Dior Couture Just Brought Back This Major Jewellery Trend — and We Couldn't Be Happier
Maybe I've been watching too much Downton Abbey, but I've been thinking about breaking out my long necklaces from years past. I'm loving the throw-on-and-go appeal of layering them over embellished dresses to strike a flashy mismatch. Apparently, I'm not the only one: Dior just unveiled its Spring '16 Haute Couture collection in Paris, and the runway was peppered with models wearing wrapped chains — not only around their necks, but also their ankles, drawing plenty of attention to bow-adorned, pointed-toe shoes.
Since this collection marks the first since Raf Simons's departure, we're also paying careful attention to the clothes. While we spotted many sheer designs, like dainty lace slips and sheaths that promise the staying power of the naked dress, Dior's signature structured silhouettes were as prominent as ever: crisply tailored suits and jackets and off-the-shoulder gowns with strong, asymmetrical necklines, all of which came beaded or finished with girlie ruffles.
Read on to see all the looks comprising the fresh offering, and zoom in on all the details that make Dior so special — like those fabulous gold necklaces! — then check out the gorgeous mirrored show space, built from scratch right outside the Musée Rodin in France.
