Dior Cruise 2016 collection spotlights bold prints and modern tailoring

On Monday, May 11, Dior presented its Cruise 2016 collection just outside of Cannes, at Pierre Cardin's Palais Bulles. Modern fabrics and an emphasis on plaids are among the defining characteristics of the new line.

After traveling to Brooklyn last year, the French fashion house invited the style world to Théoule-sur-Mer, just outside of Cannes, to unveil its Cruise 2016 collection. The latest designs from Dior creative director Raf Simons debuted in the atypical setting of Pierre Cardin's Palais Bulles, also known as the Bubble House, an enormous Mediterranean seaside villa known for its unique architecture.

Between the looks unveiled and the venue, against the backdrop of the Mediterranean Sea, the show gave the guests an impression of freshness and lightness.

The choice of location is significant, as the collection reflects the spirit of the French Riviera, namely in its colors and textures. Simons emphasized shimmer and contrasting textures, along with layering effects, while maintaining an overall tone of breeziness and modernity.

In terms of silhouettes, the collection was dominated by blouses, wide-legged pants, short skirts and a modern take on the iconic Dior Bar Suit. Very summery, the dresses have elements of 1960s style but remain contemporary.

Bold prints

Patterns, and especially plaids, were seen throughout the show, often with metallic effects. In terms of colors, black and white were fairly present, along with shades inspired by the landscapes of the Côte d'Azur -- namely blues, reds, pinks and browns.

Held two days before the opening of the Cannes Film Festival, the show was attended by several celebrities, including French actress and Dior spokesmodel Marion Cotillard, as well as Cressida Bonas, Zoë Kravitz, Dakota Fanning and, of course, Pierre Cardin.
