Held in a makeshift space at the Jardin des Tuileries, the Fall/Winter 2020 collection of Maria Grazia Chiuri for Dior mapped out an atlas of emotions through the prism of the designer’ teenage diary.
Beyond this dive into her teenage, Maria Grazia Chiuri was also inspired from a plethora of sources: images of old couture clients, an upcoming exhibition of the Claire Fontaine collective at Rome’s National Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art, portraits of Carla Accardi, photos came from Germana Marucelli’s studio in Milan and a medley of other sources.
Translating all of these various inspirations, Grazia Chiuri delivered 84 looks for the Fall/Winter 2020 collection. Explorations of a vintage polka dot pattern, classic black and white looks, knitwear, and fringe all completed the melting-pot-like collection. Other consistent elements included lots of plaids and checked patterns, various suiting options, and Grazia Churi’s now well-known staple, a graphic tee that drives home the larger messaging surrounding the show.
