Suiting Up With Raf Simons For Christian Dior

No contributor

Known for his gorgeous menswear craftsmanship, Raf Simons took his talents to the ladies for his latest fall/winter 2014-15 collection for Christian Dior during Paris Fashion Week. Such ironic feminine sex appeal comes from a woman donning an exquisitely tailored double-breasted pant suit, and Simons delivers a lot of this.

Four-button blazers falling just below the hip are paired with matching slim-fitting pants in either deep burgundy, emerald green, or black. Over the shoulder, or tossed over the arm are long coats in ultra mod color schemes of hot pink, cobalt blue, or canary yellow. This color blocking trend continues onto bell-shaped dresses and flirty mini skirts peeking out from under more double-breasted blazers.

Christian Dior fall/winter 2014-15

Corset-style lacing appears on the side torso of form fitting dresses and long suit-coats for added sex appeal, and in pure Dior fashion, big ball skirts were shortened to above the knee and displayed on a classic black gown that plunged deeply at the neck. A most glamorous collection without losing a bit of its cool.
