The Haim Sisters’ Dresses 

For the pre-party at which they performed Wednesday evening, and for last night’s Guggenheim International Gala dinner, Danielle, Alana and Este, the three sisters making up the group HAIM, wore Dior creations specially designed for them by Maria Grazia Chiuri. Their red dresses or outfits, in chiffon or pleated or gathered tulle, or covered with mosaic-like embroideries, recalling the inspirations running through the ready-to-wear spring-summer 2018, were produced in the House’s ateliers.

The three sisters in the band Haim —Danielle (guitar and drums), Este (bass), and Alana (guitar and keyboards) — have been making music together for as long as they can remember. Growing up in the San Fernando Valley outside Los Angeles, their musician parents nurtured them as they grew into talented multi-instrumentalists. As teens, they were already playing at local charity events with the family band. Danielle was discovered at a jam session by Jenny Lewis, and recruited into Lewis’s touring band, while Este earned a bachelor’s in ethnomusicology (she studied Brazilian drumming and Bulgarian folk singing) at UCLA. In 2007, when Alana, the baby of the family, was 15, the sisters formed their own group, and this summer they released their hotly anticipated second album. Like their home state, Haim’s sound is lush and sunny — a blend of nostalgic 1970s references with touches of ’90s R’n’B, folk, and funk. The sisters’ multi-layered harmonies and big guitar sounds have earned comparisons to Fleetwood Mac. At the Guggenheim International Gala, they took to the stage in front of a glittering crowd of the museum’s supporters, who danced along to songs including the new single “Want You Back” and a soulful cover of the late Tom Petty’s “I Won’t Back Down.” Alana Haim paused for a moment between songs to take in the crowd, which filled the museum’s atrium up to the second story. “We are freaking out, it’s so beautiful,” she said. “This is like a dream!”
