Watch Dior Cruise 12106 Collection In Cannes


Dior showcased its Cruise 2016 collection at Pierre Cardin’s famous Palais Bulles in Cannes.

Raf Simons drew inspiration for the utilitarian collection from the colours, textures, light and natural beauty of the Cote d’Azur.

“I wanted an idea of freedom, playfulness and individuality to come to the fore in this collection, especially in consideration of the Dior archive,” explains Raf Simons. “It is not a heavy concept; it is light and young and there is a literal lightening of this clothing to make it fresh. Much of the design architecture comes from Mr Dior’s manteaux, his coats. But the heavy fabric is stripped away, the scale is played with and elements of their style are ‘collaged’ into other forms and garments.”
