Christian Dior Couture Spring/Summer 2015
Raf Simons is a visionary. A futurist. His modern vision is probably what landed him the top job at Christian Dior. His contemporary interpretations of future employed with Dior’s luxury techniques resulted in a technicolor feast at Christian Dior Spring/Summer 2015.
Fashion is overseeing a futuristic paradigm shift signifying the present era where people endlessly scroll, pause, click and upgrade their fashion. John Galliano, the ex-creative head at Dior showcased a collection with abundance of futuristic junk at Maison Margiela. Ram Simons opened his show with a printed sheer plastic coat paired with a short dress and latex legging-boots with Perspex hells. Latex legging boots in black and pop tones of tangerine, green, carmine and blues accompanied dresses in Raf’s signature A-line silhouette with sequined surfaces. The hair-do was yet another highlight where neat ponytail hung from metallic rings. Technicolor linear elements however became the eventual talking point of the collection. The lines appeared horizontal and polychromatic on full skirted ballerina dresses, sequined and vertical on short dresses and in zigzag patterns on catsuits. Here are some of my favourite looks from the collection.
