The art of life
Maria Grazia Chiuri, artistic director of the Dior women’s collections, was inspired by themes of “freedom” when designing for Pre-Fall. The pieces thus make up a wardrobe that encouraged individuality.
She turned the iconic houndstooth into an unlined jacket and swingy knit skirt, for instance. She also revived the black tassels used in a 1947 collection to punctuate the overleaf of a black dress.
As the fashion house so aptly describes in the press release: “Place art at the centre of one’s life. Express who one is through a series of memorable gestures. Be unforgettable.”
