Christian Dior Fall 2015 Couture.
So, this is Raf "Fighting out of Dior's DNA". Thoughts on this statement?
My own thoughts are as follows:
I do admire this collection, as I find the sort-of obsession with the sleeve fascinating. I love the play with the sleeve against the human form, truly showing what an amazing eye Raf has. Those coat/cape pieces are an awesome twist, as heavy as I'm sure they are, they beautifully look as though they are floating. I love the connection to nature in this collection, the floral prints being one of my favorite Raf signatures. I love the medieval dresses; obviously short, cute, and modernized and yet I'd totally feel like a Guinevere wearing one.
Raf is amazing for bringing something new to a brand that is so recognizable (for example, I say "New Look + Dior" and we all think directly of this). And that special thing Raf does bring is a great respect for minimalism, that less is more (even in couture). This greatly speaks to the minimalist within me, and it is refreshing. xx
