More from Raf Simons’ first show for Dior- the Christian Dior Couture Fall 2012 collection.
Black and soft pink were punctuated by acid yellow, fuchsia and cobalt blue to great effect. The voluminous citron colored skirt shown with a sheer long-sleeve top will be popping up on red carpets absolutely everwhere. These are clothes for the women who really shop for couture and for stars who can wear such strong clothes- Tilda Swinton and Emma Stone both come to mind.
I loved the soft full-length gowns that closed the show, beaded on the front in one color and pattern, and in the back with another. A brilliant way to give a nod to the past, while looking to the future of the brand as well. Bravo Raf! -RS (Images via WWD)
