Elegance and class – Dior is usually all about these two elements but this year the famous fashion house presented a collection which was an exceptional amalgam of these two words.

Raf Simons, one designer whom hasn’t shown much interest in history before, was surprisingly inspired by different periods of time ranging from the enchanting Belle Époque, an era that fascinated the founder of the firm, to the twenties, and the day when man stepped foot on the moon.
According to Simons, he wanted to show how certain periods influenced following ones.

The show was divided into eight sections, jumping from one century to another, yet the designer managed to combine the historicism of the collection with modern clothing. Simons presented an Haute Couture collection with wearable clothes for every day occasions. The long edwardian coats, the 50’s bar jacket, they were made more extravagant with shawl collars mixed with electric blue ankle boots that could still be worn by anyone at any occasion.

Overall, it was a captivating show: the rounded room filled with fashion lovers, the models made their way through the set to the sounds of Sonic Youth, presenting the pieces in a way which let everyone admire the construction and the intricacies of Dior’s Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2014 collection.
