Paris Haute Couture SS15: Dior Accessories

Retro additions

This week at Haute Couture Fashion Week in Paris, Raf Simons presented a daring couture collection for Christian Dior, taking us back to the fifties, sixties, seventies – but the Raf way – with his unique silhouettes, futuristic fabrics and bold accessories...

According to Dior couturier, Raf Simons, he chose the most significant styles from each era he looked at for his Christian Dior Haute Couture Spring/Summer 15 lineup: "The romance of the 50s, 60s experimentation and freedom of the 70s," – which he showcased beautifully through the detailed clothes and accessories.

One of the first things you noticed as models strode out on to the scaffold runway were the striking shoes – bright latex boots with an architectural metal heel which resembled a see-through rectangle. However, as impressive as the boots were, Simons also channeled some Paco Rabanne inspiration in the form of colourful plastic hoops, seen weaved through different hairstyles, along with a few of the dresses.

Tops, skirts, second-skin catsuits (David Bowie-inspired) were also sprinkled with sequins or richly embroidered with other-worldly flower patterns, as Mr. Simons took us back to future.
