Raf Simons as artistic director!

As you have surely heard by now Raf Simons has landed the big gig with house of Dior! Christian Dior announced that Raf Simons would take over as artistic director of the house, succeeding John Galliano. The news comes only one month after former Dior Homme designer Hedi Slimane was named creative director at Yves Saint Laurent. But what are we expecting from Raf Simons?  “My aim is a very modern Dior, but at the end of the day, I also look back […] I find that period between 1947 and 1957 extremely attractive, and there was a lot of modernity. There was the romantic appeal looking back to his mother and the belle epoque, but there was also a constant evolution in shape, changing proportions and the ideas connected to the World War were revolutionary.”- Raf Simons
