Watch Raf Simons Say Words About His Couture Debut

While everybody else has been buzzing, the designer sat down for a Dior-filmed interview, remarking, “We all know and we all perceive Christian Dior in a very specific way … finding myself in the house now, I have to say that I discovered even much more things that I didn’t really see before, like specific codes that he uses, and specific gestures, and specific attitudes.” Of his haute couture show, he explains, “My desire is to have the history and the future together by making a more modern dress and a more, let’s say, historical dress, and kind of fusing them together,” adding, “I think it’s also an attitude gesture, what we did with some of the couture dresses. Like there were several that we cut off [in] a kind of top, minidress length, to be worn with the pants so that the whole attitude changes … and the girl can just move very easily, hands in the pockets, whatever. Same with the ones that were sliced open in the front, you know, and you take also a pant underneath. It doesn’t become this kind of ‘don’t touch it, only look at it’ situation.” So touch it and look at it, and dream of one day owning it. Sigh.
