Christian Dior Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2016

The Dish: Christian Dior Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2016 collection. The collection was designed by the post-Raf Simons design duo of Lucie Meir and Serge Ruffieux. After Simons abruptly quit the famed French fashion house last October, they were given the task of taking on the design duties. Meir and Ruffieux were no strangers to designing at Dior since, in fact, they were Simons' chief designers for the line.

It was just announced at the end of Paris Haute Couture fashion week that Valentino co-designer Maria Grazia Chiuri will now take the helm and be the official replacement for Raf Simons at the House of Dior, making her the first woman to do so in the 69-year history of the fashion label.

But before Chiuri presents her first collection (Spring 2017 RTW) in October, the design duo of Lucie Meir and Serge Ruffieux presented their final Haute Couture Collection for Dior.

Trends: The collection was based on the famed Dior Bar jacket and New Look silhouette of 1947, but updated. Feminine, loose silhouettes. Full skirts; below-the-knee hemlines; flat Roman sandals. Sequined embellishment; see-through; billowy sleeves.

Colors: Black and white. Creme.
