If it’s Christian Dior and Raf Simons longing to create ultra-fresh and unique garments, then the results can’t but be breathtaking. It did happen once more, as Christian Dior unveiled the flabbergasting Christian Dior Couture spring/summer 2014 collection. Talking about it, the designer noted, “I was thinking about taking the theatrical out and taking it more into reality. As a designer, you have a responsibility to do both — to trigger her fantasy with the show, but give her the reality as well.”
This makes a clear statement about the main principle according to which the Christian Dior Couture spring/summer 2014 collection has been designed and styled. That is, the wearability and the practical value of the garments are just as important here as the chic and the elegant looks. Mainly concentrating on dresses, and focusing the color palette around black, white, and grey shades, the skillful designer managed to create indeed fascinating apparels, which are suitable for securing your party looks, at the same being universal for a wide range of other occasions, too. It all goes around the impressive ways of combining the design patterns with the curious cutouts, giving birth to unique shapes and textures. Similar techniques have been applied not only to the dresses, but the pants plus suit pairs too.
The shapes of the patterns and the cuts generally repeat themselves, presenting semicircles, geometric shapes, etc. The oversized looks especially for the sleeves are well noticeable here, too. Another spectacular aspect catching our attention is the use of the delicate fabrics, mainly of chiffon-kind that create the weightless effect of many of the pieces, looking maximum chic when combined with sweet floral prints.
Thus, from floor-length and fluttery, to medium and mini length of the dresses and from multi-layered fabrics of full skirts to pants and top pairs and jumpsuits, the Christian Dior Couture spring/summer 2014 collection offers the biggest diversity of options you could ever imagine. Just have a nosey and make sure you include your favorite options in your wishlists!
