The Dior Cruise 2015 presentation was held in Brooklyn. Guests included Rihanna, Marion Cotillard, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Leelee Sobieski, Allison Williams, and Margot Robbie. Designers Christian Louboutin and Proenza Schouler’s Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough were also in attendance. The motif of Raf Simons’ latest collection is the silk scarf - making pieces more fluid rather than the sculpted collections of previous seasons.
Here are five of our favorite picks when it comes to celebrating the new season with Dior. We can’t get over the Velour Pointed Pumps for fall and make a statement with Geranium. The Lady Dior Black and White Crocodile bag is a classic your collection can’t live without. Andy Warhol‘s early drawings were used for inspiration behind the fall 2013 collection. With very graphic standout shapes and cuts and distinctive silhouettes, the pieces are each works of art in their own right. Finish off your look with the Mise en Dior necklace featured above for the ultimate touch of ladylike elegance.
Dior requests the pleasure of your company to preview the Winter 2013 Pret-a-Porter Collection from Tuesday, August 6-Wednesday, August 7 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at our Highland Park Village boutique. Please RSVP to 214.520.6494 or email email@example.com.

Fashion designer Jil Sander told The New York Times she prefers the word purity to minimalism when describing the consumer trend of moving away from often over-the-top garment details in fashion. “Consumers are getting sophisticated enough to understand pure design,” fashion trend forecaster Sharon Graubard told the Times, “They don’t need junk on their clothes to feel like they’re getting bang for their buck.”
So, say goodbye to ruffles, fringe, gems, and gold? Is polished the new glam? After seasons of lavish embellishments, it seems consumers will lean towards more tailored, well-cut, and streamlined looks in the coming seasons.
To jump on board, checkout spring 2013 looks from Akris, Stella McCartney, and Rag & Bone at Highland Park Village. All of these pieces focus on beautiful cuts and tailoring and are still quite striking.
