Femininity With A Modern Edge: The Dior Fall/Winter 2013 Show At Paris Fashion Week

Staying true to the classic ladylike Dior silhouettes, Raf Simons imagined femininity in a modern version, for the French brand’s Fall/Winter 2013 collection.

Outfits reminiscent of the New Look silhouette, with accentuated waists and ample skirts, were reinvented in black leather, while the classic, time-defying houndstooth pattern was transposed onto bustier tops and paired with soft silk. Peplum waists were sculpted out of soft wool, the Bar jacket was reborn in an edgy denim version, and a series of outfits were embroided or printed with graphic patterns representing early sketches by Andy Warhol.
