Setting New Trends With Dior’s Summer Fashion Collection 2021
Dior’s Spring Summer Collection 2021 is the brand’s first in-person fashion show since the rise of Covid-19. Creative Director, Maria Grazia Chiuri, drew inspiration from fine art, feminism, and her Italian heritage to put together this awe-inspiring event as part of Paris Fashion Week.
The show itself was a spectacle of colour and art – set amid a backdrop of bold collages to highlight the many silhouettes that frame this ready-to-wear fashion collection.
Silhouettes show a fundamental simplicity, liberating body and spirit, celebrating more than ever the alliance of comfort and elegance. The garment is constructed flat, in a two-dimensional way, giving rise to ample and light shapes.
Patchworks of scarves, with paisley and floral motifs, punctuated with fragments of lace, adorn a series of dresses and trousers, exalting the infinite possibilities of the imagination.
Fascinated by the power of thought embodied by authors such as Virginia Woolf and Susan Sontag, the Creative Director of Dior women’s collections revisits the essence of clothing, from men’s shirts to sleek coats, magnifying the savoir-faire of world cultures from Japan to Indonesia.
A creative journey that extends to Bali, where the Endek Ikat is made by weavers in total respect for tradition. Coming to life at the heart of this collection, its silk threads enhance coats and jackets in a harmonious dialogue with chiné, while other silhouettes feature stripes or the enchanting tie & dye motif.
An ode to freedom of movement in which shoes, such as sandals and ballerinas, take an assertive stance. Turbans, the final detail, crown these looks with a touch of audacity, transforming every woman into a new icon.
Adding the final touch to Maria Grazia Chiuri’s silhouettes, accessories render the inspirations of the collection sublime, like a bewitching tribute to the origins of fashion and to pluralistic creativity. Jewelry, shoes, hats, and bags become testimonies to every woman’s poetic expression.
