Looking to the past for inspiration, Raf Simons skipped the 18th century this time for something more contemporary with Dior’s spring-summer 2015 haute couture collection. It was easy to see the influence not only of Mr. Dior and his bar suit but also the works of André Corrège, Pierre Cardin (who trained with Dior) and possibly Bob Mackie for the show’s vertical striped sequined body suits. But even so, each ensemble could never be mistaken for anyone other than Simons. His sophisticated and unusual combinations of colors, fabrics and embellishments on meticulously tailored designs have become his own unique sartorial calling card. Pulling the eclectic looks together, the Dior woman wore patent leather boots with see-through heels ranging from ankle to thigh-length. View the gallery below.
