Raf Simons, the creative director of Dior fashion house resigned last autumn. And ever since the fashion house is running without a creative head. And to participate in an event as big as Paris fashion week was quite a responsibility. Producing a phenomenally splendid result without a creative head seems next to impossible.
It happened in the recent A/W16 Paris fashion week. The credit must be given to the Christian Dior fashion house. You may disagree with me. But after a deep glance into the whole fashion collection, I can’t live without appreciating the fashion house and the talented designers, who worked tirelessly to make it a win. And its a win, to great extent. Lets have a look at the latest trends introduced as well as what old trends are revived with a touch of modernity.
Jackets & Blazers
Dior has come up with a very chic and stylish interpretation of jackets, coats and blazers. Both in plain and patterned styles. Especially the bar jackets and peplum jackets. The cut, the style and the hues seem great. Some jackets with off the shoulder neckline seem innovative. Swing coats also made their mark, a few with sloping neckline. Rihanna also appeared in the fashion show, wearing a chic peachy pink jacket.
Floral prints, though most popular in spring/summer but Dior has experimented successfully with the floral touches in dresses which again seems great to eyes.
Dior presented nicely stitched and elegantly hued high-waist skirts, slashed narrow skirts and some dresses with uniquely folded necklines.
The fashion accessories that were mostly noticed from Christian Dior are shoes: lace up ankle boots, pointy toed boots, stylish handbags with light detailing and embroidery. Most of these bags are with wide bandolier straps to hold. Another unique accessory introduced was the sunglasses cases with straps to hold it. Sunglasses with round frame are more trendy. When it comes to jewelry, models walk fully loaded with earrings, rings and ear cuffs.
Color Trends Followed by Christian Dior
Almost all the models on the fashion runway had darker lips. As far as dresses are concerned, you will mostly witness the hues like dark or cream. To give it a more lively touch, pops of green or orange were seen. Some dresses looked elegant, paired with leopard prints.
