Paris Fashion Week always brings forth beautiful, couture designs from some of the world’s most classic and renown designers, and the Fall/Winter 2013 Christian Dior show was no exception as Raf Simons delivered his successful second ready-to-wear collection.
Simons created a runway set inspired by pop art as well as surrealism, even featuring a collaboration with the Andy Warhol Foundation to incorporate the Pop artist’s drawings of shoes, butterflies, and images of women embroidered onto handbags and dresses. The looks were intended to be modern enough to wear for every day, but also special and unique pieces of wearable art for special events. Simons played with patterns such as houndstooth in many of his looks, and incorporated a pop-art inspired floral pattern that is sure to be a notable trend in the upcoming months. Although I wear dresses infrequently, the F/W 2013 Dior collection featured beautiful feminine dresses, ruffles, and even a leather dress that caught my eye! As Dior was the go-to for the best-dressed celebrities in Hollywood this awards season, this collection will be the go-to for the best dressed women around the world come fall!
