I would have written this post sooner, only I couldn't tear my eyes away from the pictures on Style.com. I have ooh-ed and ahh-ed at everything from Chanel and Valentino to Elie Saab and Margiela (that reveal, btw!) but nothing stopped me in my tracks like the silhouettes at Dior.
Taking everything that is iconic about the almighty French house and reinventing it for a modern day princess, serial modernist Raf Simons produced swoon-worthy looks that I only wish I could wear every day. Or at least for my wedding whenever that may be. The mix of Marie Antoinette-esque silhouettes with utilitarian boiler suits made for a collection rendering me speechless. Even the coats were on a bigger scale, with sumptuous wools to keep cosy this winter and intricate beading and resin fringing finishing off bold jackets and futuristic flapper dresses.
In short, how can I win the lottery or marry a prince because I need to wear this collection.
Every bit of it.
