Simons For Dior...
And so after almost a year of speculation and rumours it has been announced who shall take the helm over at the house of Dior. Massive round of applause to Raf Simons! After leaving Jil Sander back in February, Simons has since taken on role of artisitc director for Christian Dior. Filling the shoes of John Galliano, his first collection will be shown during Couture week in July!! Never a dull moment in the world of fashion!!
Simons recently told Vogue, "Mr Christian Dior has always been for me the most inspiring couturier. Around the globe, the name Dior symbolises the ultimate in elegance and refinement. I am truly humbled and honoured to become artistic director of the most celebrated French house in the world." Simons will only be the sixth designer to be the head of this established brand, following in the footsteps of other greats, YSL and Gianfranco Ferre to name just a few! Simons wishes to bring his own point of view to the label, bringing in to the modern day but also with hints of the past, referring to this as 'mid-century modernism.' He has a particular love for the years spanning 1947-57, highly romantic and feminine, but at the same time constant changes in shape and proportions in all aspects of life.
I think this is most definitely the start of a new era for Dior!
Be prepared for it's re-emergence into the fast-moving and ever-growing 21st century!!!Xxx
