Just one word: perfection.
Raf Simons showed with his first collection an hommage to the style of Christian Dior, the New Look, without losing his own minimalistic style. The show opened with black pantsuits, followed by cut ball gowns worn over simple narrow black pants. Furthermore there were ball gowns, strapless gowns, coat worn as dresses and dresses with different colors on the front and back. I really like the modern take on the fifties. Raf Simons did exactly what LVMH-CEO Bernard Arnault predicted: to bring the style of Christian Dior to the 21st century.
