Paris Fashion Week is in full swing and Tuesday the Dior show took place.Although we loved the designs of Raf Simons for the fashion house, we are also really fond of what Maria Grazia Chiuri makes for Dior.And her designs for SS2018 put everything apart from disappointing.
The new Chiuri for Dior collection is clearly younger than what other designers have ever made for the fashion house.Slim, because the pieces are all in taste at millenials.From beautiful portable (that’s what we want) shoes, transparent fabrics, denim and friendships to miniature curtains: it’s all going to be sweet buns over the counter.
The show was opened bySasha Pivovarova.A special but well thought-out choice.In addition to model, she is also an artisan, thereby contributing to the idea behind the show.The theme for the collection and the presentation was female artists.They are, but why do they not get as much attention as male?Linda Nochlin wrote an essay in 1971 called ‘Why Have Been Been No Great Women Artists?’and that quote was on the striped t-shirt that Sasha wore at the opening of the show.
The collection and the decor of the show was inspired by the art of Niki de Saint Phalle.The artiest was once a muse of Dior designer Marc Bohan and now Chiuri referred to her with the show’s appearance, which consisted of a giant building filled with countless mirrors.Many of the designs that the catwalk went on had a blast to the Saint Phalle.
Dior’s Peter Philips created a beautiful makeup showing the models on the catwalk.With well-lit eyelashes, which caused a doll eyes effect, the models were a picture to see.
