Raf Simons talks fashion in a digital age and Christian Dior's SS16 show
In the brief moments of calm that follows a fashion show, the artistic director of Christian Dior shares his thoughts about the spring/summer 2016 collection

Raf Simons is a designer that shuns photographs and the spotlight, preferring to let his work speak for itself. It is then, a rare occurrence that he breaks his silence to discuss his spring show for the House of Dior.

Describing his vision for SS16 as 'soft futurism', Simons muses on his interpretation of the Dior lady for the storied house, his approach to fashion in the increasingly fast-paced digital world we live in, and the inspiration behind the breathtaking show set.
