Dior shocks at Le Palais Bulles

This resort season, we've seen some of the biggest names in fashion pair up with some of the biggest in architecture; Chanel chose Seoul's Dongdaemun Design Plaza for its cruise show last week, while Louis Vuitton took over the Bob Hope Estate in Palm Springs. The House of Dior was no exception; the iconic Palais Bulles (or bubble palace) housed its cruise show. Le Palais Bulles, a palace of terra-cotta bubbles built into a cliffside in the French Riviera, is by no means a traditional location for such a highbrow event, but creative director Raf Simons fell in love with the building years ago, calling it, "playful, sweet...childish, almost."

However, Simons' resort line was anything but childish. Simons revisited the iconic Dior Bar silhouette, which has been missin from recent seasons, but made the classic look his own by pair sophisticated Bar jackets with taffeta shorts and flip-flops. He chose patterns uncommon in resort wear, like plaid, and stuck to an earthy color palette to match the landscape of Southern France. Even his accessories set out to shock; he paired summer-y dresses with edgy, pointed-toe boots and shorts with fur stoles.

Overall, the venue itself seemed to be the star of Dior Cruise 2015, but I love the unusual colors and patterns paired with Dior's essential silhouettes. What resort look was your favorite?
