Anna Wintour said to Grace Coddington: “Isn’t this amazing? A million flowers…” at the Christian Dior Haute Couture Fall-Winter 2013 show. This was Raf Simons debut collection for Dior Couture yesterday at Paris and the setting had walls completely covered with flowers – blue orchids, white mimosas, roses and more.
The Collection started out with black tailored looks, stiff peplums, wasp waists. Then came gowns with pointed bustlines, balloon skirts, tie-dye, feathers, hand beading. The ever-versatile cigarette pant and a strappy heel look like Fall/Winter staples. The collection had shades of Raf Simons’ Couture Trilogy for Jil Sander mixed well with signature Dior Bar Jacket.
