Can we just discuss this magic? I’m posting all of my showroom photos on the .com blog.

This study, made with his partner James Black and copied from a daguerreotype, would seem to illustrate the astronomical maxim: the more clearly one can see an object in space, the more beautiful it looks.

Living in Canada this time of year can be unbearably depressing, especially when temperatures are reaching -26°C with the windchill. It gets to the point where it is so cold that the idea of Spring seems like a distant untouchable memory.
Thanks to Christian Dior Creative Director, Raf Simons, I have now been given a tiny smidgen of hope in the form of his 2013 Spring Haute Couture collection for the label. A lush garden lined with topiary trees acted as a runway for the models as they weaved their way through, many with bare shoulders and legs - a far cry from the snow covered Tuileries Gardens outside. Raf takes on Dior’s mythical femininity and pushes it further to the point that Spring is virtually bursting at the seams.
The iconic bar jacket made a brief appearance paired with slim, satin cigarette pants. Pastel hues and pops of neon green and pink were juxtaposed heavier black pieces as seen on the oversized dark peplum dresses that were paired with neon tights. Voluminous pieces were reeled in by controlled architectural structure and asymmetrical hemlines while others were left loose and rushed.
So thank you Raf. Tomorrow when I wake up and face the coldest day of the year thus far I will close my eyes and imagine your floral confections and know that Spring is but three months away.
