‘The collection moves from the self-contained, cultivated garden of the ‘femme fleur’ towards what could be seen as a new terrain, at once more naturalistic and alien,’ says Raf Simons, as he steers Dior towards a fresh and uncomplicated new space. Making innerwear the new outerwear, it was the artistic skillset and unparalleled technique that vied for attention. Transparent organdie dresses teamed with delicate cotton cami-knickers and starched chemises are elements that should make it to your summer dressing.

How to get the beauty look: 

1. Complexion: Use Diorskin Star fluid foundation, a few touches of Skinflash to highlight places that catch the light, and fix it for slight corrections. On the cheekbones, use Diorskin Nude n°001 Glowing Gardens Glowing Pink and a touch of Diorblush n°844 Glowing Gardens Floral Pink.
2. Eyes: Dab on 5 Couleurs n°451 from the Glowing Gardens palette, and Diorshow Colour and Contour n°757 Orchid. For the eyebrows, use the Sourcils Poudre n°453 Soft Brown eye brow pencil and tame your brows with Diorshow Brow Styler.
3. Lips: Hydrate your lips with Dior Addict Lip Glow N°001 Pommade, and layer it with the soft pink Dior Addict Lipstick n°266 Delight.
4. Nails: Try on nude shades in Dior Vernis n°491 Lilac, Dior Vernis n°302 Garden, Dior Vernis n°301 Bleuette and Dior Vernis n°650 Pivoine.
