What a change we are getting through. From the flamboyance of Galliano to the spirit of Christian Dior splendidly interpreted by mister Simons. When I look at the images I feel the hand of Dior making subtle drawings on paper from the ideas he always preconised. French (parisian) chic, femininity, HAUTE COUTURE, made wearable for many women and fashion as I like it to be. Durable, beautiful now and in years from here. Understated luxury and not a nouveau riche show off.

Raf Simons is appointed as new head of design at the couture house Christian Dior.
I am very proud as being Belgian that John Galliano is being replaced by Simons. The contrary of flamboyance, back to the roots and the DNA of the house of Dior with the first Haute Couture show in July of this year.
Simons proved that he knows what he is doing. cfr. his work at Jill Sander. A man with his head on his shoulders.
I wish him all the luck in the world to have a successful career in this venerable house and I hope that Dior will becoming a chic brand as it was a long time ago.
