French luxury fashion house Christian Dior presented their new Haute Couture fall 2015 collection at the Musée Rodin in Paris.
Creative director Raf Simons found inspiration for this collection in the notion of “garden of earthly delights: a vision of innocence and experience, simplicity and luxury, beauty and decadence”.
He stated: “I think it’s a collection full of contrasts: it represents the pure but it also represents the more dangerous sides. It represents something very light but also something much more covered, something exposed, but also something much more free.”
There were also lots of references to the work of Old Masters of Flemish painting and to the artisanal masters of haute couture to provide a synthesis of historical form, technique and artistic gesture to arrive at the point of today.
Like an ephemeral pointillist work, thousands of tiny dabs of color covered the windows of the structure Dior set up yesterday in the grounds of the Musée Rodin.
