DIOR SS 22

Yay Paris Fashion week is back and today it was Dior’s fashion show which was fully inspired from the ’60s.

“During the pandemic crisis, we did a lot of film video. I think it’s not the same, I think it’s completely different because fashion is something that you do on a stage,” Maria Grazia Chiuri, womenswear designer for the LVMH-owned (LVMH.PA) label, said in an interview.

The designer drew on the house’s collections under the creative leadership of Marc Bohan, who was known for modernizing styles by loosening silhouettes in the 1960s and 1970s.

Chiuri swapped Dior’s signature, cinched Bar jackets for short, boxy cuts, rounding the shoulders and pairing them with mini skirts and bermuda shorts. She wove in technical fabrics like scuba material, which added a sporty flair to the lineup of colour-blocked looks matching tailored coats with dresses.

“I bring this reference in the silhouette, in the bold colour and also it’s very graphic,” said Chiuri.

“The essence of fashion is also a game, people use clothes to perform in, to describe themselves, to be fun,” said Chiuri.
