Resort 2020 - Christian Dior
I just LOVE resort collections. The designers of the big houses really have a chance to express themselves and be overtly creative.
Maria Grazia Chiuri’s collection for Christian Dior is splendid and a true presentation of her care and thoughtfulness for design and product development. Every element matters, down to the final glass bead. The show was presented in Marrakech as a tribute to early collections by Yves Saint Laurent for the house during his reign in the 60’s. More so, the varied cultures and traditional, artisanal skills from the continent of Africa feature heavily in the collection. It’s all very deliberate, it all matters.
It was a collaborative effort of design ideas and craftsmanship perfectly curated into an interesting, fashionable, wearable collection.
“But fashion is changing and the where, the why, and the how of design has never mattered more. We all need to buy less and buy better, to invest in items made with care, respect, and love. We don’t need the digital imitations; we need the real deal. This is perhaps the finest realization thus far of Maria Grazia Chiuri’s insistent vision of a global feminism accessed through fashion. Christian Dior under her guidance doesn’t have to try to be cool, because it’s right and that’s chic.”
