In her new interpretation of the relationship between the clothing, the body and fashion, Maria Grazia Chiuri took us on a trip down memory lane to the 1950s and modernly explored the history of Dior and French style. Three extraordinary figures were in the spotlight: Catherine Dior, Édith Piaf, and Juliette Gréco.
Therefore, the creative director designed a wardrobe that embodies their independent spirit, their unique protagonist lifestyle, and their way of transforming feminine stereotypes through their post-war mindset. Rebellious with a flair of femininity that goes against the grain, the collection came as strong as it was fragile. Floral motifs chosen by Monsieur Dior were revisited in mottled fabric interwoven with a metallic thread – rendering it malleable and erasing its contours for an abstract effect. Delicately nuanced tartan fabric brought coats, jackets, and straight skirts to life, while poplin shimmered with metallic thread and embroidery added little bursts of light to the marvels.
Besides celebrating the kaleidoscopic image of a femininity outlined by powerful icons, the Dior woman’s wardrobe will beat with a primary color palette of ruby, emerald, topaz yellow and blue, and lively pave a path towards a future that can only be described as bright and promising.
