Dior Womens SS16


The quintessential Dior woman this season is romantic, gentle and natural; her hair in a light breeze, and never looks quite a strand out of place. Her dress is equally airy, at times delicately pleated, but her contrasts are strong as she plays along with futuristic lines and bold ambition. But this Dior woman always has lightness to her, an air of playful elegance in a meeting of timeless femininity and avant-garde boldness.

This seasons accessories also feature a modern, feminine boldness; the architectural lines of the Diorever and Diorama bags depict a modernist design that you can also find in the lenses of the DiorSplit glasses and at the point of the slingback pumps.

The necklaces, embellished with a metal “8” pendant in homage to the En 8 line from that first Dior show of February 12, 1947, are set off against the playful, grosgrain ribbon.

In this series of images shot by Patrick Demarchelier, who authored two tomes on the creations of the House, looks in color are paired with the celebrated French photographer’s favored medium of black and white portraits.

Certainly, even in black and white, this collection by Dior manages to come to life in the unveiling of the boldly beautiful, yet softly delicate Dior woman, who lives this persona through her gorgeous selection of Dior dresses.
