In a tent erected in the gardens of the musée rodin, a ceiling of bright leds illuminates guests on arrival, with vip rihanna on the front row. this season, raf simons focuses on the city girl. perched in her pvc soled high heel stilettos, the designer demonstrates his expertise across suits reinterpreted in new volumes and new proportions with rounded sleeves with lacing down the side or on the back of bar jackets. the masculine-feminine look is works perfectly with gently flared jackets worn over fluid ruffled dresses. colours are bold and clashing, reflecting the playfulness of the show. these ‘femmes fleurs’ wear cashmere double dresses. the quilted silhouette emerges on ultra urban, modern puffa dresses. for the evening, t-shirt dresses embroidered with multicoloured gems close the show in style.a collection commended for its balance of wearable and innovative clothes, supported by the knowledge of the christian dior top-quality ateliers. as for raf simons, he is more and more in sync with mr. dior himself.interview:raf simons:we all know the bar silhouette and the ‘fleur’ silhouette very well and i think that the silhouette which is very defined in dior is a reality for certain moments in the day, week or month in the life of a woman but i think there were so many other moments which i also wanted to give, i want there to be the possibility for women to connect with dior in all those other moments and all those other moments can be a million things.i think that as a newcomer i was dealing with reality, i didn’t want to lose the focus on the fact that it is beautiful but also that the dior women are perceived as ‘femmes fleurs’ and i think i wanted to see how in a much more abstract way that i could think about a flower woman so less floral silhouettes with prints or graphics but just through the colours.with the matelassé, there were naked men and there was something very sexual going on which i found important. all of the jewellery was art deco inspired but at the same time, there were all these naked men and figurative chains, so it is like the woman decides and she play a big role in this show.music from the fashion show
