MY WEEK IN INSTAGRAM.

I love Instagram just as much as the next iPhone-toting, selfie-taking, fashion-freak and I’m constantly illustrating my life through random photos on my Instagram page. Here’s a showcase of my week in Instagram. Follow me on Instagram @_hannahstocking

COUTURE WEEK: CHRISTIAN DIOR SPRING 2013

When the house of Dior first announced its hiring of Raf Simons to take over, the fashion world held its breath. With Simons being known for his androgynous clean lines at Jil Sander, it was a wonder how he would fit into the Christian Dior mould… A few collections have now been showcased under Simons with unanimous applause from fashionistas the world over and, in my opinion, this collection for Spring couture 2013 really presents Simons in a Dior-shaped light. I had my own reservations in the beginning about Raf Simons for Dior, mainly because of what a big character John Galliano had been at the label and I just didn’t know whether Simons’ design aesthetic was strong enough to behold that of Galliano’s. I was wrong, so wrong. I am just IN LOVE with the cut of each and every single piece in this collection, especially the tulip shaped dresses and the asymmetrical lines throughout. The colour palette being set as muted, but not dreary, bold but not overpowing, the mix was just right. Elegance personified.
