Christian Dior Fall 2012 Couture Collection

Like many fashion lovers, I was waiting for this show.  The Raf Simons debut collection at Chirstian Dior.  And it isn’t just any old collection, but the Christian Dior Fall 2012 Couture Collection.

Raf Simons last collection at Jil Sander embodied a lot of Mid Century shapes and this collection shows a continued obsession with it that fit nicely into the classic Christian Dior aesthetic.  But there was more.  There was embroidery and detailing that was a clear departure from his Jil Sander days.

But enough on my thoughts.  Check out some of the standouts for yourself:

  1. these gowns are BEAUTIFUL! ahh, so dreamy 😀

  2. Pure elegance . . . beauty without trying to hard. I love this collection!

  3. Pretty, flirty, girly. Me likey!

  4. I couldn’t wait to see this show. I think he did an incredible job. How beautiful is that strapless dress? xoxo

  5. I love how it all looks kind of like a mix of old fashion eras. ♥

  6. these pieces are grace kelly worthy – absolute perfection!

  7. I thought it was beautiful and definitely respectable, but is it terrible if I say that I was hoping for something more after the Jil Sander collection last season…I’m sure the cigarette pants are going to do great though.

  8. I am such both a Dior & Raf Simons fan, I really appreciated this collection.

  9. This really isn’t my personal style, but I am really loving the second-to-last picture. That dress looks like a modern day, high fashion Cinderella dress.

  10. These are pretty impressive pieces. I’m loving the almost 50’s vibe the pink dress gives off.
