The Dior is in the Details

What a beautiful show Raf Simons presented for Christian Dior!  I was just writing about the collaboration between artists and fashion designers and for the Autumn-Winter 2013 collection Raf Simons worked with the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Viusual Arts and was inspired by Christian Dior's own interest in art and in particular surrealism.  And the result left me feeling like a bonafide surrealist:  full of yearning, desire and dreams...

Magritte's clouds floated above and around the runway:

Rene Magritte.  The Large Family 1947

Objects of desire.  Andy Warhol's A la recherche du shoe perdu drawings and Raf Simons for Dior.

"See a shoe and pick it up, all day long you will have good luck"

Andy Warhol.  From the series A la recherche du shoe perdu.  1955

Wonderful and whimsical:

A rose:

Is a rose

Is a rose

Salvador Dali.  Meditative Rose.  1958

Of dreams and memories

"Memory Dresses"

The night before.  A key.  A bouquet of flowers.  False eyelashes...

Sweet dreams...
