Dior Fall 2016 Couture

If it’s not Resort Collections during the summer it’s Haute Couture Collections (aka eye candy for fashion lovers). As there are only a few selected fashion houses that get to do Haute Couture, we’re always overly excited. Folks? Here’s Dior Fall 2016 Couture show!


Dior are one of the fashion houses that get to show haute couture. Haute Couture is the highest form of fashion as all pieces are handmade. To get to define your collection as Haute Couture you have to be accepted by french department la Chambre Syndicale de Haute Couture, and by that, meet a few demands of the Dior Fall 2016 Couturedepartment. Andyesterday, 4th of July, Dior presented their fall couture collection at their headquarters in Paris. Behind the creations are designer duo Lucie Meyer and Serge Ruffieux. Celine Dion, Marion Cotillard and Natalia Vodianova were some of the people attending.


Couture collections are normally done rather artsy and evening fancy, but Dior’s fall 2016 couture show was more minimalistic. The collection was entirely made in black and white, with some metallic details. The classic color combo was combined with skirts, dresses, t-shirts, tops and blazers. The pieces stretched from preppy and done, to boho and flowy. The focus of the collection was the silhouette, many going back to the classic waistline of the 1947 collection The New Look. Some drapings were also spotted which gave the looks a more sophisticated approach. And the makeup was a liner gone statement, see makeup artist Eny Whitehead’s photo above !

Overall Conclusion

A classic Dior couture collection with silhouettes being the core. Dior usually uses more colors, but the black & white theme worked as a coherent line through the collection, binding the looks together. The elegant touches of gold and silver were welcome as they added some life to the creationes. Noteable for the collection is that no heels were used, only sandals, a comfy and unexpected contrast to the luxurious pieces. Nevertheless a welcome statement! Overall we loved this collection, simple and well excecuted. Perhaps a bit dull for a couture show, but the gold and silver embellishment made some perfect fashion statements.

  1. Oohh- but those embellishments still look on point despite the lack of color! Wow, I am in LOVE with that eye makeup. It’s very, very Dior. I’ve been so busy that I haven’t had a chance to check out all the couture shows, but I think I’ll take a breather and browse through all the collections tonight! It’s a must.

    1. They really made the embellishments work with the B&W combo! And the Dior vibe is definitely visible, so good that they’re staying true to the core of the fashion house! Same here, am looking forward to Elie Saab and Giambattista Valli. Just so good! Xx


  2. Wow, I learned so much in this post! I’ve often wondered why a lot of the large fashion names and brands don’t participate in a Haute Couture fashion show. I had no idea what it was exactly and that it requires such rigorous requirements to be met! That said, it’s not surprise that Dior is always a part of the action and even though the color palette was understated, I feel that the details made up for that, making it more practical for the every day. Well, perhaps the everyday of the super wealth, haha! I mean, who can really afford a couture piece by Dior!? Thanks so much for sharing, I truly enjoyed this post!



    1. Right? There is so much more to Haute Couture collections than just regular RTW! Dior managed to keep the looks interesting with the details, as you said, and the lack of color is somewhat compromised for it! And yes, Haute Couture is crazy expensive, but nevertheless a lovely inspo source! Xx


  3. I didn’t know that the Couture collections had to be approved by a special committee–so interesting! I’m usually a color lover, but the black and white looks are sleek and sophisticated!

  4. Thank you for the explanation on haute couture, had no idea that it had to be approved and accepted first. Usually I am not a fan of haute couture collection because they are just OTT to me but this collection from Dior is surprisingly relatable.
