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.
