Savoir-faire: Step inside the Dior workshops to discover the secrets of haute couture dresses
For the presentation of its Spring/Summer 2021 haute couture collection, Dior opened the doors of its workshops, in which the mystical, tarot-inspired pieces were made.
Diorrevealed silhouettes inspired by a sacred aesthetic for its Spring/Summer 2021 show. It was a tribute toChristian Dior's passion for divinatory arts thatMariaGrazia Chiuricreated the latest haute couture collection. Although shirts, skirts, pants and capes accompany a new interpretation of the legendary
Barjacket, there is an accent on eveningwear glamour. The collection is a representation of a fascinating, imaginary world, through a series of dresses meticulously crafted, right down to the smallest details. These details were party borrowed from artist
PietroRuffo,whose drawings of a singular card game appear on some designs. It was the Italian filmmakerMatteoGarronewho made these designs come to life, like animated ghosts full on wonder. Among these finely crafted dresses, two designs necessitated goldsmith work. headtopics.com
Here, it is the lines of theMissdress, an iconic silhouette byChristian Dior, thatMaria Grazia Chiuridecided to reimagine in lamé mat gold whose aged effect sublimates an interlacing of delicately embroidered flowers. This unique craftsmanship results in an all-gold haute couture creation worthy of a fairytale.
Another star piece of the collection is theLa Protagonistadress, using a technique from the 18th century called “lacca povera” which consists of imitatingChinese lacquerby using engravings. The result? Voluptuous lines, with flowery patterns on white lace, evoking a pure silhouette, drawing its symbolic innocence from a divine reinvented world.
