This Dior Spring 17 collection might be one of the most anticipated of the season due to its new successor Maria Grazia Chiuri (who previously worked at Valentino as Creative Director along with Pierpaolo Piccioli since 2008).
After Raf Simons renounced to his role as Creative Director of Dior last year, there was a massive void in the fashion industry, causing interest as in to who was going to replace him and if that person was going to be able to stay at Simons’ level of excellence.
When Chiuri was appointed Creative Director of Dior it caused even more excitement, those who have followed both brands for a while know that the visions behind Valentino combined with the elegance Dior has always been renowned for are technically a woman’s dream, and Chiuri really didn’t disappoint.
With the collection, Maria Grazia Chiuri has established the beginning of a new era for Dior, an era under the control of a woman for the very first time in the brand’s history. The garments exude feminism, revolution and in a very perceptible way, protection.
All the clothes are very feminine, like Dior has always been but also have a slight touch of those certain characteristics that we all love about Valentino. The fabrics, the prints, textures and details, all so delicate that one only dreams of looking at it.
