Le Palais bulles is exactly that – a Palace of the Terra-cotta bubbles set in a cliffside halfway between Cannes and Monaco. It is one of the goofiest buildings, you ever have seen eyeballs like a condo from Flintstones or a bunch of Murakami. Now the property of the legendary Pierre Cardin, it was the location for Dior’s cruise presentation tonight with Cardin, 92 years old, in the first series. And completely adequate for the atmosphere that the House had been loaned to the evening. “Almost playful, sweet… childish,” RAF Simons, said, as he on a place he mused me in love five years ago, first was brought here when he. “The House is large, but intimate and it not behave like an authority,” he continued. “And Dior can cause sometimes, especially when you look at it from architectural point of view.”
Check box Simons trajectory on the House, and you think that he subtly been undermined Dior authority turned him for his own purposes, imposing his own personality. The iconic bar jacket, was for example Backseated. This made something amazing tonight show. The silhouette of the bar was again full-sleeved, NIP-waisted. “I always will go back,” said Simons. “I don’t think that through a return I make it less mine.” And Yes, he did it his way, pairing this characteristic shape with taffeta of shorts or defusing the formality of the black bar Pant suit with a few flip flops. The heritage of Dior was quoted caused shoes low heels that lace through the show – Roger Viviers shoes, but as Simons said, they were so much Siouxsie & the Banshees as Marie Antoinette. Dior classic femme Fleur was abstracted in florals shimmering, Crystal sprinkled or very spectacular in the net overdresses this restrained pleated underskirt. That was to be Simon’s artistic way, what he looked like physically uncomfortable restriction of Dior original dresses. Here was the form, but it was also ease.
Antti Lovag, who designed the Palais bulles, considered himself an anti-architect. “The straight line is an aggression against the nature” he once wrote, a feeling that influenced him on a collision course with modern architecture, Corbusier to orthodoxy. He intended his work for “Joueurs et Aventuriers,” players and adventurers. Without a metaphor to make a meal, Lovags Palais bulles spoke volumes about where Simons Dior now sits. The playfulness of the collection with abbreviated proportions and knit onesies broadcast his confidence. The Patch-working and crochet and a thoroughly winning bio added to mineral-like layers of Lurex edge.
The big, brutal coast removed such a switching voltage of Picasso and Matisse, as far from the precision sobriety of his hometown, Antwerp spoke about the presence of nature in the South of France, the big sky, Simons. “Here, you see the world differently,” he said. “You see up in the sky.” And like he said and had to justify everything, punctuated Dior postshow drinks with Fireworks as a cloud bustingly, sky rattingly grand, like everything that you’ve ever seen. From the terrace of the Palais bulles, the magic could you, which looked like the expect at least from this place and this time.
