‘’We are traversing a period of crisis that is radically transforming behaviors, habits and rituals’’, Maria Grazia Chiuri stated in the Dior’ show notes. ‘’Our spirits have changed, as have our bodily attitudes. The concept of fashion as we know it has been put into question’’.
In Dior’s cathedral (a tent set in the Jardin des Tuileries) where the atmospheric show space was created by Italian visual artist Lucia Marcucci, Chiuri populated the stage with Bohemian women who brought to mind the writers Virginia Woolf and Susan Sontag.

The runway was a lesson in elevated relaxation with all the loose shapes – duster coats, wide culottes and relaxed kimonos in chambray and Shibori-inspired tie dye, a reinterpretation of Dior silhouettes created for Japan in 1957.
Chiuri interspersed her pileups of printed jackets, frothy lace dresses and skirts with fluttering chiffon goddess dresses. But overall, the collection was approachable, likable and reassuring.
