Silhouettes re-weaved their way through the 5 private salons at the the Christian Dior haute couture autumn/winter 2012 show today at Paris Haute Couture Week. Flowers, one of Christian Dior’s obsessions, was the central point of the set.
The collection, designed by Raf Simons, consisted of fur, confetti, and velvet. Here are some of the looks:
A “Dior Red” cashmere “Bar” coat with a Dior basque on the hips.
An electric blue astrakhan fur bustier cocktail dress.
Black tulle bustier evening dress with blue velvet embroidered.
The classic Dior tweed re-worked by Simons in a grey Prince of Wales checked wool jacket and skirt.
This white organza dress, inspired by the original Miss Dior dress, is embroidered with “Pointillists” degrade chiffon.
Hundreds of tiny confetti are embroidered to reproduce the flowers of Miss Dior.
A long organza and tulle dress with ‘futuristic’ pink embroidered front and blue floral embroidered back.
