Art Embodied at its Most Elegant
The 2015 Fall Winter campaign epitomizes Dior's distinct style.
In his 20s, Christian Dior exhibited works by Picasso, Dalí, Cocteau, Miró, Ernst, Klee, and Braque in his art gallery near the Champs-Élysées in Paris. Perhaps the simple lesson the future fashion designer learned from those provocateurs was that, when it comes to couture, looks cannot be deceiving; therefore, Dior’s use of lines such as Verticale, Oblique, Ovale, Longue, Profilee, and Tulipe were all instantly recognizable classics.
So it is with this season’s coolly urban Fall Winter 2015 campaign, as demonstrated by the exquisitely modern Dior women of the runway.
Fei Fei Sun and Julia Nobis are among the models who lend their insouciant beauty to the collection. It was designed by Raf Simons, the Dior Artistic Director, who is truly the heir of the fashion house’s visionary founder. Not only does Simons share the maestro’s affinity for the delicacy and refinement that epitomize Dior style, but he, too, is an avid collector who looks to artists for inspiration. In Simons’ breathtaking creations, originality and continuity sit side by side in perfect harmony.
