here’s ma­jor buzz about the House of Dior right now— for his de­but Cou­ture Fall 2012 Col­lec­tion, Raf Si­mons, Dior’s new Cre­ative Di­rec­tor, traced the brand’s iconic lin­eage of the 1950s! Bal­anc­ing his char­ac­ter­is­tic min­i­mal­ism and Dior’s iconic whimsy, the show took away from the patent Gal­liano ro­man­ti­cism. Si­mons took in­spi­ra­tion from Mr Dior’s dis­tinct ar­chi­tec­ture of clothes, as well as his fas­ci­na­tion with flow­ers. So, the rooms were cov­ered with wall­pa­pers of flow­ers, while the col­lec­tion fo­cussed on struc­ture and de­tail that are tra­di­tion­ally Dior. The clas­sic hourglass sil­hou­ette made ap­pear­ances through pe­plum tops and full-skirted ball gowns, stream­lined for to­day with trim bodices, rounded hips and cinched waists. Rachel Weisz and Mar­ion Cotil­lard were among the first to wear his pieces, and we have only two words for them— lucky girls!
