As promised in my Raf Simons X Eastpak post, here is my Christian Dior Haute Couture post. As always really, this probably is my favourite Haute Couture show of the season. Especially for it was so clear now that after two rather safe, traditional-New-Look-Diorish collections, Raf dared to put more of himself into this collection. It's more conceptual, more avant-gardistic, yet as beautiful and intriguing as ever. It's as some say, 'the new couture'.
While watching the show I just couldn't help imagining what Dior faces Marion Cotillard and Jennifer Lawrence would look like wearing these beautiful pieces. I'd love to see Marion in the beautiful floor-length sequined column gown and Jennifer in the green ball gown. Hopefully during award season, as there's already some buzz surrounding their roles in The Immigrant and American Hustle respectively.
Don't you just love the backdrop of the show? Some of the biggest fashion photographers, including Terry Richardson and Patrick Demarchelier shot the models in this collection on the morning of the show. These photographs were projected. I wasn't particularly a fan of the aggressive beat, but the show definitely was very good as a whole.
