Paris Fashion Week AW14: Why We Loved The Dior Disco

Here's how today's exuberant, disco-lighted Dior show has given us fashion food for thought:

Green
There have been motions on green throughout the show season, but we can think of no stronger argument than this get-me-to-the-boardroom-for-a-big-takeover-now, deep vert bar jacket and trouser suit, casually accessorised with a bright blue coat held nonchalantly over the arm. Raf, we’re into it.

A primary bright coat on black
This has severe overtures of ‘can we wear this right now please?’ We LOVE a head-to-toe colour look, but in practical life, we’re feeling this a lot more. Supreme colour clash at its most striking.

The babydoll in extremis
Quilted thick fabric, a curved arm, asymmetric hem and lush orangey-scarlet hue: this dress manages to combine a lot of elements and make it look OTT fabulous. We love the outre play on volume. It’s so maxi-maximalist.

The shoe
Elegant with a whiff of le sportif and splash of colour, this trainer-court-stiletto hybrid is the most modern of stilts. It is the Ferrari of heels. Blown over.

The green and fuschia cocktail dress of dreams
The clever tulip shaped overlap, the spicy sexy green underneath, the gentle touch of embellishment flatteringly laid over the hip. If we were up for an Oscar on Sunday we’d be moving mountains to wear this dress to pick it up in.
