Dior Dreams r
Maria Grazia Chiuri’s collection has gone viral. Thankfully, the high street is here to satisfy our designer cravings
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
