Just like the collection itself, the show’s scenography was inspired by the art of Niki de Saint Phalle. And, more specifically, by one of her major works baptized the Tarot Garden, a sculpture park located in Tuscany that displays the tarot symbols rising from the grandeur of nature. Begun at the end of the 1970s, the project was completed by the artist’s passing in 2002.
With its metal frame covered in concrete, the Paris structure that welcomed the show guests was made employing the same techniques as Niki de Saint Phalle for her architectural artworks. Inside, eighty-two thousand shimmering mirror pieces covered the walls and floor in a series of mosaics to magically reflect Maria Grazia Chiuri’s designs as they sashayed by.
