It is Raf Simons’ third season as creative director at Christian Dior. And it seems that he’s trying to twist the Dior-code a little bit to his own vision. That means: modernity. The designer Simons started with slicing the Bar jacket at the waist over vibrant silk floral shorts. Much of the show celebrated the Femme Fleur, and he kept the silhouettes lean and ladified, with cialis 5 mg subtle hints of the Fifties.
Where Simons broke away most clearly was in details of cut. He reconfigured a ballgown into a short lantern skirt, and finished a sexy striped shirtdress with a knot in back. Light, roomy sweaters offered an alternative to the more fitted lines that prevailed.
Raf Simons focused mostly on daywear, until the finale, for which the models all changed into either black tailored looks or short evening dresses. Rendered in silvery metallic floral jacquards in familiar silhouettes.
