Street Style: Miami
Meet Anna-Sophia van Zweden, an Art and Music Festival Director based in Dallas. We spotted her strolling Art Basel Miami and asked her who her favorite designers were. Currently, Raf Simons and Christian Dior are top of her list. 
We combed through eBay ourselves and searched out some Raf Simons and Christian Dior to affirm her thoughts. We concur. Good stuff.

Technicolor Kicks 
Nothing routinely makes me want to dress up like a boy more than Raf Simons’ menswear collections. Bold, bright, and never one to shy away from seemingly feminine trappings, Simons’ clothing and accessories exist somewhere in the unisex realm — think marketed to one and coveted by all.

Rihanna Goes Boy
By Jauretsi
Our writer Jenny Bahn recently mentioned The New Boy look for women. It seems Rihanna is on the same collective conscious when she retired her usual slinky dress for a  blue-and-grey-striped top and matching pants from Acne’s spring 2013 menswear collection for the Westfield Stratford City Christmas lights yesterday in London, England. She decided to top it off with a blue coat by Raf Simons, grey suede pumps, and red lipstick. Go girl.

Dior Wars
By Sade Lythcott
It’s official. The Dior lightsaber has officially been passed from John Galliano to Raf Simons. Nostalgic as some might be for the the frivolity and irreverence of Galliano, Dior couldn’t be in more deserving hands. Read this December’s Vogue article on Simons to get to know the designer and his aesthetic better. In the article, Raf expresses his great humility about such an important opportunity as the new creative director of Dior. In the article, he gives homage to his roots. “I am super proud of my parents—my mother was a cleaning lady, and my father was a night watchman in the army,” says Simons, “and now I stand in this world, and yeah, it’s a bourgeois environment, in a house that’s seen in France as the most important position in fashion, along with Chanel. But I don’t care about that. What I find amazing is that it’s a beautiful house where I can make clothes to make women happy. I was raised in a very happy nest by very happy people, and I like to think that those are enough ingredients to make me succeed at Dior.”
We wish Simons the best of luck. Check out Simons first collection for Dior here. Thoughts?
