Christian Dior – Suggestions 2017/18
Maria Grazia and Women
Dior. On stage, Maria Grazia Chiuri with her first pret-à-porter Dior collection. An extraordinary event, since Maria Grazia is the first woman, and the second Italian after Gianfranco Ferrè, to become the Creative Director for this prestigious brand. Important aspects, since the competitive level is very high. The collection is in blue, a pacifying tone. Yet, this isn’t enough. Maria Grazia knows women well, and she knows what women like, so she tunes the collection in to a very trendy way of dressing, but never excessive: just right and chic. Denim is found in variations of indigo, different from the delicate ones and the more intense ones. Jeans are perfect and jackets call to mind the famous 1947 jacket, cinched at the waist. T-shirts are imitated, a symbol of success. New accessories become a must. Then there’s that brassiere with its logoed straps. How can you not want to have it? Creating desires is one of the most significant tasks of a fashion designer. Dedicated to the evolution of the Dior brand: an important exhibition at Les Arts Décoratifs, 107 rue de Rivoli, 75001 Paris, from July 5th to January 7th, 2018. An event not to be missed.
