A New Era
Raf Simons' first couture collection for Dior, after John Galliano was dismissed from the house for his anti-Semitic rant, was a brilliant mix of old, new, and that grey area in between. He seemed to receive wide spread approval from the designers and editors in attendance, and has offered something fresh for the brand. The peplum waists were a wonderful silhouette, and a hot one at the moment. The craftsmanship was top of the line, of course, without being extravagant. The looks remind one of the couture seen on the Christian Dior runways of yesteryear. It was a beautiful collection, and I am eagerly anticipating his Spring collection for the house. Bravo Mr. Simons.
