I'm surprised at all the negative reactions. I feel like this is very much what I expected Raf to bring to Dior - there is an elegance, a lightness and a timelessness to each piece. It is the most exciting stuff ever? No, but I wasn't expecting the pomp and circumstance that Galliano brought to the house. Maybe it is just me but I think that this quiet and restrained variant of refinement is exactly what Dior needs right now. This is tied to the past, but not slavishly so, there is still a modernity to this - it feels in line with the way many women are dressing now, elegant yet unfussy.
My thoughts are a bit jumbled on the matter, but I quite like this collection - there is a bit too much black and grey but the final gowns are breathtaking and that pink and black number on Julia Nobis, plus the shocking yellow number...perfection in my book. There was no way for Raf to please everyone (especially with expectations being so high) but I think he's built compelling framework, this is simply the foundation on which he can build.
What do I think about the way most people dress? Most people are not something one thinks about... - Diana Vreeland
