Back to our pre fall show posts. Did you enjoy the Preen, Nina Ricci, Chloe and Phillip Lim reviews? Gosh, as fast as we can post show reviews, we can’t quite keep up with the fashion world as Paris is now knee deep in the Couture collections. Before we know it we’ll be in the midst of the main Autumn Winter ’14 shows too. What a whirl of wonderfulness!
Anyway, before we are thoroughly distracted let’s get a few more pre-season reviews in for you, and next on our agenda is Dior. I am totally in love with what Simons has done with Dior. He was a perfect choice to bring the house back in to the spotlight (and in the spotlight for all the right reasons). I really enjoy how you can see his style as well as appreciate what Dior stands for.
As is to be expected, the pre-season show is quite experimental and a little more fun feeling than the full blown collections. Continuing on the graphic, colour blocking theme, we really love the clean lines of this look, building on what we have come to expect from this label based on the evolution of the past few season’s aesthetic. There is something a little more playful here too. I for one didn’t expect to see an MA1 jacket inspired look from Dior! Innovative proportions are supported by a combination of structured and fluid textiles, and enhanced with a strong hand with boldly contrasting colours.
I’m not totally convinced by those orthopedic looking neck bands though…
