Live events are finally back, and for the very first mega event of Paris Fashion week, Maria Grazia Chiuri served up a mod-pop event at Christian Dior. The leggy dresses, tiny tailored suits, and flashes of bra tops harkened back to the youth revolution of the 1960s, while also pointing forward to what she described as Dior Cruise 2022 collection. The current young fashion revival impulse can be summarised into this: “Something graphic and clean, minimal and positive. Because I believe that we must maintain a positive outlook for the future.”
CRUISE 2022 COLLECTION
Designed by Maria Grazia Chiuri, the Dior Cruise 2022 collection celebrates the eternal beauty of Greece. The silhouettes adopt a resolutely contemporary sportswear style, cuts are loose and supple, and motifs dare to mix and match boldly. A truly enchanting modern mythology combining past and present.
The flagship style of the fashion show, the D-Zenith is a hybrid creation offering sportswear accents with an elegant ankle boot silhouette. Crafted in white calfskin, its design features an integrated sock in technical knit inscribed with the ‘CHRISTIAN DIOR’ signature. Details like its laces, mesh and leather inserts and rubber sole enhance its sporty look.
Complete with a 8 cm (3″) gold-finish heel inspired by the sculptures of Constantin Brancusi, the boot lends a couture touch to any look.
An ode to tender emotions, this capsule features the exclusive Cupidon print – representing Eros, the Greek god of love. The irresistible motif appears on a selection of pieces in vibrant shades of white, red and black. An ode to the passion and precious emotions that have always informed the House’s creativity.
The Dior Book Tote is an original creation introduced by Maria Grazia Chiuri, Dior’s Creative Director, and has become a staple of the Dior aesthetic. Designed to hold all the daily essentials, it is fully embroidered with the latte multicolor Cupidon motif, resonating with the Greek inspiration of the collection through a romantic print. Adorned with the ‘CHRISTIAN DIOR’ signature on the front, the small tote exemplifies the House’s signature savoir-faire and may be carried by hand or worn over the shoulder.
