Raf Simons throws a heart to the crowd at the finale of Dior Spring/Summer 2016.

As much as we hate to send you into the weekend with a heavy heart, we are forced to report Raf Simons’ departure from Dior. After three and a half years at the helm of the brand, the visionary designer has announced his plans to leave for personal reasons. Not only has he shaped Dior into one of the most forward-thinking names in fashion, but he’s also been adept at melding fashion’s artistic side with that of smart business.

The most heartbreaking aspect of this news is that Simons’ last-ever collection was his amazing presentation for Spring/Summer 2016, which took place against a mind-blowing mountain strewn with 400,000 delphinium flowers. Although we were not prepared to consider this show as his swan song at the time, the beauty and depth of his vision will remain with us for eternity.
