Moving to Dubai isn’t that bad. I only had to wait for 2 weeks to get the first-hand experience to Raf Simons’ exclusive Cruise 2016 Collection that took place last Monday. It follows the cruise theme this year, beautifully located at One & Only The Palm – a superb, chic outdoor venue within the resort’s private marina.
Instead of a proper runway like in Paris, the collection was presented in form of a trunk-show. As expected, the collection reflects its haute couture geometric avant-garde design. Oh and did I mention that both the Diorama and Lady Dior are launching the new bags in silver. They are extremely mesmerising. Should I…?
Highlights of the season? Hmm, the mesh mini-skirt, low pointed signature heels and the improvement or modification of the Diorama. (I should have waited!) Oh and credits must be given to the venue itself for offering a relaxed social night with cocktails after a long day of work.
The Trunk-show & the goodies
My look at the show, wearing my “old-fashioned” Diorama, Keepsake The Label botanic dress and Steve Madden heels (newest line). On a side note, Steve Madden may create the most beautiful shoes, but when it comes to comfort, I must give it a score below 5 (scale out of 10)
Much love from Dubai,
