All aboard The Dior Express! The fash pack journeys to Oxfordshire for a fittingly British show
In the 18th century, the French fell under the spell of British fashion, and it seems Dior interim designers Lucie Meier and Serge Ruffieux have contracted a severe case of Anglomania themselves. Their third collection for the house since Raf Simon's departure was bold in its British references, from the ruffles and peplums of post-war high society wardrobes to the rustic tweeds, poplins, and jacquards of the hunt.
The regal confines of Bleinheim Palace in Oxfordshire - the site of Dior's very first show on UK soil in 1954 - set the scene. Guests - which included the likes of Alexa Chung, Emma Roberts, Elizabeth Olsen and Kiernan Shipka - were transported to the palace from London via the opulent Dior Express train.
Accessories reigned supreme, from the skinny scarves - also a fixture at Louis Vuitton's Cruise '17 show - dangling from necks and tied around wrists to the gold-soled boots models trod the quintessentially British printed carpet in. See all the show highlights in the gallery above.
