Paris: Raf Simons designed a collection that portrayed his ever-increasing creative confidence at the House of Dior. A riff on the The New Look Bar jacket became a blazer worn with matching trousers, extended into waist-coat dresses, or into coats cut below-the-knee. For cocktails, there was an array of loose, sleeveless cashmere shifts, and a lineup of sparkling cylindrical gowns. This was a collection full of impeccable cutting and dazzling color mixes – a perfect balance. – Lizzy Bowring
