Christian Dior Fall 2012 Couture Collection

Ok so I don't usually do catwalk collection posts - or even touch that much on high fashion at all, but I just saw the Raf Simons debut collection for Christian Dior Fall 2012 and I really like it. Nearly all of it in fact, obviously with ever collection there were a few pieces I just didn't get, but this whole collection is so beautifully understated and well tailored I really would wear 80% of it myself, if I could afford it of course!
Considering its a Couture Collection it is very tame - its almost more ready-to-wear in my books but I really love that fact I suppose, you could literally take any piece and wear it. It almost feels a little more like Chanel rather than Dior in places though, which I'm not sure is actually a good thing. Lots of beautiful structured garments and almost androgynous suit tailoring, which is so perfectly executed!

Anyway I am in love with so much of it this is going to be a image heavy post. Here are all the outfits I really liked!
What do you guys think?

 How simple but beautiful is the above dress? I really would love to wear something that well tailored!

 Another stunning dress, the navy is a little cuter than plain black and it would be totally wearable to a formal even

 Such a cute look, pretty feminine colours and simple 50's style tailoring - again a cry to Chanel?

So ladies what do you think of Raf Simons first Dior collection? Has he done the label proud?
I actually like that he didn't go totally way out, Dior is a classic label and doesn't need to shock to impress people. I think he did a beautiful job and created some stunning garments

Would you wear this collection if money was no issue?

As I don't usually cover high fashion much, would you like me to cover more of the Fall 2012 collections in the future weeks? Id it something that interests you, or shall I stick with the things I usually cover? I'm interested in what you guys would like to see more of.

  1. Oh, wow! I love the pink strapless top/dress and black pants!

    How have you been, Chantelle?

    Hope you're having a great week! :P

  2. Wow I really love this collection! You are right, they do seem wearable. I am wondering if there is some kind of hip padding going on in a lot of them. They really seem to reflect Dior's New Look era too.


Thanks for reading. please leave comments as they really make my day, and I try to visit every one of your blogs too!
