Christian Dior spring/summer 2016 collection – Paris fashion week

1

French luxury fashion house Christian Dior presented their spring/summer 2016 collection today in the imperial grandeur of the Cour Carrée at Paris fashion week spring 2016.

Creative director Raf Simons stated: “I wanted the collection to exhibit a certain purity, collection simplified to the extreme.” Each look featured a similar base in white cotton, like a blank canvas on which the House’s Creative Director could compose his conception of the future. But behind this apparent simplicity lay the expression of the extraordinary savoir-faire of which the House’s ateliers can boast.

White tops and shorts, worn under jackets, dresses or knitwear, clothe a new kind of woman, and inject a sense of contrast. A woman who would unashamedly take from the male wardrobe, just as, in their time, the creations of Christian Dior mixed masculine codes with feminine cutting. She wears a long navy blue Bar jacket bare-legged, or replaces the vest of a three-piece suit with a tone-on-tone cropped top. She’s an elusive woman, whose refined and delicate underthings contrast with the solid aspect of thick-rib knits, casually shrugged on, with their sleeves pushed up. A woman, ultimately, whose modernity is expressed by a clever blend of past and future, pieces with Victorian inspiration and clothes subtly tweaked. Jackets are lengthened with fluid pleating to form hybrid dresses. Parkas are embroidered with glittering flowers. Suiting pinstripes are turned on the horizontal, sometimes migrating their way to dresses.
