Raf Simons left nothing unconsidered for his Dior Spring/Summer 2016 Show today (02 October,2015), from the stunning venue to the starry front row. As for the clothes, they were a tender take on Dior house codes. Dior created a man-made hill in the center of the Louvre’s Cour Carrée covered with 400,000 delphiniums as its show venue this season.
The scene provided an elegant backdrop for Dior’s VIP arrivals, includingEmilia Clarke,Marisa Berenson,Elizabeth Olsen and Simons muse Hanne Gaby Odiele , who took to lying down in the flowers before the Show.
And then there was Rihanna . Wearing a Fall 2015 Haute Couture coat and aviator sunglasses, Rihanna took her way to the front row, drawing plenty of paparazzi Attention.
The show opened with Dior’s new favorite model, Sofia Mechetner. You’ll remember her as the Israeli teen who met Simons by chance in a Dior boutique and went on to sign a six-figure contract with the house.Every look was carried by the same shoe silhouette, an ankle-strap mule with a pointed toe and accentuated buckle detailing.The Dior sequin turtleneck from Pre-Fall 2015 collection – is the must-own item among the fashion set today-it will be soon replaced by the cropped sweaters with scalloped edging Simons sent out today.The sheer trend continued at Dior, with transparent floor-length dresses in stripes layered over prim ivory underpinnings.
