The Cruise 2018 Campaign

For the Dior cruise 2018 campaign, the actress and muse Jennifer Lawrence was photographed by Brigitte Lacombe, an ongoing House collaborator, portraying the creations designed by Maria Grazia Chiuri. 

In this series of images, the universe of the House meets that of the American artist Georgia O’Keeffe, one of the figures who inspired the collection. "When I started becoming interested in the desert, in the course of my quest for inspiration I came across the extraordinary work of Georgia O'Keeffe, a modern shaman, with her recognizably majestic and solemn look in the sands of New Mexico. A research that is above all an inner journey, in itself and within its own feminine identity,” the Artistic Director explains.

In a setting of organic, spare forms and a muted atmosphere, Jennifer Lawrence embodies the 2018 cruise collection’s singular femininity, and its special connection to nature. The actress wears long dresses or long vests whose motifs evoke desert flowers, paired with charm necklaces, or a revisited Bar jacket worn in a relaxed manner, with trousers and a white shirt. Hats, worn over a headscarf knotted at the neck, are designed by Stephen Jones. To complete the look, J'adior and Lady Dior bags have been produced in earthy and organic shades, or with a shoulder strap inspired by Native American craftsmanship.

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.

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.
