Why I Love Dior

tribute season has long started (actually the first stores have already been closed again) thats why i thought i took this last chance to write about this years summer tribute stores and to make it a bit more interesting i made it more into a little love letter to a certain fashion house than review of SDs DIOR tribute store.

Dior is a fashion house which not only created a look of the past but still belongs to the most important fashion houses in the world. its name stands for elgeant quality and pure feminin beauty. CHRISTIAN DIOR took the scene by storm because he understood that it was time to change how women where dressing. he had his breaktrough in the late 1940s a time which still smelled like war.  he had the guts to take a step in a new direction, and demonstrated his believe in a bright future. he was the creator of the "new look" which means that he concentrated on a new shape for womanswear creating a so called sandclock silhouette. 


now that i told you a bit about the house of dior you already know some of the reasons why i love it.
another reason is RAF SIMIONS a belgian fashion designer who took the lead after JOHN GALLIANO left (because of this really ugly incident). raf simions, who before he came to dior did wonderful things at JIL SANDER lead dior into a different kind of direction than galliano did. he moved away from the dreamy fantasy world and placed diors style in a more sophisticated modern-art-world. another big change for the lable but just as christian diors bravery so many years ago lead to a deserved succsess so did the decision to choose simions as a new creativ director.

but now on to the SD version of dior. SD oriented its tribute collection at diors 2014 spring haute couture collection. a collection mostly dominated by black and white, light and slightly see through fabrics. a style SD followed with their digital version of the collection. however the only real crtitc i have is how SD handled the few colors that did come up in the original collection. simions used some mint and pastel tones to underline the lightness of his gowns. colors that reminded you of fresh air, clouds and wide skies. SD decided to use … pink … yeah pink! this color issue is so old and i have complained about it so many times i'm just sick of it. so i decided to just ignore those pink nightmares and concentrate on the other items.

those are the things i decided would be a great addition to my medolls wardrobe. i really liked the white dresses looking like floating clouds and even though they are inspired by a haute couture collection i still think they are extremly wearable. 

dior is timeless, elegant, modern and sophisticated fashion and thats what makes the lable so important for the fashion scene and since raf simions has taken over dior also made his way back into my heart, his clean yet playfull way of shaping the present impression of a traditional fahsion house just makes him a more than talented fashion designer and is the reason why … i love dior.

so long
