Raf Simons Adds Kink Aesthetic to Dior SS15

Raf Simons took Dior through a time machine and presented the evolution of fashion through the decades. Taking cues from David Bowie – someone who inspired change and liberation in the 70s – Simons managed to yet again prove that he is the current “center of change” in the fashion world right now. “He’s a chameleon, able to reinvent himself,” Simons says speaking of Bowie, “but he’s also the materialization of something else. More than a man—an idea.” While the collection includes tons of beads, wild patterns, quirkiness, and femme fatale (like signature Bowie) it seems as though Simons was describing his own alter-ego. His work merely presents pieces that are more than just fashion, they are ideas of our future and an experiment that had quintessential results. With 50s, 60s, and 70s styled looks, “Something wilder, more sexual and strange”, says Simons, was incorporated into the designs. O-rings hooking together dresses, latex thigh high boots with metal heels, and printed catsuits added edgy to a fun-loving collection. Dior once again has blessed us with a collection that goes beyond couture and is sure to inspire bridge and contemporary collections in malls across America.
