Christian Dior Haute Couture 2017-2018 Autumn Winter by Maria Grazia Chiuri
Choosing a single high point from an event that contained nothing but exceptional moments would prove nigh on impossible, so we took the just-unveiled Autumn-Winter 2017-18 haute couture collection designed by Artistic Director #MariaGraziaChiuri and distilled it into an under a minute of heart-stopping splendor! Take a look on Dior Haute Couture 2017-2018 for all the content around the show! The luxury fashion house celebrates its 70th anniversary. Indeed, it was ’47 when Monsieur Dior created what would become an empire. Seventy years since the first parade in a small atelier then. Today Maria Grazia Chiuri, the first woman at the reins of the House has decided to pay homage to her in her own way. Celebrating precisely the woman. For Chiuri, the atlas does not stop the idea of journey itself rather to self-discovery. It means growth, mutation, emotion. A path in the first place personal.
With exquisite authority, this first look – worn by Ruth Bell – sets the stage for the incomparable exploration of culture and timeless Dior style that #MariaGraziaChiuri’s Autumn-Winter 2017-18 haute couture show represents.
Like those pioneering female adventurers who challenged the status quo by daring to enter an occupation originally the territory of men, #MariaGraziaChiuri’s just-unveiled Autumn-Winter 2017-18 haute couture collection reprised Monsieur Dior’s own revolution by taking traditionally masculine fabrics and colors and making them unmistakably feminine, softening silhouettes and mixing shades of gray together in one look. Meanwhile, the fedora by hat maestro Stephen Jones closes the circle with a nod to explorers such as Freya Stark! #DiorCouture
IN 53′, SHE WAS RELEASED “CHRISTIAN DIOR IN THE WORLD” IN WHICH VOLUME KEPT AN ENGRAVING BY ALBERT DECARIS
“I have purchased a map of Paris printed on a pocket handkerchief” —Karl Gutzkow
On one hand, there’s the 1953 Albert Decaris etching that turned up in the Dior archives, a map of the five continents that retraces the House’s expansion around the world. On the other, there’s the couturier’s assertion in his autobiography, Dior by Dior: “A complete collection should address all types of women in all countries.” Both of these inspirations guided Maria Grazia Chiuri, the Artistic Director of women’s collections, in creating the Autumn-Winter 2017-2018 Haute Couture collection that celebrates the House’s 70th anniversary.
For her Autumn-Winter 2017-18 haute couture collection, #MariaGraziaChiuri takes major meterage of an undeniably modest fabric like wool serge, molds it into a fitted and flaring coat dress with potentially prim overtones, and then unexpectedly slices it open to bare a collarbone as an erogenous zone of the most elite kind. Every look holds a stunning surprise – the magic of couture!
Here is the summary. A cultural journey, emotional, full of different shades all women. A style journey, today represented in the new Haute Couture collection autumn-winter 2017-18. A versatile collection, if only for the use of fabrics that also sees masculine fabrics and made sublimated by changing treatments and new technologies.
Monsieur Dior loved to introduce a jolt of color in each of his shows – his ‘coup de Trafalgar’ – and with this belted skirt suit Maria Grazia Chiuri’s Autumn-Winter 2017-18 haute couture collection embraced the idea. And in, what else, Dior red!
