Dior // Fall 2012 Haute Couture
Raf Simon's debut collection for Dior provided the break in a dwindling saga that so badly needed to be put to rest. Raf's Couture Trilogy under label Jil Sander only strenghened the shift that Simons would make at Dior. There was a refreshing simplicity in the clothes that manifested; strong cuts and tailoring that mirrored the love of Construction that Christian Dior had. This time around, the ode to the New Look was delivered in fresh pantsuits with tops gently cuffed at the chest. It was streamline and very Raf. Not to mention the color palette was subtle:blacks, blues (cobalt to navy), whites, and the pale pink color that has such a daring lightness against the more somber fall colors.
