Princess Leia Plaits And Manga Make-Up: Your Need-To-Know On Dior’s Tokyo Show
Take a moment to marvel at the Pre-Fall Dior highlights...
First it was Chanel in Austria, then it was Valentino in New York and now it’s Dior in Tokyo.
Last night Raf Simons, Artistic Creative Director of Christian Dior showed his space-age Pre-Fall collection at Ryōgoku Kokugikan, a sumo wrestling arena seating 1,400 Dior-clad spectators.
And for the first show outside the traditional Parisian venue, it was the major fashion moment we’d all hoped for. From the street style-ready boots to the must-see Star Wars braids, here’s the highlights from the truly speculator show…
It probably comes as no surprise that the show was inspired by it’s venue, but traditional Japanese costume wasn’t the intention of the thematic trip. “Tokyo is a place that has been and is so constantly inspiring to me,” says Raf Simons. “Particularly in terms of the liberty people take for themselves in how they dress, there is nowhere else like it; the freedom of styles, the new architecture of clothing that you can see forming in the street as well as in city’s fashion design history… It’s a place that is both extreme and exhilarating.”
Inspirations aside, let’s talk about the high-neck sequin jumpers layered over flared off-the-shoulder dresses… We’ll be stealing this genius styling idea from here on in.
The iconic Lady Dior bag became part of Simons’ subverted East meets West vibe. Blown up to giant proportions or made tiny and more decorative with thick straps, this classic takes on a whole new meaning for Pre-Fall. And then of course there were the next-level boots.
