Show Review: Christian Dior Pre-Fall 2013
By Faith

Raf Simons has settled into his position at Christian Dior quite nicely, and for his first Pre-Fall collection for the brand, he’s reworking the fashion house’s inimitable signatures with a modern spin. If Dior is known for anything, it’s sophistication and timeless designs. Simons’s latest creations fit the bill with the season’s popular suiting trend, houndstooth and Prince de Galle prints, the brand’s signature Bar jackets, and so much more. Though the fashion house has a tendency to play on fantasy, functionality really is a main focus, with pieces that will not only build up the modern-day woman’s wardrobe, but will work for a number of different occasions from work to play.

Feminine flair is given to menswear-inspired silhouettes with printed scarves tied elegantly at the models’ necks, red point-toe pumps, and structured handbags.

Though many collections for the season are saturated with outerwear and fur, Simons keeps jackets and coats to a minimum. A belted trench with an oversized collar and a wind flap, s black and white very chic fur coat, an olive fur-trimmed hood parka, and a sleeveless black fur vest are all that are offered, but they are honestly all a woman will need for the season: a very edited but completely wearable selection.

Prints please! Black and white houndstooth, Prince de Galle check, varying stripes, girly rose patterns: all these play in the collection on swing coats, mini skirts, and even red carpet-ready dresses. One of my favorite looks is a blouse and pencil skirt combination that just seems to be covered in a spotted print: when you look closer you can actually see that the pattern actually leaves tiny cutouts for alluring peeks of skin.

A Dior collection wouldn’t be complete without evening wear–some beautiful pieces are on display. Jessica Alba will look stunning in the strapless rose pattern gown with an asymmetric hem while I think a strapless striped flare skirt dress is practically made for Kerry Washington.

Any looks catch your eye?
