inspired by the past in order to create the future in his latest haute couture autumn/winter 2014/15 collection for Christian Dior. In the gardens of the Musée Rodin, a wall of orchids make up the floral setting for the autumn-winter 2014/15 Christian Dior haute couture collection. The long haired models, with gold or silver eyeliner to subtly accentuate their eyes, arrive in groups into the circular space through several doors. Raf Simons is inspired by the past in order to create the future, shifting the 18th century into the 21st. He reinterprets delicately embroidered jackets or overcoats with supported waists and rounded sleeves. Silk jacquard pannier dresses open the show and seem to float on the body, as Raf Simons refines the silhouette to the maximum in order to give way to lightness. The future is expressed through embroidered silk suits. He also revisits wardrobe classics, with pea coats made in blue ink wool worn over straight black wool trousers, or through long overcoats pleated at the back or with gigot sleeves. The show is brought to a close by a series of pleated dresses in soft colours such as almond green, powder pink, Dior grey or off-white, which are contrasted by an electric blue.
