    Incredible location plus lustworthy clothes? It can only be the Dior Cruise show. Here’s what you need to know about this year’s spectacular…

    Who? Raf Simons’ Dior Cruise collection pulled in the crowds again with a selection of well heeled women of fashion making their way to Cannes for the spectacular. Rubbing shoulders were Dakota Fanning, Zoe Kravitz, Cressida Bonas, Oscar-winner Marion Cotillard and supermodel Elena Perminova. Wonder what they all talked about.

    What? With a plethora of prints derived from the brand’s AW15 collection, the Cruise collection played to the strengths of its beautiful set with colours and textures inspired by the Cote d’Azur which served as a backdrop. The collection spanned from a mixture of plaids to light pleated skirts to light knit tweed dresses in earthy colours reminiscent of wavy desert rocks and seascapes. It was accessories aplenty with patterned bucket bags with heavy chains and shoes buttoned and pointed while models clung onto multi-coloured fur stoles which were then casually slung over a bare shoulder. Those in need of a tweed knitted bodysuit or just a general updating of their wardrobe ahead of an upcoming Riviera vacation should make their way over to a Dior boutique ASAP. In keeping with the summery feel, makeup was fresh with models sporting a healthy glow while hair was down and barely styled (read: fussed over for hours). 
    Where? While the collection was the main emphasis of the show, the location came a close second. Pierre Cardin’s iconic Palais Bulles (Bubble Palace – no, really) served as the perfect location for the show and a jealousy-inducing backdrop for those not in attendance.
