Very 'new look' era Dior. However, I felt that there was a certain spark missing, kind of lackluster.

Why not learn something about the brand history or DNA before yelling at a collection..
Your last sentence summed up nicely the majority outcry dislike for the collection!

Half Jil Sander RTW + half Dior Couture. Whatever, I'm looking forward to a brand new Dior-Raf's era.

This is just like the hating for Sarah at McQueen. Everyone says "this is not like the McQueen/Dior"... but no one really knows what McQueen or Dior were all about. Their history.
Dior is not Galliano. Dior is Dior.
My favourite looks so far are the jackets and the torso tight dresses. My only dislikes are for the shoes and the colour palette. I hate yellow and pink. But then again, personal taste.

I think you are all over judging Simons' work. It's his first COUTURE collection ever! I'm dying to see what he does next. This collection may be a tad dull, but there are a lot of wonderful ideas here, we can't crucify him just yet.

In the end, what most have come to identified with and loved about Dior isn't really Dior, but Galliano's boheme morphed into the Dior silhouette. Raf Simons went back to the core of Dior itself, that old-world elegance which would have been worn by royals like Kate Middleton, while he was expected to pick up where Galliano left. Perhaps he should have paid hommage to Galliano...

i don't think you can tell it's HC or not just by looking at it, you have to touch it, the details, see the process behind it.

well i guess so, i don't have the....competency to judge the collection, dior that i know is only by galliano, idk about their archive (like ysl's works)

For me it's that particular shade of pink and the bustier shapes that makes me think of his last collection for Jil Sander, nothing more. I don't know much either about Jil Sander before Raf nor vintage Dior, but the earlier dresses has a Dior-esque vibe enough for me. Sadly I don't think this collection is strong enough to stand out on its own, it's still like Gaytten's designs, we have to remind ourselves that this is "bringing the old Dior touches back" to make ourselves okay with it.

Anyway I'm no pro and those are just my personal opinion.

+ I really don't like the tye-dye-ish print. I'm surprised no one has mentioned their dislike to those prints until now.
