On Our Minds: Maria Grazi Chiuri’s Debut Collection for Dior
The ex-Valentino designer sent out model's in a millennial-friendly, slogan-strewed collection
On our minds is Maria Grazia Chiuri’s debut collection for Dior. Unveiled at Paris Fashion Week, her SS17 take on the French fashion house’s signature feminine aesthetic served as a tribute to modern women and their changing needs. Making use of her wide experience within RTW, accessories and haute couture, Valentino-bred Chiuri presented romantic rock’n’roll-fused looks with highly functional and feminist undertones. The collection saw embroidered tulle skirts, denim dungarees and slogan T-shirts with the words “We should all be feminists” and “Diorevolution”, and was modelled by a somewhat surprisingly anonymous cast with none of the mayor Insta-players walking the show. The pro-female sentiment was further emphasised in a series of short behind-the- scenes films of the women making Chiuri’s first collection, hashtagged #TheWomenBehindMyDress.
