At the heart of any cruise collection worth its frequent-flyer miles is travel — and especially to warmer climes. Raf Simons for his Dior collection trained his sights on the south of France in the otherworldly setting of Le Palais Bulles. Designed by architect Antti Lovag for owner Pierre Cardin, the Bubble Palace as it were provided a fitting backdrop for the decidedly playful cruise collection. On the day Lineisy (pictured), Yuan Bo ChaoGrace HartzelMarta Placzek, and Hedvig Palm featured on the runway.
