Dior Spring 2014 Haute Couture–Raf Simons delivered his own vision of ladylike elegance for Dior Haute Couture’s spring-summer 2014 collection. The new collection offers a strict color palette of bright white, soft pastels and midnight navy or black. For spring, the Dior woman also embraces prints with an array of spots featured on floor-length gowns as well as more textured effects including circular cutouts or 3d embellishments. Simons excelled when it came to more minimal pieces such as a dress featuring a short, A-line skirt and demure neckline modeled by Diana Moldovan.
