The details to take away from Christian Dior’s exquisite SS16 show are neatly summed up in this top photo.
*precision tailoring and structure act as a counterbalance to feminine scallops, sheer fabrics and knife pleats. Love the look of a long jacket with just a peek of a scallop edge peaking out underneath. So perfect.
*an ankle wrap, patent leather, exagerrated buckle pump, high or low heeled, anchored each look and added a dose of edginess to the fragility of chiffon and cotton organdy.
*structured, classic bags had a fresh energy with bold metallics, and shiny crocodile…especially in vibrant colors.
*an elongated, slim neck was the focal point, either smoothly wrapped with a flat scarf and layered with a choker, or simply tied with pale ribbon accented with a large semi-precious single stone.
