Dior Haute Couture Spring-Summer 2014. 4 min Snapshot.

Hiya All,

Fragrance is what takes up most of my brainspace but I also love fashion. Though I will never be rail thin, super rich or ever invited to be one of the Haute Couture clients (yes invited, it’s an invitation only experience) still I love the flamboyance and often unwearability of the runway shows and then later the trickle down effect where two or three seasons later I notice a particular thing that I thought ridiculous or totally innovative or terribly unfinished walking the streets and being sold on high streets everywhere.

Here is a four minute snapshot of Dior Haute Couture Spring-Summer 2014. What did I notice? I loved the cut out fabric reminiscent of the cheap nylon curtains that we used to have in our garage as children. The sheer glitter knee high socks, asymetrical but unmatching fabrics, the single cut drape from a miniskirt front to floor length back, the gathered backs of the jackets which meant they float out as you stride. SO MUCH! I think Raf Simons is doing a great job.

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Dior!

    The movement and textures of the fabrics was beautiful. Loved the pastels and of course the BLACK!

    What an innovative collection. A number of pieces looked not only wearable, but comfortable! Loved the blousy lace dresses for a hot hot summer day and the suit with cut-out fabric and bell sleeves is a classic. (My mother might have rocked something similar on a smaller tighter scale in the ’40’s.) Well done! It’s sure to be copied at all price points.

    I loved that!! The ‘trick of the eye’ with the cut away fabrics was so feminine and mysterious. There were a few black dresses that I just loved. Thank you Portia!

    Love the one at 2:50. It’s like an outfit made out of lots of batting eyes lol!
