Christian Dior Resort 2015
When I first started this blog, I wanted it to be a love affair with life and fashion celebrating the immortal union of the two elements that make me feel complete. Whenever the invisible connection didn't seem to work, my heart would crumble into pieces and suffer - after all, any form of visual dissonance is so difficult to accept, especially when the crowd has a different, often PR-enhanced, opinion. 

At the end though, it was my love for fashion that saved me from insanity. I've leant to accept mishaps and minute imperfections without giving up hope or loving something or somebody less, and instead document the process of never-ending fashion evolution that, without a doubt, is absolutely fascinating.

It's been three years since John Galliano left Dior and so far my emotional relationship with the brand has been a real roller coaster. It wasn't an easy ride, but I took it and am very glad I did. With the Pre-Fall 2014 came the light of hope and the most recent Resort 2015 presented by Raf Simons on 7 May  at the Brooklyn Navy Yard's Duggal Greenhouse turned that light into a dreamy fantasy filled with air, romance and beauty. 

I liked most of the 66 looks, the number that apparently coincided with the Dior USA anniversary.

I loved the idea of a scarf as the starting point for these designs - after all, it is one of my favourite accessories, so I welcome any reincarnation of the precious le carré. The way the archive-inspired printed silks softened the architectural and modern shapes was truly wonderful... Almost ethereal if you mute the sound. 

And lets not forget the fringed melange coat, sleeveless jacket, dresses made of lace and haze-like organza, and gorgeous shoes that completed this truly beautiful, youthful and wearable collection, my favourite Simons pour Dior so far.

  3. I agree with your thoughts Natalia, it was the same to me the last years about the Dior house. But already from the pre-fall collection my mind started to change and now the Cruise 2015 made my heart beats a lot. Love all the looks too and also the make up, I need to recreate it asap!:) Happy Weekend dear, hugs! xo

  7. I always look forward to resort collections. I really adore the second look, and the more structured melange coat/dress. The shoes are very cool as well.

  9. What a lovely and feminine collection! The House of Dior has certainly had some ups and downs since the departure of Galliano.

  10. For me, it's still hard to accept the idea of Dior without Galliano. But this collection is the first where I've thought, "Okay. This isn't Galliano but it still feels like Dior." There are pieces I don't love, but there are pieces that I most definitely do love. And that is a step in the right direction :)
