Massimo Giorgetti mixes preppie style and athleisure (see the drawstring detailing and the ‘running’ sandals), reworks the skirts’ volumes and adorns them with ruffles, that are also placed on the men’s shirts. Oversized volumes, big flounces and vibrant hues.
Karl Lagerfeld revisits the house’s heritage and sends down the catwalks a contemporary woman that mixes a allure sporty with ladylike elements, rococo shapes, oversized silhouettes maxi pockets and puffed sleeves, while studs embellish bags and sneakers.
The first ‘solo’ collection designed by Pierpaolo Piccioli after Maria Grazia Chiuri left the house to join Dior. Extra long tunics featuring embroideries of hearts run though by a sword, floating printed dresses, jacquard velvet, chiffon dresses with quotes from Ovidius.
The much-anticipated first collection designed by Maria Grazia Chiuri for Dior includes bustier minidresses, circle skirts teamed with biker jackets, long tulle embroidered dresses, enchanting motifs and patterns, a magical mood that blends with sporty accessories and purses destined to become the next it-bags. She revisits and lightens the iconic Bar jacket and pays homage to past Dior designers: John Galliano with slogans on t-shirts, ribbons and shoe straps (J’Adior), Hedi Slimane with embroidered bees.
Riccardo Tisci leaves aside the Goth, dark mood and body-con shapes and showcases a collection created for a modern woman, with a utilitarian feel. Fabrics are more fluid and hues are softer, t-shirt dresses are embellished with ruffles and the trench coats wit zips, jackets have maxi side pockets, sheaths are built with layers and draping.
