For her first Dior couture collection, Maria Grazia Chiuri found her inspiration in a mystical labyrinth, a place almost impossible to access.
With this collection, we rediscover the beauty of the Maison Christian Dior through the vision and the savoir-faire of Chiuri. Many details are a reference to the imagination of Mr Dior, from the flowers to all the little details that he considered delicate and essential to women. I personally love how Chiuri was able to perfectly merge together her love for superstition symbols and the elements of the eternal Dior garden.
I love the evening dresses that had changeant metallic colors, the use of tarot symbols, the embroidered stars on gold-colored tulle, the incredible work with pleats (particularly incredible!!). Her deconstruction of the Bar jacket is perfect, I loved how the show kicked off on a masculine note with a series of black and white looks, very ready-to-wear.
The masks and hats couldn’t go unseen, this take on the dark side completes the collection, giving it a mysterious side, something mystical at the same time. Last but not least, the accessories, all inspired by real-life floral elements are statement pieces that complemented the lightness of the powdery dresses.
