Dior SS14

Techno floral prints and silver embellished jacquard under a surreal tropical canopy

Initial reaction:

Floral fantasia garden party rave.


The venue dripped with surreal tropical forest fauna; colourful flocked tree branches, wisteria, and birds of paradise flowers.

Stand out looks:

Stripes of block text on dresses mixed with techno floral prints, ballooned and pleated organza skirts reminiscent of an upside down flower.

Viral moment:

Two shows in one. The finale was comprised of completely different looks to what was in the show: black tailoring mixed with silver embellished jacquard dress, gowns and draped tops. All looks were finished with a houndstooth school badge on the chest.

How they wore it:

Adorned with dripping beaded necklaces reminiscent of the wisteria strewn set.


Developments on last season’s beautiful knit wear; semi transparent pastel coloured techno versions of cable knit jumpers.

Unexpected details: 

Deconstructed men’s shirting dresses with crystal racer back details.


Began with dreamy classical music and progressed into techno: Antonín Dvořák’s Symphony no. 9. Scherzo (Molto Vivace) and a remix of Kylie Minogue’s Slow.


Slicked back diagonally parted hair, tied into a chignon, and painterly gold glitter and gold metallic eyes.

For the kids:

Other worldly fairy princess dresses entirely embellished in crystals.
