THE FREEDOM OF THE DIOR WOMAN
By Crash redaction
«A complete collection should address all types of women in all countries.» writes the Christian Dior in his autobiography Dior by Dior.
For the seventy years of the Dior house, Maria Grazia Chiuri chose for this collection to tap into the archives of the house.
For this, she was inspired by the travels of the couturier as well as his presence in the different countries of the world.
But above all, the Italian artistic director pays tribute to those who, over the past decades, traveled the world and crossed frontiers.
The women explorers become the heroines of this collection, where the forms and fabrics, inspired by men’s clothes, honor the courage and bravery of these women.
We found the aviator jackets to the pleated culotte skirts that used these women for comfort.
Maria Grazia Chiuri has sublimated these women who, through the creation of this collection, have left an indelible trace of their freedom.
