Sasha Pivovarova: Model and Actress

The model who opened the ready-to-wear spring-summer 2018 show, in jeans and a t-shirt printed with the title of Linda Nochlin's essay “Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?” is herself also an artist. She draws all the time, wherever she is, notably during those long waits backstage.

Julia Trotta – Linda Nochlin's Granddaughter 

Just after taking in the ready-to-wear spring-summer 2018 show, Julia Trotta spoke to us about the provocation and irony behind the title of the essay “Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?” written by her grandmother Linda Nochlin and published in 1971.

Architectural Cuts

The House’s ready-to-wear ateliers, just steps from 30 Avenue Montaigne, were where this jacket from look 23 in last week’s spring-summer 2018 show was made. Sleeve heads, collars and darts were precision-shaped in order to obtain the outfit’s sixties-feel silhouette.

Crêpe and Tulle

In order to transpose the femininity encapsulated by the artist Niki de Saint Phalle into the dresses in the ready-to-wear spring-summer 2018 collection, the Dior ateliers used vaporous fabrics that sensually reveal the body through plays of transparency.

The Art of Embroidery

With identical reproductions of Niki de Saint Phalle’s colorful drawings, sequins imitating the mosaics of the artist’s sculptures, and pale tulle flowers inspired by her Les Mariées series of works, the ready-to-wear spring-summer 2018 collection designed by Maria Grazia Chiuri is a powerful statement of the savoir-faire and art of detail the House’s ateliers can boast.
