Who would have thought that Dior and Brooklyn would have been mentioned in the same sentence? Sixty-six looks for the sixty-sixth American birthday of the French fashion house.

After two years of being Dior’s artistic director, Raf Simons has done it again. Merging the simplicity and elegance of parisian fashion with an a-typical New York City setting. The Duggal was filled with over a thousand guests from Rihanna to Marion Cotillard, to Christian Louboutin and Proenza Schouler’s Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough. A custom made elevated floor was constructed and the Manhattan views strived for attention with an LED display opposite of the warehouse space.

As guests arrived by water taxis and town cars, they didn’t quite know what to expect. Inspired by the silk scarf – le carré, as they say in Paris – the collection consisted of fluid, sculpted and molded silhouettes that were softer and breezier without taking away from the designer’s signature esthetic. The feminine silhouettes dwelled on ultra high waist lines, with long and lean trousers and flaring knee-length skirts. As for the top, backless silk camisoles in graphic and abstract prints were all the rave as were the draped layered tops with a geometric fit. With a strong vision for the company and maintaining its time-honoured look, Simons has really outdone himself!
