Is it nice? Good? Beautiful? Of course, but the Christian Dior Ready to Wear collection for Spring/Summer 2014 seems to be quite extraordinary while being modest and unpretentious. Fashion designer Raf Simons is a pioneer when creating new trends and he is now making his own world as a creative director for Christian Dior. So why should we really fall in love for this collection?
TIMELESS PIECES: If you like classic Dior, you can find a new version of the curvy, fitted black bar jacket among the amazing pieces in this collection. This is a classic garment that can look well in everyone.
COOL GRAPHICS: We saw word art on the runway with the collections of Alexander Wang, DKNY or Christopher Kane. Raf Simons used it across full skirts on black and red strips. Sayings like "Primrose Path" or "Ultra Violet Mouth" were applied over classic prints, giving it an absolute edge.
RICH COLOR PALETTE: Vivid shades of color like shiny orange and bright green coexist with tender tones like soft mauve, blush pink and camel. They look so fresh and cool when combined together.
MULTIPLE FORMS: There are so many different shapes and textures. Striped lantern skirts, unusual pleated shorts and pieces with revealing cutouts at the waist. They are all so different but wearable.
EDGY FLOWER PRINTS: We've seen floral prints for a few seasons. Last Summer, they were soft, but now they look darker. The season brings more graphic prints with a sporty chic feel. When combined with edgy slogans and words, Christian Dior's florals become more casual and modern.
Are these good reasons enough? If not, see for yourself.
