The Dior pre-fall 2015 show was held in Tokyo's Kokugikan,s arena, one of the outstanding sumo wrestling place in the country. Raf Simons is deeply connected to the Japan. His menswear line very first customers were Japanese. "It's a sublime city to be in, from fashion point of view, they take so much liberty to express themselves" - Raf said.
House of Dior has extensive history with Japan. Christian Dior recalled his childhood obsession with Japanese screens in his autobiography, he designed looks for Kyoto's famous Tatsumura workshop, Tokyo department store Daimaru was selling his haute couture.
The show was not about Japanese, it was expanding of Dior's vocabulary. Raf said: "I tried to imagine a woman who was very much into the language of Dior, but she also has her garden, and she has her boyfriend with a motorcycle in the city, or she's with her kids by the sea, or out of her dogs".
The dominant details were: sequin turtleneck layered under the most looks, waxed-cotton coats, knit vest, wide-legged trousers, mid-calf shift dresses, short plaid dresses with flat boots, Fair Isle sweater and sweaterdressees in amazing paillettes, fistful of rings, sunglasses and main - Princess Leia braids.
All the details with the fake snow and more than 1400 audience made the pre-fall collection really impressive for each fashionista.
