Dior Haute Couture Spring 2014
Ladies: we lead very busy lives. From bustling around cityscapes to hopping on trains to get to our next destination, it seems like the modern woman never sits down. So, for the Dior Haute Couture Spring 2014 collection, designer Raf Simons wanted that sort of movement to be depicted in clothing. In this thrilling set from beginning to end, Simons shows amazing couture pieces that not only incorporate the finest couturier techniques, but also the needed functionally in a working girl’s wardrobe.
Skirts, dresses, jumpsuits and suit sets are tailored to perfection, making this a collection couture lovers will most definitely want to have.
Each separate look is like its own little surprise. So many pieces consist of lovely sheer overlays that reveal gorgeous cuts underneath. Things are flouncy but not overly ‘frou-frou.’ These dresses aren’t the types to wear to a tea party…these are high affair, ‘look at me now’ stunners. Colors aren’t too wild and stay relatively basic, but they are perfect for this kind of dramatic tailoring. Pieces almost look like living sculptures, and when they’re worn, they move, breathe and take life. This is couture with the added functional bonus. There are some definite 60s influences (a la the mod scene) and it’s one that makes a lot of sense. Go-go dancers started a new kind of revolution, just like Simons has begun to do with couture.
Short, medium and long…the cuts are fabulous. The prints are delicate and feminine. Airy and free, any girl would be lucky to own one of these gems. We give this one a standing O. fdmLOVES DIOR Haute Couture Spring 2014 selects by Brigitte Segura, written by Allison Ripa.
