Christian Dior has released its 2015 haute couture collection for Fall/Winter at Paris Fashion Week 2015.
Raf Simons mission was to "transform clothes into the heavenly delights and the earthbound pleasures contained in Hieronymus Bosch’s early-sixteenth-century triptych The Garden of Earthly Delights, housed at the Museo del Prado in Madrid." -Vogue
The designs were all about layers, there were cape-like coats with single fur sleeves and pleated linings.
"There were draped cowl tweed collars that touched on his eternal interest in mid-century design flourishes. The seventies silhouette, given a sharp and impressive spin here, worked the traditional Dior Bar jackets into looser tailoring worn with puddling flares in most un-couture like corduroy; some of those coats and jackets bore a new sleeve shape worked to reference that iconic 1947 jut-hipped jacket. Meanwhile, the glittered up platform sandals screamed club kid. And Simons drew on the late-nineteenth-century art technique of Pointillism, turning print, embroidery, hand-painting techniques, and plumes into gently pastel-toned floral patterns which revealed their origins the closer you got to them." -Vogue
