Dior Spring-Summer 2016 Collection

“I wanted the collection to have a purity to it,” says Raf Simons. “To simplify and concentrate on a line that expressed an idea of femininity, fragility and sensitivity without sacrificing strength and impact; there might be a simplicity in how the collection looks, but it is extremely complex in terms of technique. There are literal layers of the past, from the Victorian-style underwear layered under the transparent bias cut dresses and the Bar jackets and rough knits, but for me it still all feels oddly futuristic and strangely romantic. Like this woman is about to travel through space and time.”

“For this collection I wanted to look at something rougher and more natural than the garden,” explains Raf Simons. “At the same time, and just as in nature, I wanted to find a new kind of precision, purity and ease. A fragment of what is to come.”
