Christian Dior Spring/Summer 2014 RTW – Paris Fashion Week

An unknown and magical world has been recently discovered in Paris with the help of the Christian Dior spring/summer 2014 collection unveiled at Paris Fashion Week. “I wanted a sense this season of a particular type of women, a distinct new tribe, sophisticated and savage at the same time,” said Raf Simons, the creator of this wonderful world. “I wanted to feel that you wouldn’t know quite where these women were coming from and where they were going to, that they exist in a new place of change and possibility.” And that’s absolutely true!

The main thematic concentration of the Christian Dior spring/summer 2014 collection is around flowers. They are represented both in forms of designs and decorations, fake and in real. The types of flowers were quite diverse as well, including roses, hanging wisteria, branches, etc. “It’s that DNA that I’m very attracted to myself, like nature and some flowers, everything we know so well from the brand,” Raf said backstage. “It’s challenging to see how I can deal with those elements that we all think about when we think about Dior, but also twisting them around seriously.” The results of this experiment happen to be even more amazing than expected.
The silhouettes of the pieces vary from pleated skirts to coats and jacket-pants combinations, from tea length cute dresses to stunning lantern skirts with stapes loosely put from waist to knee, and from classic suit-and-pants variants to an amazing line of metallic shiny strapless dresses cut at tea level, being full or straight, with peplum designs or without. Folded and draped elements were one of the main techniques with some beautiful pieces. The V-necks and bateaus are other descriptive elements of the Christian Dior spring/summer 2014 collection. Sequins were chosen to match with one shoulder pleated dresses and in fact created really sky-touching and heavenly compositions.

So, the third collection of talented Raf Simons for Christian Dior is a perfectly prepared masterpiece including the traditional philosophy of Dior, and at the same time carrying the irreplaceable touch of Raf’s individual concepts, imagination and creativity.
