Season's Round Up # 12: DIOR FALL WINTER 2012 COUTURE COLLECTION
The Dior FW2012 Couture Collection has got to be the most anticipated show this season - mainly because it is Raf Simons' first showing as the brand's latest creative guru. All of fashion world is actually abuzz about his debut with the brand - described as a collection that pays homage to the roots of Dior, whilst incorporating modernity into it. Apart from that, Simons' trademark architectural take on fashion was stamped all over the pieces, ensuring though that it doesn't over power and stays the course of Dior's backbone of feminine elegance.
If you ask me though, I have a different view on it. I thought the collection was in it's entirety - safe. Don't get me wrong here, I think he did an excellent job debuting a collection in the amount of time he had and still staying true to the roots of Dior and his aesthetic as a designer. But that said, I honestly think he could've pushed the envelope a bit more. There's actually nothing much more to say from my end on this - suffice to say it was an underwhelming collection for me given all the hype & excitement. I guess I'm just not that into it unlike the rest of the fashion world.
