For the Spring-Summer 2020 Ready-to-Wear collection, Maria Grazia Chiuri drew inspiration from archival photographs of Catherine Dior, Christian Dior’s sister. She had a passion for flowers and gardens. An essential protagonist in Dior’s history, she embodied Miss Dior.
This new collection evokes, through its motifs and embroideries, through shine and the texture of raffia, a vision of luxuriant vegetation. It is presented in the manner of herbaria, living catalogs and the memory of botanical species.
The scenography for the show was designed in collaboration with Coloco. These landscape artists conceived the show like a moment suspended in time, where plants of diverse origins temporarily come together. The trees that appeared at the Paris-Longchamp hippodrome for the duration of this show will continue their journey. They will join several long-term projects so that this pluralistic garden’s life may endure.
Several stars attended the show, we have selected some pictures below.
