Designer: Raf Simons for Christian Dior
What was it like: Floral waterfalls from last season were replaced with flower-like clusters of LED lights that shifted in color—until the start of the show when the space became engulfed in white light and models marched to the fast-paced pulsating beat of “Bug Noticed” by French Fries.
Why we love this collection: Sharp, tailored coats and pantsuits dominated the runway, but in rainbow-bright colors (think: fuchsia, canary yellow, Kelly green, and cerulean), occasionally accented with corset-like stitches, and paired with sculptural sporty heels. Meanwhile, dresses with bejeweled slits and quilted voluminous skirts added a flirty punch. And finally for evening, Simons approached it with a casual attitude, effortlessly layering sparkly sheer floor-grazing numbers over T-shirt dresses.
