What’s old is new again. That was certainly the case with Dior’s fall 2013 collection, with the brand providing a modern twist to some of its classics from the 1940s. Ava Gardner-worthy gowns and Katharine Hepburn-esque pantsuits were paired with Andy Warhol printed accessories (and three dresses), including ‘Stamped Shoe with Butterflies 1961,’ High Heel,’ and ‘Shoe 1955.’ Raf Simons, who also paid tribute to the late Christian Dior’s admiration for artists Dali and Giacometti, teamed up with The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts to incorporate some of Warhol’s early drawings into the collection-those done before the artist became affiliated with Pop art. Simons explained, “For me, Warhol made so much sense. I was interested in the delicacy and sensitivity in the early work he did, I was drawn to that graphic style naturally in this collection. It was that notion of hand work and personal signature that fitted throughout.”
