A/W 21/22 Christian Dior womenswear collection was released in the Hall of Mirrors at Versaille, Paris. The creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri chooses a territory where the time-space dimension is erased. Inspired by the The Bloody Chamber collection, published in 1979 by Gollancz, director explores the fairy tales and interprets the confident and fearless contemporary women image through her extraordinary perspective. Chiuri lined the hall with artworks by the Italian artist Silvia Giambrone, creating a fantastic fairy tale in the legendary Hall of Mirrors. The tale is hardly just a means of escape: it serves to challenge and revisit stereotypes and archetypes. It consists of a narrative projected into the future. The toy soldier's uniform, shimmering lamé and Lurex jacquards and evening gowns are fit for princesses. A new self-awareness, born of a feminine sensibility that knows how to blend memories of the past and maturity, as if by magic.
The fantastic colors of evening gown show elegance and playfulness with red hearts, artistic flowers and pleated detail. Evening gowns are fit for princesses, in layered tulles that seem to evaporate in a froth of marvelous colors. Then there are white collars, plastrons in broderie anglaise, and white bobby socks recalling the world of childhood.
Black & white princess dress combines pleated A-line skirt with 3D bishop sleeves and charming ruffles. The exquisite cutout patterns and leather texture show the style of dark fairy tale. Its black and white colors present both good and evil.
The iconic Bar Jacket reinterprets the Cannage Motif. And the combination with hood rebuilds the charming classic black and white.
