Christian Dior Spring/Summer 2016 Couture
First After Raf Simons’ Departure
Dior showed its first couture collection after the departure of Raf Simons’ back in late 2015. The collection was designed as lead by two designers who made a quick appearance on the runway, Lucie Meier and Serge Ruffieux. The designers followed the legacy of Raf Simons’ and the design codes of the Dior house with elegant dresses, the corseted structure and fit-and-flare silhouettes. What they missed was a sense of grandeur with ball gowns to close the show. However, they have done a good job at continuing the feeling of a younger, modern Dior woman.
