Paris Haute Couture: highlights from Christian Dior

Posted on

Christian Dior’s show took place in a circular ballroom in the garden of the Musée Rodin, constructed specially for the occasion with 150,000 orchids studding the metallic walls. 

Simons opened with a series of all-white looks, with corseted shapes up top, which expanded into elaborate skirts featuring delicately embroidered floral motifs. 

These were followed by rivet-belted jumpsuits with asymmetrical details (more embroidery) and air force-style zippers, long double-breasted coats in neutrals worn with colored trousers, and shorter single-breasted versions in cropped fur. The show ended with a focus on colored heels and a neat interlocking ribcage detail on dresses and tops.
