"Bracket this show with the men’s collection he presented under his own name last Wednesday, and it becomes clear that Simons contains worlds. He describes his own as “dark and conceptual.” The world he is creating for Dior is the opposite: serene, full of color and light. What connects the two is his purity of vision, and the endearing innocence with which it goes hand in hand. But when Simons took Haute Couture back to the garden this season, he opened up another world, and this one’s our favorite. It’s that world of infinite possibilities."
