ACROSS TIME

10 July 2014

Ivory orchards and billowing ballgowns, the dreamlike world of Dior couture is enchanting. Mini Marie Antoinette's glimmered at the Christian Dior fall-winter 2014-2015 haute couture collection held at the Musée Rodinn in Paris. Discover the lavish highlights from the presentation that poetically traverses time.



The Christian Dior haute couture collection is a veritable voyage through centuries of elegance, both past and future. Raf Simons, Artistic Director of Christian Dior, presented an otherworldly exploration of couture, with the historical sprawl of the collection spanning influences from the 18th Century onwards.

“I was interested in the process of finding something extremely modern, through something very historical; particularly through a juxtaposition of different themes,” explains Raf Simons. “The historical inspiration is not the justification of the collection, it isn’t its entire meaning. What I was attracted to was an idea of architectural construction – that is a very Dior attitude – and how the foundations of one era are based on another, how the future is based on the past; that is what I found fascinating.” 

Models roamed the runway in princess-worthy couture creations. There were ballgowns, sweeping, long-line coats, miniskirts, embroideries and new tulle structures in a cornucopia of pastel colours – creams, pale pink, celadon green, and the most delicate of blues. The lavish highlights . . .
