DIOR HAUTE COUTURE
For Maria Grazia Chiuri debut at the helm of Dior, she chose what she is passionate about, amongst them fairytales but gorgeous gardens.
She created an extravagant visual tale, one that drew on the love of gardens; chiuri had one installed on the grounds of the Musée Rodin. It was a fairy-tale place, magical, sinister and overgrown with foliage. Centering the garden was a peculiar looking enticing tree, its branches strung with beads, ribbons and tarot regalia.
Within this setting, Chiuri imagined a masked ball, inspired by the grand, formal-dress extravaganzas; her mood board featured numerous photos of bohemian revelers, and one of Dior himself in dramatic, masked incognito. The strongest and most consistent part of the entire collection is easily described as black tailoring and beautiful ball-gowns: Garden Party at its best!
The dresses, meanwhile, included moody, broody, heroine-lost-in-the-woods gowns and a lovely white priestly style cloak. Mostly, there were exquisite variations on delicate otherworldliness, whimsical laces and tulles gloriously embellished, some worn with fanciful Stephen Jones headwear.
For her debut at the house of Dior, Chiuri has showed strong creativity, with a flavour for dark and dubious style.
