Raf Simons appointment as CD of Dior has been welcomed by the fashion community and his latest offering for FW2013 is no different. Simons has explored the heritage of the fashion house and has used this as the cornerstone of the shows he's done thus far. That being said, we're slowly starting to see him injecting his own design codes, which I'm ecstatic about. Simons is known as a utilitarian designer and this season reflects just that. I love how the looks are practical and feminine - pieces that you can see any woman wearing on the streets of New York, London or Paris. I think what made this collection so special as well is the collaboration with The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, which you'll find in the recurring hand-drawn motifs on chiffon wisps of dresses in white and black.
J'adore! Brava Mr. Simons!
