All threads have been tailored toward Maria Grazia Chiuri since she’s been appointed to the house of Christian Dior. With a historically male-influenced artistic direction, Chiuru is looking for her own mark on tradition with the brand and restoring the feminism and charm the new millennial searches for. Today she held her resort show in Chantilly, a city filled with women running the rodeo – literally, she drew inspiration from the escaramuza.
Coming across the female Rodeo riders at via photographs by Devin Doyle – she intricately focused on the the time of the Mexican Revolutionary War. While still keeping the houses tradition with the classic polka dots and pleats, she included cotton, lace, embroidered jacquard, and leather beaded waistbands. Each look was inclusive and well defined. In addition, unlike other brands – Maria include the works of the culture by including an eight-woman crew flown in from Mexico and decked in custom Dior, with perfectly crafted choreography to open and close the show.
