Maria Grazia Chiuri’s 2020 fall-winter 2020 haute couture collection for Dior was presented with a film by Italian director Matteo Garrone, twice winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival for “Gomorrah” and “Reality.” This charming celebration of the workshops of the famous label plunges the audience into a fascinating universe with fantastic poetic images that reinvent the Dior dream. The presentation was followed by an interview with Maria Grazia Chiuri, the creative director of Dior’s women’s collections.

The second day of Haute Couture Week will be marked by the presentation of a collection by Rahul Mishra. In a statement sent to the press, the Indian designer has indicated his intention to address two major subjects: The pandemic, which has particularly affected the skilled, unskilled, and migrant workers in India as well as the solidarity that it prompted in the brand’s workshops, and also the global resurgence of nature during the lockdown, which was suddenly free to grow without human intervention. Called “Butterfly People,” the presentation is expected to be as enchanting as it is moving.

The event by Valentino, which will combine digital and physical elements from both Paris and Rome, will be very closely watched for its wholly new format. Valentino creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli’s homage to the inspiration for his new collection will be exclusively online; however, on July 21, it will be followed by a fully-fledged physical show in Rome. The first part of this hybrid premiere will no doubt be one of the high points in the week of haute couture.
