New look with the spirit of Pop and Surrealism ).
This was only Raf Simons’ second ready-to-wear collection for the house.
‘This collection is more connected to the passions we share,’ said Simons in his show notes of his ‘relationship’ with Dior. ‘Like a real interest in art – Christian Dior started his career as a gallerist and represented both Dali and Giacometti early on. The connection to certain periods of time is also significant, his obsession with the Belle Epoque in his case, the Mid-Century modern in mine. Here the connections made are important, the very idea of them rather than what they are; the attraction and obsession is the significant part.’
