FRUITS of LABOUR

chris­tian dior “I was in­trigued by the idea of the for­bid­den fruit and what that means now,” re­vealed Raf Si­mons. The jux­ta­po­si­tion of pu­rity with lux­ury and ex­cess came through in Si­mons’ fu­tur­ist ap­proach to fash­ion; the re­sult was a col­lec­tion (and a space) that seemed pure fairy tale. Soft and del­i­cate nat­u­ral chif­fon and taffeta dresses were ac­cented by jew­elled can­nage vests, while frocks inspired by Dior’s fa­mous 1950s New Look shape were made of multi-hued feath­ers and styled with knit­ted fur gilets. The venue—a hand-painted psy­che­delic green house—fea­tured a vi­o­let car­pet adorned with berry­like sculp­tures.
