Dior Spring Summer 2018
The powerful feminist vision that expressed it into the new generation of fashion.
The spell Dior casted upon the bevy of fashion troopers is the most powerful one this season. Maria Grazia Chiuri drew direct reference to feminist artist, Nikki de Saint Phalle and late Marc Borhan, former Dior creative director.
Clearly the strong positioning of Dior woman as playful, eccentric and idiosyncratic proves to match with the eclectic personified by the new generation of fashion maven. The fabrics in the collection were expansive, the myriad colour combinations were unusual yet refreshing.
Elements of disco party vibes is prevalent throughout the collection, such as the reflective mirrors well paired with assorted mini skirts. The coordinates are so good that one will not find checkerboard patterns, bold stripes, denim fringes, layered textured tulle being ghastly nor distasteful. The collection story has been skillfully tied together by the anchoring Christian Dior branded straps and a matching tote bags and clutches.
Such basic Dior style created by Chiuri has been seen as nonthreatening and is highly accessible to the woman who carries the populist aesthetics.
