Us fashionistas have been waiting with bated breath for Raf Simons‘ debut couture collection for Christian Dior & I’m sure noone was surprised to see Raf’s reworking of some classic Dior silhouettes. The show opened with a trouser suit whose jacket references Dior’s iconic 1947 Bar suit worn with a cigarette pant that proved a staple of this collection- shown in multiple ways; with jackets, under cropped & full-length strapless 1950s mood gowns.

Another couture collection giving us a history-of-the-house was Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel– signature tweeds fashioned in silhouettes from the 1940s through the 1980s. The clothes were for grown-ups but lurex tights & hair & make-up in the style of Alexa Chung brought a more youthful feel. The show closed with a spectacular white dress- ahhh couture.
