Autumn-Hiver 2016-17
Ready-to-Wear Show

04 March 2016 - Paris - 14H30 (GMT+01)

The collection: black silhouettes as crisp as the sheets of white paper on which they spring to life: dense, textured, embroidered and quilted. There follow hand-painted dévoré velvets, re-colored jacquards inspired by one of Monsieur Dior’s iconic sketches – the one of the Ice Cream dress –, fragments of color, embroidered motifs atop prints, a touch of leopard… Everything lies in the mix and the compilation.

Looks etch out the contours of femininity in movement, capturing the electric attitude of a rebellious Parisienne on a mission to master untamed territory. Eccentric, whimsical, adorned. She is seductive. Assertive. Fun-loving.

Necklines play on sensual allure; the shoulder is draped, concealed or laid bare; a flash of skin without false modesty. Volumes and silhouettes emerge from the sway of a line, a stylistic circumlocution. The influence of men’s tailoring and work clothes accentuate the determined stride of an urban jungle explorer. Peplums are asymmetrical and sometimes exaggerated; large pockets on workwear and wide, buttoned martingales offer up a new interpretation of the lines on the Bar suit. Dior silhouettes with generous volumes define the Dior woman’s new reality, one that is free and dynamic, current and intuitive.

Accessories: seemingly mobile rings; multi-clip ear jewelry. Handbags like scaled-up wallets have multiple compartments, and are paired with cross-body sunglasses cases. A new Dior icon: a bag entirely embroidered or in exotic leather, ostrich, crocodile and lizard mixed together to create an aesthetic friction.
