“The sixties were about personalities. It was the first time when models became personalities. It was a time of great goals, an inventive time… and these girls invented themselves.” Diana Vreeland

The year was 1968. Students were protesting in Paris and the fashion rules were being questioned and flipped. Only two years prior, a group of young women stood outside the Dior boutique with placards proclaiming Miniskirts Forever. Marc Bohan, Dior’s Artistic Director during the swinging Sixties, launched the Miss Dior collection that reinterpreted the idea of ​​femininity. Fifty years later, this sartorial revolution still continues to inspire Artistic Director Maria Grazia Chiuri.

For Dior’s Fall/Winter 2018 collection, Chiuri channeled this spirit of feminine rebellion via patchworks that were pieced together from archival prints. Flowy organza dresses, schoolgirl kilts, and ponchos recalled the popular silhouettes of the era, while exquisite embroidery adorned everything from jeans to knitwear. Chiuri layered dresses over thigh-high biker boots and slung bags with heavily ornamented straps across the body. The act of cutting loose and choosing one’s own image that ran rampant during the ’60s Youthquake is precisely what Chiuri proposed for today’s modern woman.
