Maybe mine is different from yours and different from Raf's. Like Morphe said, it's all subjective
*do not quote images, please*

Ok I dont't want to sound mean or anything, but this is not futuristic. This is modern ok, but not fashion forward. You can see sensuality, but not sexuality here. Showing some legs does not turn a model into a vamp. Alexandre Vauthier's clothes are sexual and futuristic for instance ( and I dont't mean he is better than Raf Simons ).

As I said, people understand these concepts differently but I see what you mean. Maybe Raf's idea of sexy is bare legs and backs and dresses that barely cover one's @$$. Personally I am all about the cleavage and a nice curvy figure.

Raf Simons Working Fast to Make Dior More Like Chanel

Raf Simons says he's working on turning Dior into a brand that everyone in the world will recognize as soon as they see it — sort of like Chanel.

"The Chanel woman? I don't even need to see, I smell her from round the corner, but I don't recognize the Dior woman," Simons said in an interview for the January issue of Vogue UK. "I want to work on that fast. Chanel has the deux-pièces with the pockets, or the bouclé, but what is it for Dior nowadays? I can't say."

Eventually, Simons wants Dior to be something that appeals to a wide variety of people.
"Dior's ultimate obsession is that he wanted [the public] to wear it. I want them to wear it on the street," he said. "If it doesn't relate to the outside, then it would be very theatrical for me."

That mission — to make serious and wearable clothing for Dior — has guided Simons's short tenure at the French fashion house, and even extends to his couture collections.

"I want to get away from couture just being done for a picture, or for a single moment on the red carpet," he said in an interview with Vogue Australia last month. "I want to try and convince women that couture can be worn in the day and that there's a reality and a relevance there, because that's what Mr. Christian Dior wanted. In my opinion, Christian Dior was never, ever theater."

I really don't know what to feel about the interview. He's doing a great job for Dior and the media loves it, but the fact that he emphasized that "Dior is not theatrical" a few times in this interview ... feels like he's dissing Galliano's Dior?

I think it sounds really interesting. Can't wait to see where he takes Dior.

If you read the full interview in UK Vogue you can tell he's really trying to encourage his audience to participate in his vision, the point he made in the UK Vogue interview was that people associate the aesthetic of Dior with Galliano's theatrical outings for the brand and he wants the audience to understand what Dior was really about.

I don't think he's bashing Galliano's period at the house, he's more so defining what he will be doing under his reign, less theatrics and more wearability which equals to more revenue.

He doesn't need to reference the theatrics of Galliano to support his vision. I still think he's throwing shade.

^^ Yes, Raf sounded so corporate talking about differentiation, handbag profitability and all... Even lent us a peek into his newly adapted lifestyle as a sell out.

Well Dior without some theatrics Raf is F**** boring. Though Galliano lost his creative touch for few seasons, there is no denying he put some really highly artistic and beautiful collections, and I will always associate Dior with them. Raf's constant bitching and moaning that " I am modernizing Dior " "less theatrics" is getting old. I am not no fan of Galliano but you cannot deny the fact his presence will always loom large at Dior, nobody can take that fact from him.

I think you can talk about your vision without constantly referencing Galliano. It does come off catty. So many other designers have taken the reigns at houses and you only here kind words. I would have thought Raf could let his own work speak for itself but it seems as though the Dior team has gotten inside his head

Has anyone else spotted any closures of Dior Concessions? Today, I noticed in one of Selfridges Stores in Birmingham that their Dior Concession (which has been there since their opening back in 2003) has now closed and has been replaced by a Mulberry Concession, It wasn't until my friend noticed that perhaps LVMH are doing a Phoebe Philo/Céline with Raf at Dior now, launching exclusively in their boutiques keeping product availability to a minimum and therefore increasing the allure of the brand?

ON THE ROAD AGAIN: Now that the fall shows are over, it’s time to start making travel arrangements for resort. Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld are heading to Singapore to show their latest cruise collection on May 9 at a yet-undisclosed location. And Dior and Raf Simons are heading to Monaco for a resort show on May 18.
