Maria Grazia Chiuri presented Christian Dior’s Spring 2021 collection live, in a (huge) tent inside the Tuileries Garden in Paris. From the inside, the tent seemed anything but a tent, rather a protected and imaginative space, made of colours, lights and engaging sounds. For Chiuri this is an essential point: we have rediscovered the closed spaces of our homes and, even if we hope to go back “to society” asap, we learned to appreciate tranquility and familiarity of such places, the comfort they give us and safety they instill. From here, the spring collection of the French Maison has been constructed to fit comfortably in our living rooms.
Obviously, it wasn’t easy. Christian Dior did couture and did not think about the relaxation of shapes, but more about their definition. The result, however, is excellent and consists of long relaxed dresses, matching outfit with bralettes and shorts worn with enveloping capes, chiffon shirts and square sweaters that wrap without compressing. Denim also loses all its stiffness. To adapt the classic Dior suit, Chiuri has made the shapes wider, the belts at the waist only slightly marking. The black satin suit is gorgeous.
Details and accessories are interesting as always. There are thin leather belts and intertwined flat sandals; small golden jewels, which all together become visible. These, plus the prints, have a certain ethnic soul.

Specially commissioned by @MariaGraziaChiuri for the unveiling of the #DiorSS21 collection, filmmaker Alina Marazzi turned her focus to the work and person of Lucia Marcucci, the pioneering Italian artist whose provocative collages fuse mass media visuals with poetry, and provided the awesome scenography for the show. Given unprecedented access to her archives, Marazzi discusses how she brought the artist's work and vision to life. © Photo: @ClaraVannu
