Safe to say we're packing our bags with Dior and heading straight for an Aegean Summer.
Maria Grazia Chiuri's latest Resort 2022 collection for Christian Dior was presented at Panathenaic Stadium in Athens, Greece. With white as the dominant colour, in reference to historic statues which inspired the designer in the evolution of the sporty yet feminine silhouettes.
The collection explores the freedom of movement which we have lacked in recent times. Representing the needs of the modern world through enrichment of sporty details whilst retaining the dynamic couture which distinguishes the Maison. Collaborating with local artisans, Chiuri incorporated unique embroidery details into chunky sneakers, a Book Tote and Bar Jacket.
“Everybody thinks of Greece and Italy in terms of holidays...But our research was really big in terms of the history of Greece. We worked to show how important this time was, not least for the 20th century”. says creative director Chiuri.
Now we're off to buy our one way ticket to Greece...
