The Simply Luxurious Life®: Christian Dior – Fall 2012 Couture

Christian Dior – Fall 2012 Couture

With flowers that covered the walls at Christian Dior’s 2012 Fall couture show that would begin 40 minutes late, the audience didn’t seem to mind as they waited in great anticipation for Raf Simons’ debut collection since John Galliano’s abrupt departure just 18 months ago that upon displaying seems to have received an approving nod from most.

While adhering to the cinched waists and full skirt dictum of Dior’s past collections, he also kept it seemingly simple (similar to his tenure at Jil Sander where minimalism is expected), which as a couture expectation may seem odd except when hearing his explanation, “I'm not interested in just doing couture that works in magazine pictures. I want it to be relevant."  Have a look at the clean lines, cropped trousers, choked necks and strapless necklines – brilliant in all of its simplicity.
