The designs for this collection were inspired by the attire worn in 15-17th century Europe. Maria Grazia Chiuri brought those imagined periods to life through her fashion sense and creative eye, making them modern again without losing any of their timeless qualities
This year’s show seemed like no other as it featured an array of unique ensembles which caught our attention right away thanks largely due to them being impeccably tailored with rich textures such fabrics velvet mantillas etc. What really stood out though weren’t just these elaborate looks but also how effortlessly chic everyone looked while wearing them. Christian Dior
We were greeted by a model wearing nothing but a 21st century’s iconic led light futuristic garment as she walked onto the runway. When light fired up, we saw that this time period’s paintings of XV century on her walls and white parts covering what they wore in those days- it brought these characters much closer to us while also letting us reimagine them wearing Dior garments!
After seeing the CORSET trend presented at Milan Fashion week, Maria Grazia Chiuri didn’t fall from the idea of the corset to create her fencing armoire/corset that has been reinvented for Christian Dior lines. The design is adapted from the 1950s style, giving waistlines on coats and dresses exquisite details like sheer panels or lace-ups with buckles inspired by vintage belts.
I have to say that this is one of the most beautiful collections I’ve seen. The silhouettes are fine, and they’re also elegant at once – which makes them perfect for any occasion! One thing worth mentioning: all those embroideries on antique collars look extremely up-to-date as well; you can’t go wrong with something so exquisite if your goal was an edgy yet stylish outfit. I really like how these items were designed because not only do they match my personal taste (glamorous but still demure).
This collection is a great success with its subtle Italian touch, but I think we can all still find our beloved Christian Dior identity. The lines are there and so too his unmistakable grey color- it’s just that kind of wardrobe!
