This was seen as one of the more modern couture collections seen this season, with women walking the runways in graphic dresses, simpler fabrics, all done with fearless modernity not seen by Dior in a long time. Raf Simons designed the collection in four capsules, focusing on Parisian savoir-faire, American sportiness, Asian architecture and tradition and African freedom of decoration, with a focus on Masai inspiration. “The basic idea for me is that I like the idea of freeing up couture,” Simons said before his show.
Simons presented his various motifs not in distinct groups but all mixed in, and shown in a four-sided arrangement that left little time to linger on a given look, to take in its intricacies of design. That’s perhaps one reason why a red cold-shoulder mink stood out as one of the show’s stunners.
