The Show Makeup

We examine the beauty look designed by Peter Philips, Creative and Image Director of Dior makeup, for the ready-to-wear spring-summer 2016 collection.

The Dior woman for spring is as delicate and fresh as the multitude of flowers that blossomed as the decor for the show. Echoing the outfits in the collection, eyes are soft, subtly shaded pink with a gentle cloud of shadow on the upper lid rising up to the eyebrow arch, and the brows are redrawn with blending pencil. The fresh and light complexion is unified using an evanescent foundation, and then cheekbones brightened with a pink-tinted blush. In this same spirit of beauty, lips are firstly moisturized with a nourishing pomade then lightly coated with a fresh and radiant pink to lend a natural glossiness. The nails are painted in pastel tones in harmony with the makeup. Hair is lightly pulled back into a low ponytail.

The Art of the Line

Pared down and subtly architectural, the looks designed by Raf Simons for the spring-summer 2016 ready-to-wear pay homage to the idea of the "line" that structured each of Monsieur Dior's collections.  

“To simplify and concentrate on a line that expressed an idea of femininity, fragility and sensitivity without sacrificing strength and impact"​ is how Raf Simons summed up his latest collection. Each look comprised the same base, composed of a lingerie-alluding white top and shorts. Worn with an abbreviated knit, a Bar jacket or a vaporous dress, it offered an infinity of variations. 

This leitmotiv running through the entire collection recalls the manner in which Christian Dior conceived his own creations: "The line... must present sufficient variety, but respect a general harmony and be careful to not contradict it," the couturier wrote in his autobiography. With names like En 8 and Corolle, A and H, Verticale and Oblique, the lines created each season by Monsieur Dior produced a striking effect through their architectural form, and their nominative determinism. Faithful to this legacy, Raf Simons' creations represent the quintessence of the woman of tomorrow.
