Raf Simons went on a time traveling journey when creating his latest masterpiece, his Christian Dior Fall 2014 Couture collection. Broken into 8 distinct sections and eras —  from the Marie Antoinette-inspired pannier silhouettes of the opening to astronauts’ jumpsuits, back to embroidered court jackets and forward again to twenties volumes. In between were the most exquisite coats and furs, sweeping to the ground, along with a slew of eighteenth-century frock coats, paired with narrow black pants that left me longing for my winter days in New York.

As Simon’s program notes explained, he was curious about how different eras of fashion edify and influence the forthcoming ones. After the show he further explained how he found himself thinking about Christian Dior’s fascination with the Belle Époque and asking himself, “If I had been [working] at that time, what would be my interest, conceptually or technically or architecturally? What would I be excited about?”

I know what I’m excited about – the grand floor length coats, the twenties inspired flapper dress whose lightness is achieved with high-tech resin fringe (below) and the ombre ankle boots in all kinds of delicious colors (see details below)!!
