Dior’s pump from the Spring 2013 shoe collection is an exceptional example of the minimal, sensual and feminine woman that creative director, Raf Simons wanted to recreate for his Ready to Wear debut. The futuristic pump, with the curved heel and metallic details, echoes the aesthetics of the ‘New Look’ that Monsieur Dior made widely popular.

“He embraced the feminine, the complex and the emotional. I wanted to do that too,” says Raf Simons of Christian Dior.
