EXCLUSIVE: Models Talk Dior’s First Collection Post-Raf Simons
Watch Kendall Jenner, Binx Walton, Sora Choi and more sound off on the Fall/Winter 2016 collection.| June 20, 2016
If you think about, the people who really, really get first dibs on a collection are the models. Temporary dibs, but still first. It’s a rather interesting position to be in, particularly when the collection is the first following the exit of a creative director. As the rest of the industry wonders how the brand would appear under new command, the models be like, “Gurl, we saw it first. We wore it first. Y’all can wait.” Well, at least, that’s what we imagine.
To go with the reveal of Dior’s Fall/Winter 2016 collection earlier in March, the first main one after Raf Simons, the house’s film crew opted to get soundbites from the models, a demographic whose opinions are often overlooked in favour of editors and celebrities. And yay for us because we managed to get a slice of all that backstage action, just for you. Watch It models Kendall Jenner, Alice Metza, Binx Walton and more talk about their show looks in the exclusive video above. (Will someone get us the name of that dark, glossy burgundy-blue lip colour, please? It’s gorgeous.)
