I nearly spilled my coffee upon leaping to the keyboard to tap in style.com and awaited patiently for their photos.
I do realize that when Raf Simons was named as design head for the label, people were surprised. How could a man with such simplistic clean taste replace the hole that was left by the extravagant circus that is/was John Galliano? I feel this collection answered that question with a look that reflected the Danish designer's taste, but was SO refined and SO gorgeous that it echoed back to the Dior of the 1930s.
Stomping through a garden of delicate hedges, the Dior girl had a Rosemary's Baby pixie with jeweled encrusted red pout [courtesy of Pat McGrath]. She ranged her wardrobe from flower encrusted sheaths to pin tucked suits, to even a drop waist wedding gown.
I included what could only be WAY too many photos, but I loved the whole aesthetic of this collection. I only wish I could have been there to witness it!
