Spring-Summer 2021 Haute Couture Collection
Christian Dior was passionate about the divinatory arts and signs of destiny. His autobiography is punctuated with often fateful encounters with visionary personalities: “It will be extraordinary. Your house will revolutionize fashion!” he recalled of a prophecy come true.
Behind the Scenes
Perpetuating its steadfast links with Italian cinema and culture, the House entrusted Matteo Garrone with the production of a unique film revealing Maria Grazia Chiuri’s spring-summer 2021 haute couture collection. A new celebration of excellence in savoir-faire through magical symbols.
A Dreamlike Journey
Fascinated by Italo Calvino’s novel The Castle of Crossed Destinies, Maria Grazia Chiuri chose to design her collection using the wonderful Visconti-Sforza tarot cards for exceptional creations symbolizing the major arcana. A tale celebrating the magical beauty of the divinatory arts.

Monsieur Dior and Superstition
Reinterpreting the fascinating world of the divinatory arts Maria Grazia Chiuri loves, this collection pays subtle homage to Monsieur Dior, who also believed in the signs of destiny. “Being superstitious, I rushed to touch the slightest piece of wood,” he confided in his autobiography. A mesmerizing passion, filled with a sense of magic and dreams.
