Spring, Sparkles and Flowers
I really think Christian Dior (The original) must smile from where he is, specially since Raf Simons took over his beloved “maison“, contrary to Yves Saint Laurent (sorry Saint Laurent Paris, now). The most beautiful shows I have seen in the last year have been Dior, feminine, beautiful, respecting the codes of a legendary house but sparkling it with modernity and why not taking it a step further into the future (Dior for the new Millennium) . As we get into spring more and more, even though here in Paris it seems to come and go when it comes to the temperature, I felt it was time to make the complete post of Dior’s Haute Couture last show that was an Ode to the blossoming spring (I shall add in the middle of a snowy day in Paris last February), it made us all dream :). From the impeccable short hair of the girls, the details on the dresses and the forest feel, we all ended up saying bellisimo! and even after causing such an impression in the audience Raf keeps that humble/shy feel that is bigger than him and makes him even more admirable.
