Dior Resort 2016







Photos via


Bonjour Cannes! This beautiful time of year has officially and happily arrived. The festival with my favorite red carpets, the best parties, and most importantly, the best of cinema. 

I'm not sure if Cannes 2015 was officially opened with Raf Simons' Dior Resort 2016 runway show, but I'm accepting this in my book. The venue is just in the hills above the Bay of Cannes, at Pierre Cardin's Bubble Palace - per usual, a visually pleasing venue. And the collection itself embodied this location so well, the shapes and silhouettes were all there. 

The show opened with these great plaid and gingham skirts, shorts, and frocks. All kilt like, but paired with stunning tops and detailing, all shaped brilliantly. I'm left needing peplums and curved hems, sculpted jackets and voluminous knits all in my life. 

I love when Raf gets all architectural with Dior. And I love when he mixes the architectural pieces and details with a very relaxed, on-vacation vibe.  The models in this collection all seemed a bit sun kissed (but not too sun kissed - it's the beginning of summer after all), with the wind permanently in their hair. The footwear came as easy going booties and leather flip-flips (gah, I know. Flip-flops at Dior). This is just all so amazing.  

This brings me back to Cannes and what I love so much about the concept. It's a place of chic ease. But a modern chic ease. A relaxed glamour, where there simply is no room for worries whatsoever. Raf brought all of this, and made me believe even more, that Cannes is magic like that.  

Thoughts on this collection? xx

  12. I have to be honest: I'm not the biggest fan of any of these outfits, mainly
    because they would be out of my comfort zone, but I loooove all of the shoes
    they are wearing. Especially the ones in the 3rd/4th pictures. To die for! Flip
    Flops, ugh, no. Not a fan, hahaha. But whatever floats ones boat, right? :D
