Dior tapped photographer Patrick Demarchelier to shoot its new spring/summer 2016 ad campaign, which is fronted by budding models Sofia Mechetner, Roos Abels, Staz Lindes, Maartje Verhoef, Grace Hartzel and Binx Walton

The girls appear sporting Dior's SS16 designs, which were former creative director Raf Simons' last for the brand. 

The hair for Dior's news ad campaign was done by Duffy and low-key makeup was applied by Peter Philips, according to WWD.

Additionally, the French brand's Demarchelier-lensed ads are slated to debut in Harper's Bazaar in the U.S. on Jan. 19 and then in Korea for In Style, followed by Harper's Bazaar Japan, French Vogue and, finally, Elle China on the 20th. Shoppers in Hong Kong can also expect to see outdoor treatments of the images beginning on Jan. 23.

Simons announced his unexpected departure from the fashion house back in October. Rumors began this week that Alexander McQueen's creative director, Sarah Burton, is in talks with Dior to fill the open, coveted position. 

Last month, Dior also revealed that its existing in-house team will design the next two collections, which are the spring/summer 2016 couture collection — which will hit the runway in January — and the fall 2016 ready-to-wear range — which is set to be presented in March.

Quickly following Simon's exit from Dior, Alber Elbaz left Lanvin and Alexander Wang decided not to renew his Balenciaga contract.

Rumors also resurfaced recently that Hedi Slimane and Saint Laurent have not yet reached an agreement on the renewal of the designer's initial contract, and he is preparing to part ways with the brand.

Saint Laurent reportedly engaged in "extensive talks" with Anthony Vaccarello, creative director of Versus Versace, recently about taking the helm — but the label said that it "doesn't comment on rumors".
