Christian Dior

Paris: For Spring 2014, Raf Simons sent out the message “hyperrealness in the daytime” — and so it was! Floral silk dresses were pleated in sprays that fanned from high-waisted black tailored shorts, colour burst in profusion from striped tulip dresses and metallic sheaths were cut and draped diaphanously. It was all very elegant and modern. — Lizzy Bowring
