Maria Grazia Chiuri, Artistic Director of Dior haute couture, women’s ready-to-wear and accessories collections says of her debut SS17 collection, “I strive to be attentive and open to the world and to create fashion that resembles the women of today… Fashion that corresponds to their changing needs, freed from the stereotypical categories of ‘masculine/feminine’, ‘young/not so young’, ‘reason/emotion’, which nonetheless also happen to be complementary aspects.”

Colours were plentiful within the collection, and pieces were unveiled in shades of blue, white, black, grey, and pink. Christian Dior’s beloved red while tulle, silk chiffon, and georgette were cut into maxi skirts of varying lengths, to reflect a woman’s varying desires.

Chiuri is the maison’s first female designer in 70 years, after spending close to 10 years at Valentino.
