Crispy leaves crunching under our Jimmy Choo stilettos and guilty mouthfuls of mince pie, the winter season is upon us. Cold temperatures perhaps… but miserable we are not! Even if our favourite fashion designers have to force it upon us, tis the season to be jolly and this is exactly what is all over the AW14/15 runways.
Dior’s creative director, Raf Simons, has us head over heels for rainbow brights! With a strong focus on evening wear, Simons has made these garments fall effortlessly from the female frame. Silk and duchess satin, waterfall cuts and draping; floated down the runway. Comfortable, flattering and anything but tailored around the waist (fitting perfectly with our mince pie ideology of winter) is what his vision portrayed. There are colours to suit any complexion this season and here at Joel and Son we have an extensive selection of satins for you to recreate these easy to wear dresses.

Moving onto the more weather conscious looks of the collection, Simons has a strong perception of tailoring and this is displayed in full force. Pretty dresses layered under sharply tailored blazers is a recurring trend this winter. The greatest part of wearing a blazer is that this garment is so versatile, team with some jeans and boots to keep the chill away or with a shift dress at night.
This ‘Dior’ woman who as well as having an affinity for a party and its associated sophistication, also inhabits the everyday world like the rest of us. Create your very own Dior inspired blazer here at Joel and Son with our suiting fabrics and rest assured this piece will always be a style staple.
