Dior Resort '14 Invites Us To Vacation Like A Modern-Day Princess

With a collection splashed with primary shades of blue, red, and yellow, Dior resort '14 made its debut just this past weekend. And taking place in one of our fantasy getaway locales, Monaco, the new designs delivered vacation-ready with a streamlined twist.
There were tailored, monochrome suits and colorblocked ladylike dresses that were perhaps proper but certainly not too prim. And, incorporating prints, Raf Simons swiped large, abstract graphics over sheer dresses, as well as smaller, colorful patterns that were seen in crop tops and pant embellishments. Other resort elements included silky briefs paired with flowing overcoats and bright evening dresses with skirts that danced like they were catching the breeze off the sea.
Of course, it's really no coincidence that Dior chose to present its resort '14 collection in Monaco, where one of the world's most recognized royals once resided. Deep cutouts and crop tops may have been a bit risqué for Princess Grace, but this was certainly a collection that embodies all the elegance of the late, great style icon. Ahead, view all the looks that have us fantasizing about distance shores and a closet fit for royalty.
