Spring-Summer 2014 – Since it was founded in 1947, Christian Dior has become one of the most powerful and well respected fashion houses in the entire industry. So much so that even today just hearing the name ‘Christian Dior’ provokes images of sheer elegance and utter sophistication in our minds.
That said, Dior’s SS14 Haute Couture collection did not fall short of any pre-determined expectations. Whilst, for the most part, the colour palette consisted of black, white and navy blue, it was the occasional bursts of sweet, pastel shades and edgy, metallic patterns that gave the collection its true stand-out moments.
Moving on to the array of different shapes and fabrics present, it was clear that Dior had intended to create a collection with something in mind for everyone. As well as covering crisp white dresses in sweet, girlish frills, Dior toyed with hem lengths and experimented with laser detailing and floral print.
In the end the exaggerated skirts, fitted full-length gowns and sweet, swing, mini dresses all came together to create a collection that was both envious and covetable.
