Taking inspiration from Elisabetta Orsini’s book, “Atelier: Places of Thought and Creation”, Maria Grazia Chiuri has, yet again, celebrated haute couture in the most majestic of ways.
Going back to basics and keeping it timeless and classic, each piece of the collection takes your breath away. The 50s are back and we are most excited about that.
Chiuri has made waves since she held the reigns of the mammoth fashion house. Her “We should all be feminists” T-shirts have become the iconic free expression of fashion. With her ready-to-wear spotted on almost every red carpet and social event, she gives us an immaculate collection. With a powdery palette of brick, pink, green and orange, the tea length dresses are diaphanous with a romantic flow. The sculptural form of a red silk dress sewn from a single piece of fabric opens the way to a series of majestic and intimate creations, both restrained and explosive: couture, in the process, becoming a psychological place of female resistance. Maria Grazia Chiuri returns to the fundamentals and designs suits in which the Bar jacket develops batwing sleeves.
Dior has always been known as a couture house first and Maria Grazia Chiuri has maintained that by raising the bar for this couture assemblage.
