Raf speaks! In his first post-appointment interview with Women’s Wear Daily, Raf Simons spoke about his much-anticipated appointment as creative director at Christian Dior! In response to claims that he will likely bring his largely minimalist in his design aesthetic to Dior, he told WWD:
I don’t think it’s wrong to call me a minimalist. It’s wrong to call me a minimalist only. I am also a romantic person. I wouldn’t go to that place if I only had minimalism in mind. I’m very aware of what the environment is about. I’m interested in creativity, the evolution of creativity and the relationship between creativity and the times we live in ... When I’m married to a house, I will fully embrace its original intention, its original heritage and meaning.
