I would rather die than see Gaytten still at Dior. I mean, apart from his shoddy design, has everyone just suddenly forgotten Gaytten's first show at Dior? Which also happened to be couture? I have never seen anything so monstrous or contrived.
Raf Simons may be playing it safe, but he has seamlessly blended his transition from Jil Sander to Dior; he's repeated those pinks he used in his final collection, and he's embracing the trademark Dior silhouettes.
If Simons arrived at Dior with metallic A-line dresses and black fringed body-con pieces it wouldn't be Dior - he has to be Dior but be himself, both at the same time.
Give him a few seasons and I have faith that he will make the Dior icon a modern lady.
