Dior’s Spring Garden – Amidst a runway show featuring a setting of hanging flora, the spring 2014 collection from Dior similarly embraced the floral theme whether it was quite literal with prints or more abstract with shape. Raf Simons has reinterpreted the house’s DNA for the past several seasons, and now it looks like he is bringing his own unique stamp to the brand. The spring preview implemented emblem decorations which adorned the iconic Dior “Bar” jacket. In fact, decoration was a main theme of the show, whether with bold prints or dresses embellished with colorful sayings like, “Primrose Path” or “Ultra Violet Mouth”. It was a change from the minimal restraint Simons has shown in the past. For the finale, models walked in black suiting decorated with kaleidoscopic patterns or silver jacquard dresses.
