I literally shedded a tear when I heard last week that Belgian designer Raf Simons is leaving Dior and latest SS2016 show was his last. He is leaving because of personal reasons, which makes sense. Especially after watching the document Dior and I, about his first collection for Dior, you can tell how much stress he has and you just want to hug him and tell that everything is going to be fine.
Whoever is going to replace him, will step into some really big shoes. You can see Raf’s influence everywhere even he stayed for such a little time. I mean talking about the space trend, remember the Pre-Fall 2015 show in Japan?
Hopefully he will still keep showing his own brand. But for now, bisous Raf. You will be missed.
