Dior’s show em­bod­ied the strong, in­de­pen­dent woman, stem­ming from Raf Si­mons' pre­vi­ous fem­i­nine pieces.

Mod­ern, sleek and so­phis­ti­cated are words to de­scribe the in­cred­i­bly eye­pleas­ing Dior F/W ’15 col­lec­tion by cre­ative di­rec­tor Raf Si­mons. Un­like pre­vi­ous shows that em­bod­ied fem­i­nin­ity and flo­rals, Si­mons ap­proached an ap­peal­ing, ma­ture and lib­er­ated col­lec­tion for the new sea­son to high­light a wilder, more mas­cu­line woman in sleek tai­lored pieces. To high­light the new woman Si­mons is ap­proach­ing, la­tex leg­ging boots, bold-col­ored coats and em­bel­lished Pe­ter Pan col­lars took over the run­way. Si­mons ap­plied his back­ground in menswear de­sign to cre­ate tai­lored two-piece suits with cropped pants and dress shirts. Other high­lights of the show con­tin­ued with the trend of big tweed coats, wide-fringed slit knit skirts, liq­uid-mesh sleeve­less sam­ples, sleek, an­i­mal­printed tops, sig­na­ture bags in cam­ou­flage col­ors and fur coats. The cherry on top? The now-in­fa­mous trans­par­ent-heeled boots that took the run­way by storm. In the beauty depart­ment, Si­mons re­flected his more mys­te­ri­ous vi­sion in a fully dark­ened eye-shadow color, nude lips and sleek side pony­tails.
