CHRIS­TIAN DIOR

Malaysia Tatler - - PARIS -

Cre­ative direc­tor Maria Grazia Chi­uri’s “We Should All Be Fem­i­nists” slo­gan T-shirt in her de­but readyto-wear col­lec­tion for Chris­tian Dior last Oc­to­ber was a defin­ing fash­ion mo­ment for the house. Post-us pres­i­den­tial elec­tion, her fol­low-up col­lec­tion fol­lowed through on the theme of woman power. Blue— in­spired by a navy belted skirt suit circa 1951—ref­er­enced the colour of World War II women’s and fac­tory worker uni­forms, and ap­peared in roomy denim trouser suits, glit­tery maxi dresses, and em­bel­lished tulle skirts. Then there was a ruf­fled baby­blue gown worn un­der a back­wards jacket that was a throwback to Ce­line Dion’s trouser suit at the 1999 Os­cars. All were capped with black leather berets by milliner Stephen Jones.
