Christian Dior Couture Fall 2018

By  | 

It would’ve never crossed your mind and you would’ve never seen it coming – Maria Grazia Chiuri’s Fall 2018 couture collection for Dior wasn’t as statement making and revolutionizing as her initial feminist-driven collections. It was elegant, refined and portrayed the exuberance of what “couture” craftsmanship really is.

From a palette of blush, rose, navy and primarily nude, Chiuri’s pieces were an idealistic perception of what couture is and will carry on being for the generations to come. I don’t say that based on the collection of toiles that decorated the venue, which mind you seemed a bit revenant – but because of the endearing body-con portrayal of couture garments.

From sheer gowns that could’ve been mistaken for the models bare skin, rich-hued structured-but-light satins, to suits and overcoats with details featuring an abundance of pleats or the cut of a sleeve, the pieces were as Chiuri states
an intimate relationship with the client”.

From a political, cultural and philosophical point of view, Chiuri’s tenure at the house of Dior surely does take a toll on current events. From her first impression with the “We should all be feminists” T-shirt, to her 60’s couture rendition, what would she do next? What cause would she champion next? Would it be an innuendo towards a long gone societal dispute? Or would it be a vocal cry for help, portrayed through tight seams, adorned with beadwork?
