During this splendid couture week, Dior Creative Director Maria Grazia…
This season, Chiuri wanted to reflect in the pieces Christian Dior himself while using her own style to reinvent once again the Bar Jackets and Ball Gowns. She found inspiration in Mr. Dior’s most-iconic pieces, featuring polka dots, sheer fabric, and astonishing surrealistic headpieces. When asked about Couture, she says DREAM. And this is the experience she gave us. Paris Couture Week definitely kicked off with an extremely powerful collection.
This collection might be the closest to the archives that Chiuri has ever made during her journey at Dior. Black and white constituted the main palette with some pop of color every now and then like red or geometrical patterns (the stripes took my breath away!).
There are certainly plenty of Grazia’s signature touches throughout the collection, like the caged diaphanous gowns, especially on the waist, with the embroidery and knife-pleated detailing. I loved her reintroduction of the total monochrome suit, reminding us that couture isn’t just about a gown.
For the show, incredible masks adorned the models’ faces, they added a lot of mystery and surrealism to the entire collection. Peter Phillips worked on a beautiful complexion, nude lips and a rather surprising eyeliner (that I absolutely want to try). Makeup on point, one of my favourites to date as well.
Maria Grazia you took our breath away, this time, in my humble opinion, more than ever.
