Raf Simons further deepened on Mr. Dior's fascination with flowers by creating a magnificent collection that not only proved his capabilities but also gave us more insight on the direction he's leading the Parisian brand to.

The runway had real trees and bushes - a real garden was created from scratch, actually. And in it, the models, like flowers, blossomed. Simons, by literally interpreting the fashion season he was designing for, created a spectacle where spring gave its place to summer in the form of elaborate and exquisite clothes.

Van Gogh has also created tens of paintings with flowers being their primary theme. His use of bright colours and his vivid technique were the main factors I chose one of his works to combine with a look from the aforesaid collection.
