Dior’s Spring Summer 2016 campaign has made all heads turn with its latest collection which boasts of Raf Simons’ final ready-to-wear creations. The French luxury fashion house brings back the romance in the upcoming season with designs that are airy and delicately pleated, featuring strong contrasts. The collection swings between avant-garde and timeless femininity which is extended to the accessories too.
Set off against the delicacy of a grosgrain ribbon, the new necklaces are embellished with a metal “8” pendant, in homage to the En 8 line from that first Dior show of 12 February 1947. Innovative level of design is also seen in the new Diorever and Diorama bags, the DiorSplit glasses and the point of the slingback pumps.
Celebrated French photographer Patrick Demarchelier pairs looks in color with portraits in black and white for the latest campaign. Models Sofia Mechetner, Roos Abels, Staz Lindes, Maartje Verhoef, Grace Hartzel and Binx Walton had their windblown hair done by Duffy and low-key makeup by Peter Philips.
WWD also reports that Dior’s spring 2016 campaign will show up January 19 in Harper’s Bazaar in the U.S. and In Style in Korea, followed by Harper’s Bazaar Japan, Vogue France and Elle China the next day.
