Le Palis Bulles, a legendary feat of architecture set halfway between Cannes and Monaco was the setting for the Dior Resort 2016 collection and the location was the perfect setting to show off this collection..
Whimsical patterns and a palette of pinks and blues create an undeniably feminine aesthetic, as does the myriad of baby doll and flounced silhouettes. Dropped, below the knee lengths hint at the 1920’s but jersey materials keep it from venturing too far into uptight territory. For the lovers of traditional Dior style, the collection includes what can only be described as dresses on mass, with the inclusion of a baby doll sequinned sunset printed number standing out. Almost 80 percent of this collection is just dresses, which for some designers might have proven to be somewhat boring. Raf Simmons, however, plays so well with proportion and print that you forget about the lack of variety.
