Minimalist meets Couture
After several months of suspense the wait is finally over, WWD has announced that Raf Simons will join Christian Dior as the new Artistic Director for the Ready to Wear and Couture lines, and succeed to John Galliano.
Raf Simons was most recently designing for Jil Sander and has his own label. The choice is kind of surprising but definitely exciting! How does the minimalist, avant garde aesthetic of the Belgium designer will merge with the French house couture’s direction? Well until next Paris Fashion week, let your imagination guide you with these similar looks from the two brands, coincidence or predilection?
