af Si­mons left some pretty big shoes to fill when he re­signed from his post as Dior’s cre­ative di­rec­tor in late 2015. He left the fash­ion house in the hands of the de­sign team while the search con­tin­ued for a new helms­man. Or woman, as the case came to be. Last July, it was an­nounced that Maria Grazia Chi­uri would leave Valentino for the job, mak­ing her the first ever fe­male cre­ative di­rec­tor of Dior. And her first col­lec­tion for SS17 didn’t dis­ap­point.

From her overtly fem­i­nist mes­sage com­mu­ni­cated on slo­gan tees to the Calvin Kleinesque waist­bands stamped with Dior brand­ing, this is Chris­tian Dior for the In­sta gen­er­a­tion. If you’re des­per­ate to join the club, the high street al­ready has some ex­cel­lent ways for you to nail the look now. The Dior dream is closer than you think…

The Corset ef­fect We’re not ad­vo­cat­ing the re­turn of the dreaded corset, but Zara’s top gives the il­lu­sion of wear­ing one (ie the lace-up de­tail). Plus, it’s a dead ringer for OP’S Dior. Top, £19.99, Zara

£42, The Denim DRESS Bella Ha­did’s midi is all we can think about. While we’re yet to find a bustier denim frock with glit­ter straps on the high street, Miss S’s ver­sion will help you chan­nel Bella’s vibes. Dress, Miss Sel­fridge

The Slo­gan Tee Dior’s ‘We Should All Be Fem­i­nists’ T-shirt was worn proudly by Natalie Port­man when she joined women on the world­wide march against Trump. T-shirt, £10, Etsy

The Tulle Skirt J-law stole our hearts when she teamed a ce­les­tial blue tulle skirt with a match­ing jumper. Fol­low her lead and pair M&S’S of­fer­ing with a tucked-in knit. Skirt, £35, Marks & Spencer
