Dior Cruise 2014

Raf Simons debuted his Dior 2014 cruise collection in the perfect setting last week: amidst the ever-glamorous Cannes Film Festival. He sent models down a Monte Carlo runway in looks that would have been been well received on red carpets--and a few bloomer-bearing ensembles that might make sense on the bow of a yacht alone.

Since Simons took the reigns of the storied house last year, I've been surprised by his inventiveness and nonchalant risk-tasking. (This season, it looked as though a few ladies hastened to pull their zippers after fleeing some midnight swim by moonlight.) I like to think his deviations from the spectacularly modern and pulled-together prove that we (our perspectives, tastes & experiences) are ever-evolving.
