Straw Flowers

The hats designed by Stephen Jones are a Parisian reinterpretation of traditional styles worn by Mexican horsewomen. 

In delicately woven straw and in two formats, they’re trimmed with a flower-embroidered ribbon that recalls those running through the collection.

Waist It

Corsets and wide leather belts in plain black or totally embroidered in Mexican flowers emphasized the models’ waists. In reference to the equestrian world and the House’s heritage, each style of belt is in the form of the ‘Saddle’ bag with its emblematic curved flap and tab decorated with a golden “D”.

Stable Footing

To lend the finishing touch to this horsewoman style, Maria Grazia Chiuri gave a fresh spin to the boots associated with the discipline. These Dior styles come in khaki or black rubber, decorated with a star on the sole, in a subtle nod to one of the House’s symbols. Two other styles in black leather boast silvered spurs or a scalloped side studded with press fasteners.

Pump up the Volume

Paired with Bar jackets or shapely leather bodices and wide leather belts that highlight the waist, full tulle skirts complete a look based around striking layerings and proportions. Whether black, white or khaki, they’re sometimes embroidered with stripes or colorful Mexican-inspired motifs.

Romantic Leather

Inspired by Victorian style, tops and skirts in shapely lambskin leather in black and ivory bring a breath of contemporary femininity. Graphic motifs that have been laser-cut and then entirely embroidered by hand mix modern and traditional savoir-faire.

Bar Jacket

Emphasizing the models’ feminine curves, the Bar jacket, a House icon with its distinctive architectural lines, reappears in a series of looks that echo the amazons and women riders who shaped Maria Grazia Chiuri’s creative output.

Mexican Embroideries

In tribute to the outfits worn by the escaramuzas, a key source of inspiration for the collection, Maria Grazia Chiuri designed graphically-embroidered dresses and skirts. Multicolored or in black and white, they evoke traditional Mexican motifs.
