Edgy, whimsical, and totally swoon-worthy. These are just some of the words that come to mind when we take a look at the beautiful garments created by Maria Grazai Chiuri’s for Dior’s SS17 Haute Couture Show last night in Paris. Believe it or not, for a label founded in the 1940’s and so infused with femininity, it has taken Dior nearly 70 full years to appointing a woman as its Creative Director.
Although the show began in a contemporary manner with bar jackets and symmetrical cuts, what followed adopted a more wistful tone, with sheer, cinched and ruched dresses all fit for a Midsummer Night’s Dream.
With a mere two months to put together her collection, she wowed audiences, captivating their hearts and souls with a mix between sleek chic, and femme de fleur. The collection was debuted on the gardens of Musee Rodin, creating a dreamy and almost romantic atmosphere. The venue was decked in hundreds of sparkling fairy lights with ceilings of hanging leaves and crystals. The ‘enchanted’ theme continued inside the show, with models adorning flower crowns along with headpieces and masks in the shape of natural emblems.
Chiuri’s beautiful pieces for Dior certainly impressed audiences, and we definitely hope to see more from her in the near future!
