Ever rebellious – Raf Simons waged a full-fledged war against the current cloud of street-wear styles hovering over the fashion world.

Le Palais Bulles: A utopian project that encompasses earth, sky and sea, where the future is built organically from the forms and architecture of the past. In this Collection Croisiére, Raf Simons, Artistic Director of Christian Dior, looks to the landscape and memory of the South of France.

The Haute Couture Spring-Summer 2013 collection of Christian Dior was presented during the Paris Fashion Week yesterday.
