For this fall season’s Christian Dior Haute Couture line, the fashion house dug deep into the company’s past for inspiration. The Telegraph.co.uk called it a “subtle reworking of Dior’s DNA.” Check out the signature ‘Bar Jacket’ into black trouser suits, bustiers worn with pants, tuxedo-dresses, full skirted coats and dresses in Dior’s classic silhouettes. This collection was the debut of Raf Simons, the new Creative Director at Dior (a former industrial furniture design student whose last gig was at Jil Sander), who said after the show, “I’m not interested in just doing couture that works in magazine pictures. I want it to be relevant.” Amen brotha!
I'm a media strategist, fashion fan and whimsical event planner. For years, I've been "reporting" from fashion shows and fabulous events to my loved one out of pure joy. Unbeknowest to me in February 2012 my sister started kristysamone.com with photos and letters I'd sent her from New York Fashion Week. She said, "I think you need a blog!" LOL! I've been trying keep us with this and life ever since:) Thanks so much for reading!View all KristySamone posts.
