Tokyo's Sumo Stadium was the place to show the new collection Dior Pre Fall 2015. And it is not because it has a Japanese influence, no, but because Raf Simons wanted something big, something futuristic and because the Japanese market is very open to it. Apart from what we were used to see at Dior, this collection is different in a way that is more daywear but keeping the Dior chic.

"I was very interested to do something which relates very much to the idea of outdoor, which is the opposite of cocktail or red carpet or whatever," said Simons cited by WWD.

In a futuristic and fantasy-like ambiance with foam snowflakes falling on the catwalk, the Dior magic installed. The designer came with a more day to day wear focusing very much on coats and dress-coats. To give a futuristic edge but in a feminine way, the designer chose sequins that were top layered by dresses or coats. This is the Esprit Dior collection that came to live on a Tokyo stadium: fresh energy with a futuristic vision, straight lines and sparkling sequins reminding us though we are a mix of people and styles but never losing the emotion. On an urban landscape, the Dior spirit could be felt and the touch of feminity never lost its force even with the different daywear outfits.

Raf Simons drew all his inspiration from various elements like the Blade Runner movie, the paillette underwear of Jane Birkin, Serge Gainsbourg, Pace Robbane experimentalism era or the Tokyo fashion streets. It is a mix that put together the entire collection. 

"This kind of outdoor aspect became a very important thing, so what I wanted to do is fuse something very typical, historical Dior in the shape [and] language with something which is very urban and outdoor in the actual materialization and construction," Raf Simons said.
