MY:VIEW Raf Simons for Dior SS13 Ready to Wear Collection

Anyone who reads my blog regularly knows I love Raf Simons, having posted on his couture collection here and also named Jennifer Lawrence my Look of The Week in this outfit a few weeks ago, so I thought it was only right to post about his show at Paris Fashion Week.

Some of the ideas he included in the couture show were also present in the ready to wear, including strapless dresses worn over slim trousers, and the huge skirts, although slightly slimmed down and lengthened. Then there was the famous peplumed Bar jacket worn as a dress; silk T-shirt dresses with asymmetric trains, some veiled with tulle tunics and a line satin dresses, as a nod to 60s Dior. There was a lot of movement with gorgeous layers of organza, sometimes as many as six in a single dress, and the bias cut pleats on the peplumed jackets and mini skirts were inspired by Christian Dior's architectural pleating from the 1950s, which resulted in a collection that Simons described as being inspired by “sex, freedom, movement, sensuality, minimalism.” (oh-er!)

Here’s a few of my favourite pieces. I particularly love the strapless dresses over shorts (really easy to copy with a tied kaftan -  look I’ll be trying to copy as soon as weather permits), and love this yellow asymmetrical peplum.

I’d love to know what you guys think!
