Dior’s Fantasy Fashion Garden Party

Raf Simmons presented his third ready-to-wear collection for the House of Dior this morning at Paris Fashion Week and with the eyes of the fashion industry upon him, he delivered a garden party event to remember.  As if the ceilings of the Musee Rodin overflowing with exotic flowers in bloom wasn’t impressive enough, the brand’s presentation of sheer skirts, perfect pleats, metallic floral prints, and blossoming ball gowns exceeded the expectations of fashion lovers around the world.

“I wanted to sense this season of a particular type of women, a distinct new tribe, sophisticated and savage at the same time,” said Raf. “I wanted to feel that you wouldn’t know quite where these women were coming from and where they were going to, that they exist in a new place of change and possibility.”

Contrasting Couture

Our first two brands, Balenciaga and Lanvin, to show this season at Paris Fashion Week, couldn’t have been more different in their stylistic approach to designs, representing both ends of the trend spectrum for Spring 2014.

In his second round as the Creative Director for Balenciaga, Alexander Wang presented his Spring 2014 Collection using the structured classic shapes that the brand is known best for, while introducing floral patterns and pastel-colors, an outside of the box twist for the brand.  The tapered silhouettes reflected in the cropped tops and peplum pants, all stemming from woven fabrics with molded leather accents, gave the street-wear designs a feminine contemporary spin.  “The idea was to start strong and austere, and let that unravel,” said Wang.

In contrast to the soft and ultra-feminine collection that Balenciaga presented,  Alber Elbaz pushed the envelope with Lanvin’s Spring 2014 Collection with his metallic, lamé and satin fabric selections.  The show’s pale green, peach, raspberry and maroon color palette was softly embellished with crystals to add a more va-va-voom effect. "I never thought of myself as rebellious. I do think about what people want. People look for a dream and for fantasy in fashion," said Elbaz.
