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.
