Dior SS15 Catwalk Show

Dior-SS15-Womenswear-01

Guests were transported into a futuristic spaceship venue set in the iconic courtyard of the Louvre Palace for the showcase of Raf Simons‘ Spring/Summer 2015 collection for the house of Dior.

Simons looked to the past and future to bring us the present for SS15. Traditions of haute couture were transported in the realm of pret-a-porter; taking inspiration from 18th century panniers, t-shirt bodices and justaucorps, combining traditional attire with uniforms of pilots, astronauts and school girls.

Bodices become skirts, jackets become blouses, micro-jacquards take the form of a digital grid and footwear is hand-knitted.

It was about the idea of addressing the different visions that people today consider as modern aesthetics, ” explains Raf Simons. “It seemed more contemporary to me to look towards a distant past rather than to modernize the spirit of recent decades.The challenge lay in lending a contemporary attitude to something quite historical, bringing simplicity and ease to something that might otherwise risk seeming theatrical.”
