A collection presented in a period full of questions and no answers, when lockdown clothes were a must and fashion landscapes change all the time. Dior’s spring summer 2021 ready-to-wear collection connected with the way we were living at the moment, reflecting battles with quarantine, curfews and lockdown. Maria Grazia Chiuri helped us observe the concept of fashion change drastically and the way collections were presented by choosing a socially distanced venue with a touch of stained glass and photographic collages, creating the one and only Dior cathedral.
The first model walked in reflecting a new life style, a collection full of pants and shirts representing the unforgettable 2020: comfortwear, roman sandals for summer, thin tunics dressing gowns along with hourglass skirt suits and Japanese inspired kimonos. Chiuri’s feelings toward 2021 were not exactly looking forward to a post-covid life, instead, the collection was full of textures inspiring body liberation and at-home garments for daily wear.
An all-female chorus echoed in Dior’s cathedral, filling it with loud vocal runs that transported us to a religious-like venue. Lucia Marucci’s 1960s collages created a perfect background for a liberated and comfortable collection that communicated self love and a unique image of women.
Dior’s relaxed silhouettes, floating gowns all over the runway, knitted textures and Japanese inspired pieces created a perfect mixture of women empowerment along with our daily struggles and luxurious elevated relaxation.
