On the heels of last year's successful debut, Christian Dior's creative director Raf Simons returns for another collection with Danish textile manufacturer Kvadrat. The 2015 collection features new textiles and colours in a range which places its focus on “Twill,” a weave traditionally used for hardy cloths such as tweed or denim. Twill is distinguished by a strong diagonal pattern in the weave, which has been emphasised across the three new designs “Noise”, “Masai” and "Sirocco" - through the use of different coloured yarns. "The combinations of diverse yarn qualities and multiple twisted yarns create depth and the colour results are surprising and striking.” explains Simons.

The collection is completed with thirteen new cushion designs upholstered in "Noise", "Masai" and "Sirocco", accompanied by matching throws in cashmere, baby alpaca and wool. For the launch of the new collection, Kvadrat and Raf Simons collaborated with iconic furniture brands Cassina and Fritz Hansen. Cassina’s Lady Chair by Marco Zanuso is presented in Noise 562 and Fritz Hansen's PK80 by Poul Kjærhol is presented in Masai 122, both pieces are featured throughout the new advertising campaign.
