An ultra-modern reinvention of tailoring combines the purity of form with the complexity of savoir-faire. This virtuosity can be seen in a double-sided cashmere coat of remarkable technique and an architectural silhouette. Another must-have is a supple jacket made without any lining or reinforcement for optimal lightness and comfort.
Embroidery is metamorphosed beyond mere ornament through the silhouettes of the Dior spring-summer 2022 haute couture collection, to the point of structuring the garment. Applied in an all-over fashion, it almost becomes a new material in and of itself, a fabric in its own right, embracing and redrawing the curves of the body. These architectural elements are the fruit of multiple skills and are created with passion and refinement by the artisans from the Chanakya, Vermont and Lesage ateliers, who work with the House from Paris to Mumbai.
Just add sparkle
Shimmering embroideries take center stage, rendered ever more sparkling by hypnotic, precious beading that ups the wattage on an already luminous collection, which Maria Grazia Chiuri created alongside craftspeople of infinite savoir-faire, dialoguing across borders.
A favorite of Maria Grazia Chiuri, this icon of Antiquity fascinates with its elementary form, like an elemental wardrobe piece that embraces the body while liberating it. For the Dior spring-summer 2022 haute couture line the peplum is revisited by the Creative Director via long, flowing dresses, elevated by iridescent effects and airy draping, in an ode to grace and sculptural elegance.
