Christian Dior – Resort 2014 Collection
Raf Simons first Resort collection for Dior proved that a very dynamic future is in store for the french fashion house under his reigns.
The collection was showcased within a purpose-built minimalist structure in Monaco surrounded by views of the Mediterranean Sea, unseasonably stormy, which actually contrasted well with the edgy and slightly punchy colours of the collection.
“I wanted to do something with lace for a long time, but to twist it, create something more edgy, so it almost becomes futuristic,” said Simons
Pretty and delicate fabrics such as lace were met with an edgy injection of colour, silver foil panels which created a very sporty and modern feel. Undergarments were on show beneath a light layer of lace and sheer materials, something we have seen a lot of this season, and teamed with those shoes.. a wickedly twisted wicked witch of the west vibe!!
Fondly referred to as ‘sun wear’ this collection fits perfectly in your resort and summer holiday wardrobe.
