Herworld (Singapore) - - FASHION -

The new cre­ative di­rec­tor:

Maria Grazia Chi­uri is the 71-year-old French fash­ion house’s rst fe­male cre­ative di­rec­tor. She honed her ac­ces­sories skills at Fendi for 10 years be­fore spend­ing 17 at Valentino (eight as co-cre­ative di­rec­tor).

Her vi­sion:

Youth cul­ture (the for­mula for me­dia buzz and re­tail suc­cess now) + pretty with an edge.

The hot items:

“Don’t mess with me” avi­a­tors (edgy); Dior­branded knuck­le­dusters (edgy), leather chok­ers (ditto) and kit­ten-heeled sling­backs (pretty un­ex­pected); golf-meets-fenc­ing vi­sors (sporty meets pretty); “tarot-card” minaudieres with thick shoul­der straps (pretty + util­i­tar­ian); Katharine Ham­nett-in­spired slo­gan tees paired with princess-like tulle and em­bel­lished skirts; and ev­ery­one-can-wear fairy tale corset-like bustier dresses.
