I think he looks beautiful in the suit! Very chic. Reminds me a little of Christian Dior, the man, for some reason.

I almost don't find any of the themes Simons quotes in this video...Sexuality ? Future ? Freedom ?

This guy takes his job at Dior as an exercice. I don't see passion, or not yet...

These concepts are entirely subjective though.

I can't believe editors and buyers are getting so excited about the idea of a jacket that can be worn as a dress...as he suggested in the video, I mean how is that new or innovative? Have they never seen a coatdress, or a shirtdress? The level of BS and hype in the fashion industry never ceases to amaze me!
I will say however, that the Dior collection looks much better in motion, than it does in stills.

It depends on how you interprets the garments. I see Sexuality on the tailoring, Future on the fabrics and Freedom on the easiness.


style

Maybe mine is different from yours and different from Raf's. Like Morphe said, it's all subjective

I see sensuality here, moreso than in other collections usually deemed as 'sexy' or sensual. I also see future, i'm not sure i'm not seeing freedom but as already stated, these are very subjective concepts, who knows how Raf was trying to convey them

Wish I had seen that video earlier, the pieces look exquisite and totally make sense as he carefully describes them.. it helps that he has such a methodical, serene and respectful way of talking.

Random but any idea on who's the gentleman with white hair, sitting on the right in the video of the previous page?, is he related to the house in any way? judging by the way people look at his reaction, one would think he does.

You mean the one next to Princess Charlene? If so it's Bernard Arnault, CEO of LVMH.
