Raf Simon’s Fall 2013 collection for Dior was a collaboration with the Andy Warhol foundation. Warhol’s iconic artwork was printed on silk and beaded onto the clothes in the atelier. The entire collection was 40’s inspired with draping and sculpted details.
The key details were, The hounds tooth,The bustier, The full skirt, The bow at the neck , and The bustle.
Frame bags were printed with Warhol’s sketches. Shoes and flats were done in suede with an “Eye” embroidered at the toe.
An over the knee suede boot was embroidered with flowers and an indented heel.
Pieces were taken from the Dior archive and reintroduced in a modern way. The classic bar jacket was redone in leather and a wool coat with a flared bottom was draped and tied in a bow at the neck. Two bustier dresses, one with a pouf ,was also rendered in leather and the other embroidered with leather flowers.
The new Dior woman has a lot to look forward to with an art lover and modernist at the helm.
