Chiuri continued with her feminist message in the collection, as one of the tee-shirts read Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists? Clearly, this was a collection for the younger clientele. With patchwork jeans, tees, athleisure and night-club-wear, the collection had a millennial appeal more than the glamour and opulence we’ve come to expect from the house of Dior, especially ever since the Galliano era.
It was also a mosaic collection – showcased in a structure covered in glass mosaic as “eighty-two thousand shimmering mirror pieces covered the walls and floor in a series of mosaics to magically reflect Maria Grazia Chiuri’s designs as they sashayed by,” according to the Dior website.
The looks matched the ambience – we saw lots of mirror mosaic dresses, some in color and some without.
The accessories gave a nod to the millenial clothing – we saw chokers worn with multiple chain necklaces, low block heels, lace-up sock boots and stacked bracelets that gave the high-street brand-like feel (been to Forever 21 or H&M lately, anyone?)
Despite my (and of course, every real woman’s) protests, Chiuri also continues with the sheer skirts and dresses. Of course, when the underwear shows underneath a dress, we can’t wear it to work on a Friday, or to have coffee with friends, or to a casual party. And honestly, we millennial women don’t have time for much else.
