Raf Simons is So Good: Dior Cruise 2016

High above the Bay of Cannes sits the odd looking yet somehow appealing estate owned by Pierre Cardin.  The aptly named Le Palais Bulles, which translates to ‘The Bubble Palace’, was where Raf Simons chose to present his 2016 Cruise collection in a trio of shows yesterday.

Marion Cotillard, Dakota Fanning , Zoe Kravitz and Mr. Cardin himself sat front-row for the finale evening show.   “I find this architecture exceptional,” Simons said about the venue. “I find it very young, feminine and playful.”  This young and fresh aesthetic was evident in the 53 perfectly spectacular looks Simons sent down the runway.  I seriously want wear every look in this collection.  Every. Single. One. Gingham peplum tops paired with shorts and pointy toed boots whose dopeness should make them eligible for the Rad Ass Boot Hall of Fame.  Adorable mini dresses, this beaded shift, fabulous separates and the bags…oh my, the bags.  Check out the entire collection here.  Be prepared to fall in love.
