Christian Dior Spring 2013 Collection: Raf Raises the Bar

January 16, 2013

It certainly didn't take long for Raf Simons to find his groove at Christian Dior ? and who in fashion can say they?re surprised? With equal measures of modernist creativity and respect for the brand and its old master, Raf is the man to usher in an invigorating new era at Dior.

The new Bar bag, with its slick T-bar handle, is one of the most original and exciting bags I've seen in years, perhaps since McQueen's iconic knuckleduster clutches. This is simple sophistication (with an avant-garde twist): a formula Raf has been known for throughout his expansive career. Now it?s not just the clothes ? like Spring 13?s New Look jacket-dresses and ray-of-light patterns ? that are paying a new-millenium homage to the old guard. The Bar is a modern interpretation of the House of Dior?s storied heritage: it?s a riff on the iconic Bar jacket from the ?50s. Inquire at Dior.
