Raf Simons’ collections for Dior receive a great deal of praise, no matter what he decides to use as main theme for his shows. I’m beginning to think that Raf Simons is the new Karl Lagerfeld. Is he not?
The collection he put together for Dior Fall 2013 follows the same black and white main lines we’ve seen earlier chez Balenciaga adding a pinch of pepper with gray and some strategically placed embroidered flowers and kitten heels shoes. Yes. You’re reading that right: Raf Simons brings kitten heels on bags, dresses pushing this cartoonish shoe rendition into a Dior symbol this season.
Like it or not, I’m pretty certain we’ll see it everywhere. That’s Raf’s fashion genius. Which is not to say that he forgets about the classic suit silhouettes or the lovely lady-ish skirts, the fancy bow details or his latest collections’ flowery fashion exploits. Addicting? You bet! Wait till you see the positive reviews pouring in!
