Haute Couture Autumn/Winter 2012: Raf Simons' debut for Christian Dior

The fashion world waited with baited breath for this collection, Raf Simon's debut at Christian Dior, and they weren't disappointed. Personally, I couldn't get over the beautiful floral 'rooms'/sets! One more beautiful than the other...Christian Dior's own obsession—flowers—was translated into salons lined ceiling to floor with panels of blooms: delphiniums in the blue room, orchids in the white room, mimosa in the yellow room, etc.

My favourite pieces were the streamlined rounded tailored ones, especially the black looks, and the deep-pocketed red cashmere coat dress (just gorgeous)! I think my absolute favourite was the sleeveless coat dress with 'feathered' skirt':

My favourite piece in this collection!

What did you think of this collection? Any favourite pieces?


  1. My fave is the dress in the 5th last pic... Beautiful collection & beautiful backdrop x

  2. Absolutely beautiful! I love love love the dresses with different fabrics and the blue full bloom skirt with sheer black top... *sigh*

  3. He did good--like a continuation of his JS finale. The flower wall looks beautiful. I must say that I really like the way Margiela obscures models faces, I think in the case of Dior here the models' faces are very off-putting to the clothes.

  4. Beautiful collection mostly. Adore the pink / red graphic print dress, so lovely. And can easily see the yellow gown being an Oscars contender.

  5. even though the collection was outstanding, i can't help but want those amazing floralized walls in my own abode. i imagine the aroma would be incredible. of course it'd only be complete with an open ceiling.
