S/ - - THE LIST -

A Mid­sum­mer’s Night Dream meets Dan­ger­ous Li­aisons meets Lit­tle Red Rid­ing Hood—(the hood was black in this case)—would be a fit­ting de­scrip­tion for Maria Grazia Chi­uri’s haute cou­ture de­but for Dior. The Musée Rodin in Paris was trans­formed into a plush en­chanted gar­den as the back­drop for this ro­man­tic first out­ing. The col­lec­tion echoed the mag­i­cal at­mos­phere, com­plete with masks, dra­matic capes, and botan­i­cal em­bel­lish­ments. One could say this col­lec­tion was a counter-re­sponse to the slew of de­sign­ers who have started to cater to mil­len­nial fash­ion lovers. But there was no min­i­mal­ism on view here. Chi­uri wants us to get lost in the grandeur of haute cou­ture and to con­tinue to dream.
