French luxury fashion house Christian Dior presented their fall/winter 2017 collection at Paris fashion week fall 2017.
“Among all the colors, navy blue is the only one which can never compete with black, it has all the same qualities” wrote Christian Dior.
Creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri embraced a color that was among Monsieur Dior’s great favorites: blue. She reactivates the different codes of the House’s heritage with transgression, without fetishism or nostalgia.
The collection is a sequence of pieces that reconnect emotions, feelings and memories. Inspired by the ample hood, borrowed from the tunics of pastors, Maria Grazia Chiuri reinterprets the idea of the Chevrier look from the Haute Couture Autumn-Winter 1949 collection in a series of jackets, skirts, dresses, capes, coats and small bomber jackets, revisiting the extravagance of the original hood through a more contemporary and sporty attitude, and the transgressive use of materials: taffeta, velvet, herringbone motifs, knit.
Blue, the color symbol of power, beauty and spirituality, is employed for genderless outfits and to express differences.
