Haute Couture FW 2012/13 | Christian Dior by Raf Simons








Christian Dior Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2012/13 by Raf Simons

The fur evening dresses, a black mink bodice melting into a broadtail pencil skirt and an 
 oatmeal broadtail peplum tunic over a pantsuit lacked the unforced elegance that otherwise 
characterized Simons’s approach, but there were embroideries of fronds of black bugle beads 
densely sewn on their ends and tipped with scarlet or chrome yellow that were an exquisite evocation
of fur fronds. There were further quietly dazzling embroideries in the house tradition notably the tiny
organza blossom florets scattered in ombre formation over a full-skirted short evening dress, or
the clipped feathers applied in broad horizontal stripes of ice blue and soft beige to another
romantic ballet-length ball dress. There was subtle drama, too, to the dresses, with one
embroidery motif and color forming the front, and another the back, for a dramatic exit.

'Oil-on-Water' Afgh. Broadtail







Fashion had seen nothing like it for years. Outside in the street, there was hysteria. 
Inside, the industry's great and good Ala├»a, Elbaz, Jacobs, Theyskens, Tisci, Van Assche, 
Versace, von Furstenberg gathered to see Raf Simons debut his first haute couture collection for 
Christian Dior. That it would be a success seemed a given, what with the evolving polish 
and confidence of Simons' "couture trilogy" for his previous employer, Jil Sander. That it 
would be such a triumph was a thrill. The avant-garde outsider from Antwerp insinuated 
himself into the hallowed history of haute couture with a tour de force that had both emotional  
and intellectual resonance. As the man himself said, "A shift is happening."
