A view from a new perspective
This season, the House of Dior draws inspiration from the Visconti-Sforza tarot deck, created at the end of the 15th century by the painter Bonifacio Bembo for the Dukes of Milan. The collection, which combines the past with the present, was presented with the help of a fifteen-minute short film directed by Matteo Garrone. In the film, the viewer is invited to a castle inhabited by characters who question, disorient and challenge him to start looking at the world from a new perspective. In the director's depiction, this task transcends gender boundaries and represents a connection between the male and female worlds. On top of that, the gender boundary has been crossed by the outfits themselves. Maria Grazia Chiuri introduces seductive female outfits in combination with minimalist men's style.
Tarot is a key to a magical realm, a way to explore the unknown of the depths of your own self. The haute couture collection Spring 2021 also reflects this. It is full of experimentation and endless possibilities. Would you like to deck yourself in elegant tweed on the first day, in tender cashmere or organza on the second, and in mysterious black velvet on the next one? It was black velvet that was used for the iconic Dior Bar Jacket, which is cut to express a new view of the world.
A revolution in footwear
The collection features several outfits that prove that Maria Grazia Chiuri is the right woman for the job. Precise handwork, the choice of the most luxurious materials, and non-traditional cuts make these garments a work of art. The cherry on top is the footwear, which literally makes a revolutionary impression in combination with fine organza and other transparent materials. So, are you ready to rise up?!
