Dior S/S 2017

Newly minted creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri takes a feminist stance for her debut collection at the French house

Mood board: Maria Grazia Chiuri’s debut at Dior was bound to be a turning point of sorts. Her female gaze made all the difference, and these new Dior pieces were more grounded than what we have become used to at the house.
 
Best in show: Chiuri’s love for adornment shone through in the embellished sheer tulle skirts with gilded hearts, insect embroidery, floral lace and wistfully illustrated sheer silk dresses.
 
Finishing touches: J’Adior, a playful riff on the houses successful J’adore Dior tagline of the Galliano years, was placed on the straps of chain bags – perhaps Chiuri’s way of showing her confidence in her capacity of filling her predecessors’ shoes.
