In a true celebration of savoir-faire and creation in all its forms, Dior has unveiled its Spring/Summer 2021 ready-to-wear campaign with an ode to the painting styles from the Renaissance and Baroque periods.

Inspired by Caravaggio’s mastery of chiaroscuro, these photos highlight silhouettes with an almost sacred aura of mystery, like icons in a painting, punctuated with shimmering shades of blue, red and gold.
The campaign photos also take inspiration from Virginia Woolf’s feminist essays to the magnificant large-scale militant collages by Lucia Marcucci that graced the runways.
Captured by Bulgarian photographer Elina Kechicheva, models Maryel Uchida, Levi Achthoven, Sculy Mejia, Holly Fischer, and Judith Frament pose in romantic looks. Creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri’s designs include pleated skirts, sheer dresses, and woven separates. For set design, richly draped fabrics, as well as stylized fruits, stand out.
